We, the crew of the Stad Amsterdam, like nothing more than to pamper our guests when they come on board. It’s just the same during our Spain program. With all our experience and with the resourcefulness of Ignacio (our client) we manage to do that quite successfully. Said Spaniard has been organizing these cruises in Spain for Randstad company ever since this ship sails the seas.
Since southern European are natural bon vivants, just a cookie with tea will not suffice as indulgent. That’s why every year we come up with a new way of spoiling the guests on board. Yesterday the ‘Pata negra’ was brought on deck; de leg of a black Iberian pig. The ham needs to be cut of the leg with a special method, so head chef Bart was asked to start the proceedings. Then the guests could cut their portion themselves and off course eat it too. More often than not the meat was marinated with some G&T, which is, I believe, not a Spanish tradition. But since yesterday, on board of this ship, it is.
