NCL Ambassador member "Mr. Happy" update

Recommended Posts

If anyone has had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Happy on a Norwegian cruise, you probably haven't forgotten him. Mr. Happy's positive outlook on life and and friendly persona had quite an impact on my husband and me when we met him aboard the Norwegian Pearl on an Alaska sailing in September of 2018 and we stayed in touch with him after the cruise. He's been unwell and hospitalized and has finally been allowed to go home. BUT, his doctor told him his travels are over.

 

It makes me sad because I know how much it meant to him to travel and meet new friends and to view NCL crew as his extended family. So, in honor of Mr. Happy, I'll remind you all that you should make the best of every day and be good to each other!

Beautiful sentiment:classic_smile:  So sorry to hear about Mr. Happy.  You and your husband are wonderful people to stay in contact with him.  Thank you for sharing!

We were on the transpacific this past May and he took quite a spill in Moderno, being used for the Haven breakfast/lunch dining room. He seemed to bounce back pretty well at the time, but it was a hard fall.

I knew that was going to be his next cruise after the Alaska one, of course he didn't mention falling, just said it was amazing. He had a cruise coming up with his daughter that he's had to cancel. He said it's heart issues that have gotten his travel curtailed.

We love Mr Happy!  Haven’t crossed paths with him in several years & have often wondered how he was. Thanks so much for the update!

What a beautiful sentiment. We met Mr Happy on one of our cruises can't remember what year exactly. He gave us 2 happy face key rings, one yellow and one pink, I still have them. We were talking about him a while ago and were wondering how he was, Thank you for the update and blessings to him.

 

You guys look familiar too :-)......

I guess I didn't notice that Cruise Critic killed off the message signatures where you could see the cruises people had been on to cross reference whether we've sailed together.  We've sailed:

9/3/2000    Alaska    Norwegian Sky
9/1/2001    Hawaii    Norwegian Star
10/20/2004    Mexican Riviera    Norwegian Star
9/13/2015    Alaska    Norwegian Pearl
9/16/2018    Alaska    Norwegian Pearl
1/23/2020    Australia/New Zealand    Norwegian Jewel

Hi!  I am Mr. Happy's daughter and I will let him know about this thread.  He will be so pleased to discover that people remember him fondly. He has had a rough few months but he is well on the road to recovery. He and I have been traveling companions since my husband and mother have both passed and I am happy to report that he is now talking about booking another cruise!

Hi Carol! Oh, what great news that you're planning a trip!!! He mentioned it, but then I thought maybe he wasn't going to be able to go.  I was so sad when he told us he wasn't allowed to travel!
