  • Dear Mme Pfeiffer,
    we arrived at home yesterday.
    I want to thank you for this very nice journey.
    The MV Gerd arrived to Antwerp, berth 913, on March 1st as expected and we embarked at once, but it restarted only on March 4th in the morning. It was not in our intention, but we used this delay to visit Antwerp. MV Gerd was alongside the quay just next to the cathedral so it was easy. It’s a beautiful and rich city ((the center).
    In Ireland, we were only in Belfast...

  • Many thanks again for my latest cargo ship experience which was wonderful.
    I enjoyed the trip on the Gerda, with Captain H. who ensured that I had my best experience to date. Also, a mention to the Chef, who made very tasty meals, also to all the crew, I can’t list all their names, unfortunately, however, all staff combined made my experience so enjoyable and I will definitely try to go on that route again to meet them again.
    I highly recommend this trip!
    You are very...

  • Dear Mrs Pfeiffer and Mrs Weber
    Back from Hamburg, I would like to give you my feedback.
    It was a very interesting week I spent on board; captain Z. and the officers were all very open and friendly, so there really was a good atmosphere. I have always felt welcome to go here and there, to ask questions, and able to spend a lot of time on the bridge. As I told the captain, I felt I was 40 years younger as I spent hours on the bridge, just like when I was an officer on merchant ships...
