While all the members of a cruise ship crew work hard to assure that passengers experience a wonderful vacation, one crew member in particular is essential to a fine cruise experience – your cabin steward. Your cabin steward is responsible for cleaning your cabin each day and ensuring that it has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

In the last few weeks of his life, I asked him where he wished he could visit one more time before embarking on his next journey. Without missing a beat, he responded Holland.
