Thumbs up Thank you Carnival Crewmembers

I know that there are some crew members that check these boards and I would like to thank them for everything they do to make our vacations that much better. I have seen several shows on the Travel Channel on the behind the scenes of the cruise ships, this make me just want to give a SHOUT OUT to all the crew members. A special thank you to these crew member that made our trip on the Glory that much special!

Great idea...we have allways had great crew members....especially when we traveled with our kids..everyone went above and beyond what they needed to. My kids now remember their first cruise with fondness.

I had to join in on this one. Even though I thanked them in my review, thanks again to the entire crew of the Imagination for making my first cruise a great time. Even to the Captain who officiated at the wedding I attending. He was very approachable and enjoyed talking to everyone and taking pictures. His favorite line was, everyone ask who's steering the ship if he's always out and about, a social buttlerfly.

We thank you for all of your hard work and all of you have such a big, nice smile each day.

I hope that this tread ends up with more people thanking all the crew members then the treads about the topless deck!

Default You guys are wonderful!

One of our favorite things about cruising is to meet and talk to the crew. It is always so interesting and touching to hear about their families, lives and jobs. On our trip on the Liberty the week of Thanksgiving, we talked to a bartender at the Casino bar. She and her husband who are Phillipino have a 6 month old back at home with her parents. They are both on the Liberty and will not have vacation until next year. She calls her baby everynight and cries. This is just a typical story of a Carnival Crew member. Although I alwyas enjoy the entertainment staff, the behind the scenes stewards, cooks, bartenders, etc are amazing to me!

From paint scrapers all the way to El Capitan..Boys n girls who work soooo verrrry hard to please allll of us, as most will be working while we celebrate all our friends and family, and their family, if they are not with them, will share our cruise family. I'm sure I speak for all Holiday-ers, as well as intire CCL fleet.

I have sailed 12 times with Carnival. I have to agree completely that all of the crew members are tops. I am amazed at the long hours you have to work, being away from your famalies, and yet you are still able to do your job with a smile on your face. I have taken the time to thank everyone that I encounter, including some crew members stripping paint off a railing on Celebration. You all do a fabuous job and I am thankful for the great service you provide to make my vacation such a wonderful experience.

Your hard work and dedication is truly appreciated.
