During our time at sea, we conducted in-depth research to uncover the TOP FIVE ways in which Emmett Lee Dickinson influenced the cruising industry.
The TOP FIVE ways are as follows:
5. The inclusion of art galleries and art auctions on cruise ships. Information is HERE.
4. The insistence on round-the-clock nacho buffets on party ships. Information is HERE.
3. The innovation of the “Dickinson seat” (a fold-down aisle seat used in island cab-vans). Information is HERE.
2. The invention of the cocktail parasol and fruit garnishes. Information is HERE.
And the Number One way in which the work of Emmett Lee Dickinson impacted the cruise industry?
1. The creation of towel animals.
If you’ve ever been on a cruise, then you know that in the evening while you’re bidding on cruise art at an art auction or sampling new toppings at the nacho bar, the cabin stewards turn down all of the beds on the ship – and they just don’t leave mints on the pillows. No, they perform terry-cloth origami and create towel animals to greet you upon your return to your cabin.
So there you have it – the TOP FIVE ways that Emmett Lee Dickinson influenced the cruise industry. Had it not been for Dickinson, there would be no modern cruise industry as we know it. Instead, we’d all be filling our vacation time with a lot more bowling and corn hole.
