We had a wonderful evening on New Year’s Eve….. Not only did we celebrate the approach of the New Year, it was also a birthday celebration for our friend Michael Fayne. What a great night! This morning, we had the Mariner Society Cocktail reception where people are recognized for their loyalty to the Holland America Line. All, Sandra & I were called up for a photo with the Captain Fred Eversen & Hotel Director Florin Dragomir…. A wonderful lunch followed. The rest of the day was spent just being lazy…. The outside decks were closed due to high winds so I just laid back and relaxed for the day. Happy New Year!!!!!
