Female captain takes the helm at Cunard

Cunard Lines recently made history by appointing their first female captain.  According to a press release by Cunard, and as reported in the Maritime Executive, Captain Inger Klein Olsen is the first woman to command a Cunard Line ship, the Queen Victoria.

Why do we think this is an important step?  Because the Queen Victoria is enrolled in Amver!

Congratulations Captain Olsen from your partners in safety at Amver!
