On the October 23rd sailing of the Allure, the CD will be Allan Brooks. Not sure when he starts his rotation.

Does anyone know if Kieron Buffrey and Joff Eaton are still at RCL.
We enjoyed both of them as CD's on Radiance and Jewell, respectively.

And out of curiosity does any one know how often they change CD's and
how often the CD's change ships?
Kieron Buffery was on the Mariner on our Sept 8 2011 sailing. Great performer and real people person. Not sure about Joff, but hopefully he's still with RCL. He had activities and entertainment that no one else ever offered. We were lucky to have him on our Sept 2009 TA crossing on the Jewel.

Dennis Charles should be on Adventure of the Seas for the November 7 crossing. I don't know if he is joining prior to that but he's not on board at the moment.

Amy was CD on Oasis from September 3rd until the 16th. Then she apparently left the ship and Richard Spacey came back. He will be there for the next six or seven weeks. I got this info from the Crown and Anchor phone line person. She had to track down the info by instant messaging the Oasis on their internal messaging system! The CD list that the regular RCI people, and the chat people have is not updated with these latest developments.

Thanks for responding to my question.
We were on that TA as well and thought Joff Eaton was a wonderful CD. I know he was on Independence for awhile. He and his sidekick were really funny on their morning show.
I still don't see either name on the list that is accumulating. I hope they are still with RC.

We had Amy as our CD on the Sept. 3rd Oasis sailing. She was "ok" I guess. Funny, but nothing special. I think she needs to be a little more hyper or something. But she definitely wasn't the worst CD that I ever had.

John Blair came on Enchantment in July. Jimmy Rhodes hasn't been on Enchantment at least since November. Its either been John Blair or Carley Boulieu.
