I recently sailed the inside passage
on a wonderful ship The Taku,
And I want to take a few moments
to tell you about, some of her crew.
First there is Maggie the purser
who saw to our needs all the while,
She likes to cycle when she has time
some chocolate sure makes that girl smile.
Ludy is a busy Chief Steward
he has many things he must do,
He pays attention to the details
as we enjoyed the ride and the view.
The cashier Dan is a seasonal guy
who would like to work the whole year
In the winter he likes to snowboard
he was friendly and smiling, full of good cheer.
Ron makes spectacular salads
to enjoy as we sailed on our way,
We chatted each morning after my walk
he had to work while I got to play.
Manuel, Florintino & Enrique
served entre's that were first rate,
I had to walk some extra laps
to burn up the portions they put on my plate.
Security was handled by a man named Dave
to keep the ship safe and secure
Prevention is the key to success in his job
this keeps him on his toes for sure.
Kathy I learned was new to the ship
like others she wears more than one hat,
She really likes running the gift shop
and she always had time for a chat.
There are many unmentioned who run the show
sincerely I take my hat off to you,
This was my first cruise, one I'll never forget
you are all important parts of an amazing crew.
Sailed Juneau to Prince Rupert round-trip June 19-23
