We sailed Noordam many times during those years and I know a couple of Officers who sailed on her also. None of us has ever heard of a CD Brian Thomas on the Noordam.

Are you sure you have the right name?

Hi,
thanks for the response! Yes it was definately Brian Thomas and he did work in the tour office I believe around 1985. Then was cruise director around 1988. He,s English, and was quite into photography, I believe.

I think you are out of luck - that's 20 years ago and I have asked other friends who work/ed for HAL during that time and they don't remember him. Sorry.

Nope - none of those names ring a bell. I knew some of the Alders gals - Kathy Morton, Lesley Cox, Ronnie - think it was Shawer. I knew a Lou (gal) who was the girlfriend of one of the Officers, - dont' know if I ever knew her name.

Do you remember the names of any of the Officers? Some from the era are not retired and others now Captains.

Anita - just spoke to a friend who used to work on the ship and Lou Ball is the gal I know - at the that time she was the girlfriend of one of the Officers, who to this day is still a good friend of ours.

Anita - tried to click on what I thought was your e-mail address and send you a long e-mail, but it didn't work. If you want to give me the correct one, I will reply, rather than do it here.
