Bad news to many of us...Tony Lockett has gone from NCL!! I just heard that Tony who was one of the finest NCL F&B directors LEFT in the fleet was told as he left for vacation (the very morning) that his contract was not renewed! Many of we cruisers have had amazing experiences with Tony and make NCL their cruise line of choice because of Tony and the wonderful people he has trained (and who think VERY highly of him). I hope NCL reads this post and that others who know Tony will add their feelings about this. In this economic time, what a horrible way to let a 55 year old LOYAL and LOVED employee go. On almost any ship in the NCL fleet, you can ask any server (and somehow the housekeeping staff knows him as well) will say "Oh yes, 'Mr. Tony'! He is a nice man! If we ever have a problem, Mr. Tony will try to help us." Is this how NCL handles its employees as they grow old and sadly have health issues (Tony had a heart problem but was cleared by his physician)? My husband and I have spent close to $100,000 over the years of cruising with them and our money will NEVER be spent on another NCL ship unless something very good happens for Tony Lockett.
