“He was a marketing genius and talented showman, but those who knew him best recognized that he was a dreamer who was bigger and better able to dream than anyone else. It was often said, “The best thing for the people around him is the dream catcher.” That’s why he always acknowledges his success to the great teams around him, listens enthusiastically about creating innovative things that excite and delight guests, and is so much reminded of every day today. That’s why it’s important. We all continue to be his dream catchers. “
“Together, we are all one of something bigger than us, led by a man who has given us the tools to believe in us, learn, grow and realize our dreams. Became a club. For him, and thanks to him, we continue to have big dreams and realize his belief that true luxury is always the most enjoyable in the ocean.
