Lovely to listen to your interview with Amanda Reid, a real ocean travel pro, and even a tv-star, as a main part of the BBC documentary series “The Cruise” in 1997 when she worked as the social hostess onboard Celebrity Cruises’ “Galaxy”, at the time the brand new flagship of the company.
In July 2000, during the maiden voyage of Celebrity Cruises’ new flagship, the “Millennium”, I had the pleasure to meet Amanda in Stockholm, as she had reposistioned to this ship.
It would be delightful to meet up with Amanda again on the seven seas
