Here's a brief example of what I can't describe any other way than "attitude".
We had just boarded Pearl in Seattle, and were being taken about the ship by a nice young lady who met us at the point where you get your glass of champagne.
As we were walking down the hall, we passed a ship's officer - a man with responsibility in housekeeping. My Dad is a real jokester on vacation and he's pretty funny sometimes.
The officer asked us if there was anything he could do for us. Dad said something about wanting a puppy delivered to his room. The officer said "no problem", took out his phone, and talked to someone.
Noticing that the officer was acting businesslike, Dad said he was just kidding. The officer said not to worry, that he would have his request taken care of.
When we got to the room, a towel animal in the form of a dog was waiting on Dad's bed.
That was a 100% class act, and I am surprised I just now remembered to share it with you.
The Pearl is the best ship I have ever sailed on. What more is there to say?
