I was the Protestant Chaplain on board, but was not paid, which is just fine. It is a courtesy service provided by the cruise line to those of its passengers who are interested, and my services were donated. However, a good number of people came to daily devotional services and expressed gratitude for having this service provided Holland-America. I say all this to make clear that I was, in a way, adjunct staff and might be accused of prejudice. Not so -- this is an honest report -- my wife and I LOVED the cruise, the ship, the ambiance, the care, the food, and especially the wonderful crew.
