Spend time talking to the crew of any ship, and you’ll quickly learn that the connections they share with one another are incredibly strong. As passengers, we often bond with our favorite bartenders or room stewards, but there is an entire community of employees working behind the scenes whom we never actually see, let alone get to know. The same, however, is not true for their fellow crew members. Ships are like floating cities, and while we may vacation in them, the crew make up the residents. And so, when one of their own passes away, it is felt by many.
