The hosted dinner doesn't take place with families at home, but in historic locations. The photo shows some of the Vantage guests enjoying a typical dutch evening meal in the 'Oosterkerk' in Hoorn. Oosterkerk can be translated as 'East Church'. The oldest part of this church dates to the year 1519. It is located close to the port, and used to be a typical church for seamen and fishermen.
Every table has a hostess or host from the area, eager to chat with our passengers about live in the area of Hoorn or any other subject that may come up! After this successful event, everybody walked the short distance back to the port where the MS River Splendor was docked. Some passengers got home a little later, making a bit of a detour to reach the ship in order to see a bit more of Hoorn.
