Busy Busy Busy Week thanks to the Redoubt Volcano

It has been SUCH a busy week due to all the flights being canceled that I must admit I have been a bit lazy about going out and about this week.

It is rather disheartning to see all the guests head to the airport each morning all excited to be going home, and then return in the afternoon, exhausted from just waiting around all day and going nowhere. I like the amount of Revenue this is generating, but the Hospitality Professional in me just wants to make the guest happy and that will not be happening till they head home.

Anyway though, I just wanted to check in and say HI to everyone! Hopefully The CORNELIA MARIE will be in on Saturday unloading the last of their Quota at Unisea and I will be able to "Follow That Crab!" once again!

Pictures are not Uploading right now so I will just have to say Goodnight!!

I am so glad you posted, I was about to reach for my phone! I am sure the stranded are grateful for your care and attention. That should make the toil easier! Hang in there, PA is in your future!

Hopefully the planes will be able to fly soon. I am hoping a nice wind will blow the ash away. I know you make those returning stranded guest feel less frustrated when they get to your hotels with your good attention.

Very frustrating all around. We know you are making the guests feel as comfortable as possible. HUGS

At least they have you and your crew there to take good care of them. With the food I've seen I'm thinking I might try to get stuck there for a bit. But do you have a gym? :)

Gotta venture over to the Unalaska side for the public gym :) it's got everything, even an indoor track! There is a pool with sauna, slide and more cardio machines across the street!

Kim said...

OMW CD! Our gym is pathetic compared to that. Hoping you guys start getting planes in and out soon! did you get my email CB?

Darryl indicated that one plane came in to Akutan on Tuesday, so here's hoping you guys get a plane soon......or even out soon! I know you and your staff will try and make everyone as comfortable as possible and feed them good too! Understand why you're so busy right now. Enjoy your birthday and to share it with "Seward Day"! Yeah!

why is it good to be #13???

Janice said...

Just to piss CB off! Who pays for the hotel rooms when the crew gets stranded? The ship or is the crew member responsible for his own lodging?

cookie dough said...

ohh no....can't get CB upset it's his birthday week and the museum thingy is tonight!!

Did you get Alena! to agree to come???

Carlisleboy said...

I Believe I did CD!!!

As to who pays it is different all around. Soe pay on their own (Which are the people that usually try for the Unisea Inn. Mos tof the companies seem o be pretty good abot paying though, even providing meal allowances, just no booze!!

Carlisleboy said...

Oh, and Little Sis.........Payback is Coming!!!!
