Michael Jordan meets fan on Oasis of the Seas

Date Posted: 21 Dec 2009
Category:
Oasis of the Seas has played host to basketball legend Michael Jordan as he made the dream of one girl in the Caribbean come true.

The former Chicago Bulls player used the world's largest cruise ship, which is operated by Royal Caribbean Cruises, as the base for his meeting with 15-year-old Monte'kia Jones, who suffers from chronic lung disease.

Meeting her in his capacity as chief ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Jordan and Ms Jones took photos and exchanged gifts onboard the vessel, which spends most of its time sailing the Caribbean.

According to wpbf.com, the teenager researched the charity and contacted it in the hope of meeting the star, although local volunteer Chris Kendall was pessimistic about it.

"She just happened to see the ship on television and said I'd love to do that and then we got the call that she could meet Michael Jordan on the ship," he told the website.

Oasis of the Seas was recently inaugurated with seven celebrity godmothers presiding over the festivities.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
