To Cargo Sip Cruises, IJmuiden, the Netherlands:
Dear Mrs. Langeveld,
I would like to thank you for your advice and commitment in arranging our Euromed trip with
the Grande Scandinavia of Grimaldi Lines for myself and my fellow traveler, Mrs. Bolleurs.
We traveled from March 29th to May 2nd, and the experience exceeded my expectations by far.
All crew members, from the Italian captain to the lowest in rank, were friendly and tried to make
us feel welcome. And we did, it was as if we were staying with family.
We were allowed access to all corners of the ship, even the ‘restricted areas’. All safety
regulations were strictly complied with, and I was allowed to photograph everywhere I liked.
All crew members were proud of ‘their’ ship, showing us around and answering our questions.
Meals were abundant and served in style, and our cabin was always clean and neat.
There are a few highlights of this unforgettable trip that I would like to mention: at the easter
party on April 4th a giant meal for all crew and passengers was served. The captain enjoyed his
fruitpunch and pizza amidst his crew. It was a great experience.
Also, the evacuation drill on the shores of Savona, the fire drill on April 16th and our visits to the
bridge with its technical wonders and the gargantuan engine room made a lasting impression on
us. We will send you our photographs to show you how much fun we had.
Please inform Grimaldi Lines of our appreciation. We hope to be able to book another passage
with one of their ships.
We thank you very much and we will be in touch again.
