The “Charleston Cruise Team” recently won Carnival Cruise Lines’ “Staff of the Year Award” for North America. In a ceremony hosted by representatives of Carnival Cruise Lines, Cruise Team Members from the Port of Charleston were presented a glass plaque honoring the team’s efforts.
The categories on which ports were judged were “Friendliness & Hospitality,” “Service Embarkation” and “Overall Experience.” Charleston’s Port was pitted against 11 other ports for the prize and the competition was scored using guest feedback ratings.
