Default New Job - Cruise Packer

on the RCI site someone was talking about the challenges of waiting until the last minute to pack. many of us sympathized with her situation

I think this situation can sprawn a new job for someone..professional cruise packer where they come to your home the night before, pack everything for you while you sit and relax listening to Jimmy Buffett...then returns to your house the night you return from your cruise, unpacks, does your laundry, process your pictures and place in a photo album and prepares and serves your first night home dinner

how much do you think a person should charge for that type of service ?

Default Re: New Job - Cruise Packer

Well, a few years ago, my DH became very ill on HAL's Maasdam. We had to abort the cruise in Stockholm. I sat looking at six pieces of luggage which all needed to be packed up pronto. I felt overwhelmed as well as disappointed. About then a Maasdam staffer knocked on the door. She offered to help pack. It was done professionally and quickly. HAL's ramp agent saw to it that the bags were stored while my DH and I spent the day in an emergecy room in a Swedish hospital whose name I still cannot pronounce. This agent also found us a hotel and recommended restuarants as my husband got better. About three days later, we flew home.

So we sort had the services you speak of. I never forgot these thoughtful and efficient people.
