Default WW2 Pacific Veterans Cruise Video

This was the most memorable cruise ever on the Statendam with a full capacity of mostly WW2 veterans from Australia-USA-New Zealand & families who had lost loved ones.

The memorial services on board were so touching & heart wrenching.

On the video you will see Guadacanal (Memorial service at Iron Bottom Sound) Rabaul (Papua New Guinea...Volcano errupts) Yap Micronesia-Guam-Saipan-Iwo Jima (Memorial Service) Okinawa-Nagasaki-Osaka

Please watch part 1 & 2 for a very moving cruise

Regards Noel

Hi Deedee,

Yes it was and we are so glad we had the chance to do this & to see the Vets who will probably not see another cruise out...just blessed with the experience.
