A HAL Family Reunion on Volendam

Borrowed from the HAL Blog because I love this story!

On April 2, Volendam docked at Semarang where more than 1,000 friends and family of the crew came on board for a visit. People came from different cities in Java to see their loved ones, and a buffet was provided all afternoon offering a variety of local dishes. For many crew members it was the very first time they were able to show their family their home away from home.

Thanks to Crew Purser Jolien de Vrind for taking the photos.

    This really was such a wonderful way of celebrating your staff. They are gone for so long, and it gives their families a sense of reassurance regarding their whereabouts and living and working conditions. Kudos HAL. Here’s to Family’s.
