  • Many thanks again for my latest cargo ship experience which was wonderful.

  • 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...

  • Thank You Capt. B!
    When I said to Capt. B. ‘thank you for the good atmosphere on board’
    He said to me: Well, I didn’t have any stress because the crew made a good job.
    This was what I felt, a peaceful crew, who did their work every day without complaining.
    I liked to watch the Boson splicing a perfect eye into the moorings.
