The Mrs just reminded me of this, on a very recent cruise on one of the
cruiselines belonging to Carnival, we met our cabin attendant (who will
remain nameless) about 30 minutes after we boarded. So, the guy tries to
introduce himself, he kept stuttering his name..........HE WAS DRUNK!!!!
lol......His breath smelled of alcohol, his eyes were red AND watery. His
face was REDDER then red. Guess someone from the previous cruise must have
been missing some duty-free liquor. The Mrs & myself had a blast about
it, we could only imagine him being given a sobriety test or him walking
the plank! He would have fallen off from the side! As it turns out, this
was his last week working for the cruiseline, or so he told us. He turned
out to be a real good cabin attendant though and even though some days we
slept-in late and then had late afternoon naps, everytime we left the
cabin, sure enough we always returned to a clean cabin! So the last nite,
in addition to tipping him, I gave
the kid a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label. I think we really rubbed
it in for him, all 3 of us had a jolly good laugh about it.
Anyone have any experiences of this kind to narrate?
Happy cruising everyone
( We recently returned from the Carnival Spirit, no such
hilarious meet & greet this time around, although we did have the darn
icemaker back to back to our cabin to contend with!
, but that's
another tale to tell!
