Holland America Line's Oosterdam at sea
On January 13th 2012, our Volunteers @ Sea, John & Marilyn officially presented our especially assigned drawing of Holland America Line's Oosterdam to the Master of the vessel, Captain Arjen C. van der loo, on behalf of Dream Designs Colchester, during their 7 night cruise aboard.
John & Marilyn had presented drawing on our behalf on two previous occasions and were kind enough to offer to present a drawing aboard Oosterdam. We were truly delighted to offer them such an opportunity again.
Holland America Line were kind enough to arrange for our honourable Volunteers @ Sea, John & Marilyn, to visit the navigation bridge aboard Oosterdam, where they were invited to meet with the Master of the vessel, Captain Arjen C. van der loo and the Hotel Director, James Deering.
During their time on the navigation bridge, John & Marilyn had the opportunity to officially present our especially assigned drawing of Oosterdam. The ship's on board photographer was available to capture some photographs of the presentation of our drawing.
We have been in touch with the Holland America Line blog, who kindly helped arranged for the official drawing presentation to take place. They were also kind enough to forward the official photographs to us as well. It is hoped that our drawing presentation will be featured on the Holland America Line blog soon too!
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
" It was my pleasure to offer our wonderful Volunteers @ Sea, John & Marilyn, the opportunity to officially present our especially assigned drawing of Oosterdam, during their cruise aboard the vessel."
" We were extremely pleased to see that Holland America Line were able to accommodate John & Marilyn and invite them to meet personally with the Captain on the bridge to officially present our drawing. I personally would like to thank Holland America Line, both the crew aboard Oosterdam and staff ashore, for making this possible."
