This is an image from 2016 taken at one of several of Kjell's retirement parties aboard Freedom of the Seas. He retired in November after nearly 32 years with Royal Caribbean International. Kjell is on the left (admittedly looking concerned about the character in the center) and our friend Captain Toni on the right.
The entire post with many more images of this event is here. It's so much fun to see them all again!
I have a Halloween "funny" to share with you, too.
In the image above Kjell is wearing his dress white formal uniform. One year Halloween night happened to also be a formal night on board. As we stepped into an elevator on the way to the main dining room to host guests at his table, a lady in the elevator asked Kjell, "Do you work here or is that your Halloween costume?" Kjell answered politely, of course, but the best answer would have been, "Both."
Happy Halloween 2023! We hope yours is safe and happy.
All the very best,
