When a crew member remembers your name or goes out of the way, for you, it does make you feel special. Do you have a memory of a staff member just going the extra mile for you? Do you remember their name?Will you share the story?
Sometimes a pat on the back, does wonders......

Hi Trip, there have been so many! All of the bartender's in Princess' "Crooner's" martini bar are great. They remember everyone's name and what they like to drink (even if it's different depending on the time of day ).
Our Room Steward, Gibson, on the Island Princess Panama Canal cruise was wonderful. He always called us by name (Mr. David and Ms. Fern) and, if he was in the hallway and saw us coming to the cabin, he stopped what he was doing and opened the door for us. He kept us well supplied with ice, etc., and always asked if we needed anything at all, even if it wasn't in his department. He was just friendly enough-not too personal, not too cold.
He told me he'd been on the ship for years and loved his job-it showed !
"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour."
While we had the same treatment on our Princess cruises as Fern did on the Island Princess there are only 2 people whose names I remember, that was our waiter and assistant waiter on the Carnival Valor, Winston and Opec. They were great.
