We cruised with Erky on the Enchantment earlier this year. A very funny fellow! I sincerely wish him the best!

We've sailed with Erky twice. Our very first cruise a long time ago on Rhapsody and in 2008 on Voyager. I was wondering what ship he was on now!

I spoke to Erky several times on our Jewel cruise last month. He is leaving Jewel sometime in January, but I don't know when exactly. I was hoping he would still be there for the Sept. TA (Harwich to Boston). We just love Erky. He is sooo funny and always has time to talk with the passengers. Very sincere as well. Nice guy, for sure!

ps. ...to answer the other poster above...yes, he still has the HEH, HEH, HEH thing going.
