SeaDream In Monte CarloIN his continuing search for the more weird, wacky and wondrous in the world of travel, David Ellis was set this scenario by a magazine publisher who had recently sailed aboard boutique mega-motor-cruiser, SeaDream I in the Mediterranean.

She writes:

Picture this for the ultimate in guest relations: We’re sitting outside on deck at a beautifully arranged dining table on a balmy night between Portofino and Monte Carlo… fellow scribes from various points of Australia.

Captain joins us for dinner; we chat, eat, drink.

Wind blows one’s hair into one’s eyes/face/lipstick… I quietly push it back, unstick it from lipstick and continue eating.

Captain slips away from table and makes a quiet phone call.

By the time he returns the wind has stopped; my hair sits nicely in place. I ask him: “What did you just do – the wind’s stopped… do you have a direct line to ‘Upstairs?’”

Captain responds: “Oh no! I could see that your hair was bothering you, so I asked the Chief Officer to change direction slightly so you can enjoy your meal without your hair annoying you…”

Then he adds as an after-thought: “I must remember to tell him to get back on course when we finish dinner!”
