OCEANDIVA went all-out
with 15-year jubilee
On Friday, November 30, OCEANDIVA celebrated its 15th anniversary together with all national and international customers, partners, friends and former colleagues of OCEANDIVA over the past 15 years. A unique happening, because for the first time all fixed partners from The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium worked together to create an unforgettable evening for this milestone.
In 2003 CEO Edwin Petersen made the impossible possible. At a shipyard in Harlingen, a 133-meter-long cruise ship of East German manufacturer was cut in half and then converted into an event ship. This was the beginning of major events on the water, the beginning of OCEANDIVA. With two ships currently sailing in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and soon a third ship in London, the international event location continues to push boundaries and exceed expectations.

Now, 15 years later, OCEANDIVA is more successful than ever and it was time to celebrate this milestone with (inter)national customers, friends and partners. The theme was 'Friends around the world!’. The guests were welcomed festively in the centre of Amsterdam on the ship the OCEANDIVA FUTURA. CEO Edwin Petersen and Managing Director Mandy Berding opened the evening in a unique way including a fantastic film about then and now. The guests were then pampered during a cruise on the IJ with a luxurious 3-course dinner prepared by all the caterers from the three countries.
