Shelly read my recent article about Captain Geir-Arne and emailed me about it. I asked her if I could share some of her thoughts and she enthusiastically said yes.
I am sure you will agree after reading them that absolute confidence in the training, experience and humanity that goes into being a Seabourn captain (and especially THIS Seabourn captain) is in order:
"The crew onboard the Quest that night were incredible people and...we are are still in touch - which is lovely as we shared such an experience that night.
I did smile reading a recent news article regarding the manoeuvrability of these new breed of cruise liners...[I]f only the reporter who had written this could have seen Captain GA and his team manoeuvre the Quest just a few feet to shield our little boat from the wind so that they could rescue us (without the wind blowing us further away) he may have eaten his words!
Shelley said Captain GA...and team. Something to think about...with a smile.
