Today was a wonderful day at sea…. The weather was very hot and sunny. Spent the day poolside with a fair amount of time in the pool. Tonight was a very special evening. I was invited to dinner in the Pinnacle Grill with Stein Kruse, President & CEO of Holland America Line for induction into the President’s Club. The President’s Club is a fairly exclusive group of people who have sailed for over 1400 days with Holland America. There are a total of 46 people in this club. The evening was just wonderful, great food and wonderful dinner companions. In addition to Stein and his wife Linda, we were joined by Captain Mercer and his wife Karen and Gerald Bernhoft, the head of the Mariner Program. It was a grand evening….. what an honor!
