New Techspert on the ms Maasdam

10 Mar

Hello, my name is Chris Jackson. I am the new Techspert onboard the ms Maasdam. I boarded on February 19, 2010 and replaced Techspert Will Stockert, which means I have big shoes to fill. Thanks Will for the great job onboard the ms Maasdam! Also, thanks to all of the past participants who enjoyed Will’s classes. Will is going to continue his career with the Digital Workshop as a Travelling Trainer helping all us Techperts…Techspert!

I have been teaching in the Digital Workshop since May 15, 2009. I really enjoy what I do and love that the Digital Workshop provides complementary classes, for all skill levels onboard Holland America’s cruise ships.Even better yet the complimentary classes teach free Microsoft Windows Live software that allows you to do what you want to do on your computer!!! You can learn anything from organizing, editing, stitching, or sharing your photographs to computer maintenance, website development, Windows 7,  and making movies. There is something for everyone inside the Digital Workshop!

I look forward to seeing you inside the Digital Workshop onboard the Maasdam during your upcoming Panama Canal or New England Cruise!

    Hi Chris! Good to see that you\’re established on your new ship. We travelled on the Maasdam – St Lawrence River Cruise. I was on the New Year\’s cruise on the Westerdam in January – that\’s where I met you. I\’m having trouble downloading the course documents from the webpage I made that week. Please send me an email at or so I can explain. Thanks. How\’s your wife? Enjoy the Maasdam! Becky DeWitt
