If you've never worked on a cruise ship, you don't know the bizarre nature of living your life "out at sea". The hours are constant (you're technically "on" 24/7), the ports of call are beautiful and the party never ends.
Abra spent two-and-a-half mostly glorious years with Carnival Cruise Lines. Once, while hosting a game of pool volleyball, she got pushed in the pool with all her clothes on. Understandably, this was an opportunity to be let's say, "displeased". However, she turned it into a laugh by joining the game she was shoved into without missing a beat. It worked so well it became a scheduled (staged) event that always pleased the crowd.
Abra loved working at sea. And she was very good at it. So good, in fact, that she moved up from Kid Counselor to Assistant Cruise Director faster than a sunburn sets on a pasty passenger from Pennsylvania.
Great as the gig was, her sea legs only lasted so long. She yearned for more and thought she found it back in Minnesota where she worked for a large Jewish Non-Profit, working on fundraising and event planning. As fate would have it, the ships called again. They wanted her back. And this time it was for a World Cruise. Properly teased, she said yes. Two days before boarding, they called to say her world would now be only in the Caribbean. Nothing against the Caribbean, but that ship had already sailed for her.
With no job and nothing to lose, she packed up (what little she had) and headed west. It didn't take her long to land in Marina, where she now works with the Jewish Community Federation in The City.
With her incredible people and party skills, her fit with Denon & Doyle is hand in glove. We just hope one of those ships in the Marina doesn't need a pool games specialist any time soon.
