The sailors led Alannah to the bridge where she was introduced to the ship's Captain, a retired Naval Officer from Ireland, by the name of Jack O'Malley. Alannah was a little anxious to be on this ship, she was worried that Captain Jack might know her father and place a call to him, but he did not seem to recognize her, which for once Alannah was grateful. Jack looked at Alannah and her carpetbag with amusement, Alannah once tidy appearance was now bedraggled from her mad dash and final leap onto the ship.

"Well little lady you have caused quite a stir on board my vessel. I take it that you couldn't make the ship on time, 'eh? I hope you weren't planning on taking this ship all the way to America. We are not large enough, nor sturdy enough to make a trans-Atlantic journey. We will be heading for our larger port in Amsterdam, where we are to meet up with the SS Europa. I hope that you have the money to pay for your voyage," he told her. "Otherwise you will find yourself working amongst my crew."

"Based on the information I was given on your departure time, I thought that I had more time than I did that's all. I have already purchased my ticket sir, but for the short journey from here to Amsterdam, I would like to be useful." Alannah told him in her best English."
