Apart from being a very good entertainer he is a team player which when working at sea is

Mel Harvey has just completed a contract on board the luxury Cruise Ship Silver Wind.
Mr Harvey has been a great success on board. Considering there was a strong mix of both American and British Guests on board, this is a tremendous achievement.
Guests loved his style of comedy interspersed with his very fine magic and illusion. Individually guests were quite charmed by his art of prestidigitation, which he presented at tables in the lounges, by the pool and at dinner.
Many commented on his warm and friendly disposition. Mr Harvey is a tremendous asset to Silversea Cruises and certainly is welcome back at any time.
