Entry 6 GGA Cunard Service
I will be looking forward to more of the same fabulous quality I have learned in my on line training with Cunard line. We are part of the emergency drill with life jackets in the dining room. Then back to our rooms to partake of that sparkling gift as we dress for dinner.
Our bags arrive and Penny comments a few times on how impressed she is with how little luggage I have! Once again I am grateful for having had the time and courage to downsize. It is a new packing exercise for me and I feel I have graduated to the next level. Well done, me!
We meet our new dinner mates in a large oval table in the window. A table for 10 is delightfully prepared and we meet the waiter and m’aitre d who will look after all of my special dietary needs and more. One couple are residents of Texas and I am delighted to swap stories of cruises past and future. They are also dancers and are on the search for the best wooden dance floor. Later in the evening we take a moment to stop and watch their expertise and flowing movements as they spin and glide in graceful beauty.
Penny talks more to a couple celebrating 52 years of marriage. Our waiter and several more join in singing ‘let me call you sweetheart’ as the couple hold hands. Not a dry eye in the house. What a lovely experience to behold. Note to self, always have a special celebration party organized for people who book their vacations with me. Such a value added service of emotion and thoughtfulness. I am moved by the scene!
