Captain Albert's Blog

Here's a little bit about the author of this blog in his own words: "Capt. Albert J. Schoonderbeek BSc, MNI, was born in the eastern part of the Netherlands in a town called Ede. In 1976 he entered the oldest Maritime Academy in the world, 'De Kweekschool voor de Zeevaart,' in Amsterdam and did his seagoing apprenticeship in 1979. Upon graduation he found employment with Holland America Line, the only Dutch company that operated cruise ships. He joined the old ss Statendam in 1981 and has never looked back. Apart from being employed onboard cruise ships, cruise ships are also the Captain's hobby. The result of this 'hobby' was that he co-authored the official company history, published to mark 125 years of Holland America Line in 1998. His latest venture was the publication of a limited edition of the Memoirs of Capt. C Haagmans, who sailed for 54 years, of which 44 were with Holland America Line, in a career that spanned two world wars and the heyday of North Atlantic Travel. When time allows he writes articles for cruise magazines and gives lectures about Holland America Line history. During the Grand World Voyage of 1987, on the old ss Rotterdam V, he met his bride to be, Lesley. They were married in 1991 and currently live in England. As both are devoted cruise fans, they like to take 'busmans holidays' on cruise ships of other companies. As the captain says, 'it is always interesting to see what the grass looks like on the other side of the fence.'. Although he might have a biased view, he is still convinced after several cruises with 'the others' that Holland America is the best there is."
