  • Day133

    Southampton, UK

    October 19, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    One final Standing Orders lunch with Jackson. Followed by some very much needed shopping before the long trans-Atlantic crossing to the Caribbean. One of the benefits of being assistant manager with our new manager Harry is he just gives me a list of things to do and doesn’t care when i do it. So I worked in the morning so I could get off in the afternoon with Jackson when he finished work.Read more

    Southampton, Southampton

    July 2, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    At Standing Order with Jackson grabbing some brunch. He starts at 12:30 so we don't have a lot of time before we have to be back to the ship. Today we are docked with Azura and Arcadia so I got to see my next ship for the first time. Walking around Southampton with Jackson today is like being at home walking around with my Mom. Always being stopped because he has to talk to people he knows from the other two ships. People keep coming up to our table as well who recognize him. There are some people I know on Azura I tried to meet up with as well but with people's work schedules it didn't work out.

    Next we are headed to pound land (basically a dollar store) to get some snacks to take back to the ship. Then back to the ship for Jackson to start work and for me to sleep. I started work at 7:30 this morning, opening up the gallery so people who forgot to get their photos can pick them up before they leave the ship.

    Southampton, UK

    August 4, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    The last 3 days definitely have not gone as planned. Yesterday was our photomania (last day of the cruise where it’s super busy with everyone wanting their photos that they had all cruise to pick up). This however was a particularly crazy photomania. So crazy we had a line all the way through our gallery and the bar beside us. To the point where we had to recruit some help. The shops came to our aid, we had the reception manager and even the hotel auditor came and helped. We got there in the end but there was a lot of confusion and people all over the place along the way.
    Then the day before that we had to turn the ship around and make an unscheduled stop in Vigo. We had a sick passenger who needed immediate medical attention. Which meant that today we docked late.
    Jackson and I had made plans to go out together again today but as usual our plans had to change. I worked later then we normally do on turnaround days because of the late docking. Then I got to experience something a little different. The Seaman from Pakistan who died during the cruise was being sent home today. They were bringing him off the ship and wanted it filmed for his family. All the seaman and officers lined the quayside as he was escorted off followed by prayers from his fellow seaman. I tried my best to film everything for his family without being to intrusive well his friends said goodbye. I hope the video gives them some comfort in knowing he was well cared for.

    The party cruise finally ends and the Standing Orders tradition continues. That is where Jackson and I are currently sitting after just finishing lunch. He’s on the phone with his mom and his sister’s fiancé because his sister backed Jackson’s car into a pole this morning. She’s fine but his car has a large dent in the back.
    After this we are just headed back to the ship because Jackson has work at 3pm. I also have to take my new cabinmate who just joined today to training at 3:30pm.

    Worked in the morning but now off the ship with Jackson for our tradition of going to Standing Orders for brunch. This time we are having to head back for 12:00 though because Jackson is IPM in the afternoon. I then am meeting some people from our head office with my manager and then in the gallery for the evening.Read more
