North to Alaska

This is my first time back on the ms Amsterdam since her dry dock in Dec. She is looking very nice.

We sailed out of Seattle today under the expert care of Fred Eversen. Did you know that Fred sailed on cargo ships with his dad when he was young. He start with Holland in 1980 on the Rotterdam as an apprentice officer. When he is not commanding ships he lives in my home state of Florida.
