It turned out to be a pretty nice day today…. It feels so good to be sitting on the aft deck, once again, with friends enjoying the sun.. Tonight we had the Captain’s Farewell Reception which was extremely well done. The video, prepared by our Cruise director Gene Young, was fabulous! I certainly will miss the staff and crew of the ms Amsterdam, they have performed in an exceptional manner and, they are like family to me. After the reception, we had a wonderful meal at the Chef’s Farewell Dinner, everything was excellent. Wonderful day!!!!
