I was impressed also by a bartender named Arnold and my cabin steward Romulo. A DJ named Ace was wonderful and a waiter named Cam (who I called John) in the golden Olympian restaurant was just a lot of fun to be around and made me look forward to coming to dinner. Jenn and Kevin the cruise director and assistant cruise directors were also wonderful and thanks to all I had the most wonderful vacation ever!
One day I heard that someone had gotten sick in the forward pool on the Lido deck. When it was brought to the attention of the staff of carnival, they immediately closed the swimming pool, drained it, and scrubbed it, literally for hours! I have never seen anyone do such a complete and thorough job of cleaning. They cleaned and scrubbed with scrub brushes, every square millimeter of that swimming pool from top to bottom and inside and out. They didn't moan or gripe about doing it, and did not refill the pool until they were satisfied that it was spotless! Trust me, I was impressed at how conscientious a job they did and how the senior staff made sure that it was done right. I didn't think they had to check the workers though, they did a wonderful job without the bosses looking over them.
At another point in the cruise I broke my eyeglasses. A customer service agent, Vivian, was unable to find a screwdriver to fit but she used another piece of thin metal, but told me that the screw was broken off in the glasses. Did she just say she was sorry and shrug? Nope! She found some super glue and fixed it for me!
Carnival? You should be proud of your people! I know I came away from that cruise knowing that my next cruise? MOST DEFINATELY CARNIVAL!!!!!
Thanks for making me feel alive again.
Wonderful and relaxing!
