Who is who on board: Part Three

There are many hundreds of crew on board responsible for creating your cruise experience. Some you come across every day and others you may never see as they drive operations behind the scenes. Three of the most visible ones on every ship are:

Excursion Manager

The Excursion Manager is responsible for the promotion, bookings and delivery of the port-excursion program. They are a valuable source of information about the best things to do in port, as they see all the ratings and comments left by previous guests and have usually visited the destination often.

Future Sales Manager

The Future Sales Manager is responsible for promoting and taking bookings for future cruises with the cruise line. They will usually be able to offer extra discounts or benefits than if you book once back home. They can also give good advice and tips on popular routes, ships and cabins.

Restaurant Maîitre d’

The Maître d’s are responsible for managing the restaurants. They manage the table seating and the service from the waiting staff. They will be the person to discuss any dietary issues, special requirements and if you want to be allocated another table.

I grew up in Zimbabwe, but I have been based in London since 1987. My travel life spans more than three decades and that includes more than 95 cruises. In 2005, I launched Tips for Travellers to make it easy and fun for people to discover, plan and enjoy incredible cruise vacations. And the rest, as they say, is history. I have the largest cruise vlogger channel currently on YouTube, with more than 2 million video views per month.
