Default Social Hostess

When we sailed sometime ago and were on Century, Mercury,Galaxy there was a gal named Amanda Reid and was wondering if she is still with Celebrity and if so what ship she is now on.

Thanks

From one of the boards I read a while back, seems that she has left Celebrity, something about adding to the work load but no extra compensation. Sorry I can't remember which thread I read it on, either on here or Crusise Critics.

The social hotess on Galaxy right now is Gina Cooper.

Have met her in the last few days and a wonderful person.

From the Galaxy. Y2C

Amanda left Celebrity this past summer.

She is now with Silversea.

We agree, Amanda always went the extra mile for us and from what I have heard for everyone. She made you feel special. Bless her where ever she is now.

I was on Summit only few weeks ago, never saw or heard of "Social Hostess"

Where can she be found on the ship (any ships that is ) and what does she do for passengers?

Would appreciate any info as I have two more Celebrity cruises booked for 2004

Evelyn, the social hostess on Celebrity was like an Assistant Cruise Director. She handled the on-board public relations between passengers and crew. A lady who could take care of most requests. Amanda was the Queen. You would find her from one end of the ship to the other. She would be the "trainer" for those who followed in her footsteps. When a new cruise ship set sail, she would be on board and at the port to see that everything ran as smooth as possible. When a wedding was planned, she would make sure every detail was perfect. At the Captain's Welcome aboard party, she would introduce each guest to the Captain, etc. A true fine lady and Hostess. She and the position will be surely missed.

I always found Amanda to be very charming especially with her being British..what a Lady. One could almost say that Miss Amanda was sort of like the God Mother of Celebrity.

The last time we sailed on Celebrity was the Mercury when the ship first came out and what a wonderful cruise it was and Amanda was on the ship and what a great crew we had especially those woked the desk right near the purser's office. One night we were there speaking with Amanda and some of the other's and never saw such a group of people so relaxed and enjoying their job and having "fun",rather than being stuffy like they could be at other times.

Thank you for your replies, obviously I did not look in the right place, never thought of Asst Cruise Director.

Look forward to enjoying 2004, when I will take Infinity in May and Constellation in Sept.

The social hostess is NOT an assistant cruise director. She is not part of the CD's staff at all.

The Social Hostess reports to the Hotel Manager.. so she comes under the Guest Relations department. She also acts as the Captain's hostess onboard.

When there is a medical emergency any time day OR night, the social hostess is the one person who is always called to the scene, to comfort family members and make any necessary arrangements.

The social hostess is also the group liason onboard the ship.
