This past vacation was my 8th cruise. EIGHT. We’ve always had a good time. The second cruise we went on we had a fantastic cruise director. Every cruise since then has fallen short in that area. Until this one! I could not get over how involved he was with everything. He was out on the pool deck every day hanging out with the passengers. He was wandering around the public areas of the ship carrying a “free hug” card and interacting with everyone. He was at the shows in the evening to welcome everyone to the shows and to play little games. He was just awesome!
This picture was from early on. He would drag people up on stage and play strange games. In this particular photo he was demonstrating how we all talk with our hands. He was determined to not talk with his hands so he called this guy up from the audience to be his hands. Whenever I see a picture of our cruise director I just smile. I’d have enjoyed my cruise no matter what, but he was the exclamation point of the week.
