In the month of May, 54 hotel department managers completed the HAL University leadership classes aboard Ryndam. On May 30th, a department wide meeting for supervisors and managers was organized to recapitulate what was discussed and taught during the leadership courses and to reemphasize the goals. The meeting was followed by a group picture and a delicious lunch served in the Rotterdam dining room. This was a great opportunity for everyone to get to know each other better in a semi-formal setting.
