Tim Bedwell –
Tim brought his wealth of knowledge in the food and beverage industry and his wonderful customer service skills to SpiritLine Cruises & Events in 2004 as the Executive Cruise Director, and now over-sees a staff of approximately 45 employees. On an average day he goes from the choreography of setting up a dining yacht for an event for 250 guests, supervising his staff, all who perform like a well-oiled machine, to making sure each detail of the event is picture perfect, then onto greeting the guests, making sure each person onboard has the best possible experience. “We are indeed fortunate to have such a hard-working, capable cruise director as one of our team members and you can rest assured that your event will be handled with the utmost care and quality with this gentleman in charge.” states Ian Harris – Director of Sales and Marketing.
