Captain J.K. Lieuwen, held the honor of being in command of the first worldcruise of the company. This was not a normal worldcruise but a student cruise around the world as a floating university. (See my article under Cruises of the past) on this web site.

 He died on 16 September 1967 aged 91 years old.
