The cruises are over, it’s now time for editing and a whole lot of thank you’s. Let me start with my fantastic crew. Patrick Keeley, my husband, partner and Executive Producer who not only is the inspiration behind this entire show and my number one fan but worked tirelessly and continuously to plan each day of shooting at every location and did an amazing job. Johnny Tsang, Director extraordinaire. His vision and expertise is something to really admire. I can not wait for the finished product. To the camera team, Kevin Provost and Frank Angelcyk. Kevin who is calm, cool and collected in every situation and Frank, who is our daredevil. You guys really are the best!

I have to thank Holland America Lines for having us on board their 2 beautiful ships the MS Eurodam and MS Veendam. Thanks to our champion, Erik Elvejord who has been working with us from the start to make this all happen and for his assistance on board the Eurodam and to Jocelyn Wu, who is always available and handled every thing and is just a lovely person who was fun to be with on the Veendam. To everyone who helped us on the ships from the spa/hairdresser services (Rhonda, Kelly, Sarah, Peter, Emma, Brigitte), the chefs, the kitchen staff, the servers, the bartenders .. on and on the list goes.

Special thanks to our wonderful friends Sarah Sporn and Brian Koslow who made the Baltic cruise extra special.

In each destination, we had guides, helpers, drivers, the chefs, restaurants, market people, shop owners and more that were simply incredible.
