Dear friends,

Nancy and I truly enjoyed our time with you and your crew on the Merlijn!!  Everything exceeded our expectations. We are constantly recommending your cruises to our friends and neighbors. The Merlijn turned out to be our favorite home away from home. We hope that are paths may cross again.
