Hi Tom

As a new guy not quite sure of the way things should happen I submitted it first to Cruise Reviews before noticing other reviews on CruiseChat, so it is already in the system somewhere.

By the way I forgot to mention Hunky Dory. He is one of the waiters on the Lido Buffet usually meeting people on the starboard side of the ship and handing you a tray with cutlery, etc. On the first occasion he sees you he asks you your name. He must have a prodigous memory because after that each day he greets you by name! Rarely does he get names wrong. I asked him how he came to be called Hunky Dory and he pointed to his name badge which shows his middle initials as H.D. The rest was an unpronouncable (to me) Filipino or Indonesean name, so I was happy to settle for Hunky Dory. His happy smiling face and personal greeting every day is one of those memories that will stick with us forever. Well Done HAL.
