I admire Bob a LOT! And I agree he did many very very good things for the industry.
When CruiseMates first began , even though the site was small and just starting out, and we were doing our very first group cruise Bob agreed to make it a Bob Dickinson/CM group cruise.
And even though it was the small, baby steps, group cruise that led to our programs growth, Bob met with us for a private Q&A session, and dined with us in the evenings.... entertaining us with industry stories, and talking to us about the future of the industry, and the future of Carnival.
Though he was President of the world's most successful cruise line he took time from his schedule to spend a significant amount of time with the 20 or so of us in that group; very admirable.
