About Joyce Gleeson-Adamidis

Editor's note: This story is from the Cruise Critic Archives. Content was up to date at time of publication.

Joyce Gleeson-Adamidis, who pens Cruise Critic's original "At the Captain's Table" series of stories, knows the ins and outs of onboard life -- both as a cruise ship staff member and as the wife of Celebrity Cruises' venerable Captain Adamidis. In "At the Captain's Table," Joyce will tackle, in her own candid way, a variety of topics -- offering an absolutely behind the scenes perspective on issues ranging from advice for first timers to the burgeoning debate about challenges ships face in handling family travelers.

Joyce -- who's also written a book about cruise ship life, "If I Were Not Upon The Sea" -- has spent much of her last 25 years onboard. She's worn numerous name tags, ranging from social hostess and onboard lecturer to assistant cruise director and cruise director, before adding captain's wife to her list of titles. She's worked on a range of ships. Some only our nostalgic readers will recognize, such as Stella Solaris, Victoria, Romanza, Britanis and Celebrity's former Horizon and Zenith; others are top-of-mind today, Celebrity's Century, Galaxy, Mercury, Millennium and Infinity.
