Introducing Seabourn Quest's Master: Captain Geir-Arne Thue-Nilsen

I am so happy to be able to announce that Captain Geir-Arne Thue-Nilsen has officially been named the Master of the Seabourn Quest. 


He will be boarding the Seabourn Quest on June 3, 2011 (the same day I board her) and will take the keys to his ship ('er, I mean, take command) on June 14, 2011 just prior to the Seabourn Quest's Inauguration and Maiden Voyage.

For those of you who do not know Captain Geir-Arne, my dear friend has been part of the Seabourn family for many years and has a great following through his photographic documentary of everything Seabourn.   You can see his website here:  Captain Geir-Arne's Photo Gallery

But don't let the Captain's happy-go-lucky exterior fool you.  He is a no nonsense type of guy, but he also has the full respect of the staff and crew...because he cares; and everyone one knows he cares about them as individuals.  (You will note how many photos he takes of his crew...so their families know that they are well and cared for.)

I look forward to hearing, and saying, "Welcome to yuuuurrrr Seabourn Quest."  (Those of you who have had the privilege sailing with Captain Geir-Arne know what I mean!
