But gracious customer service and attention is his specialty, and in the Sales Department he shines. Gently guiding his clients through every step of the private charter and event creation process, Peter crafts amazing experiences, from the AHOY of a new lead all the way through the BON VOYAGE of a finished event.
What is your favorite Argosy cruise?
The Locks is my favorite. Our little mini Panama Canal.
What makes Argosy such a unique place to work?
Our culture -- we sell fun, and we have fun doing it.
What other Argosy department would you job shadow for a day?
I've done almost everything here -- Guest Services, Front Desk, Maintenance...I guess it would have to be Marketing. Or Accounting. [shudders]
What is your favorite Seattle waterfront stop (besides us)?
The Olympic Sculpture Park and Myrtle Edwards Park. I like to go there for inspiration.
What is your favorite thing to do in town when you are not working?
Happy Hour, with food!
What is your favorite component of our cruises?
We have the best crew, who are the most fun. They really make the event for our customers.
If you could charter one of our boats, which one would it be, where would you cruise, and what would you do?
I'd do casino games on the first deck, and a DJ upstairs on the Lady Mary. Food would be tray-passed hors d'ourvres and a buffet station, because this is a PARTY and not a sit-down banquet. And I'd have us cruising in the Duwamish River at night. It is like being on another planet when it is lit up.
