UPDATED List of Current Cruise Directors (CD)

Recommended Posts

Can someone cruising on the Rhapsody ask Graham Seymour if he is coming downunder with the ship or going elsewhere when the Alaska season is over?

Thanks.

Regards Elaine.

Just found out I'll be on the Brilliance in September. Apparently Steve Davis is the CD ... I've never heard of him at all. Any comments? Is he good?

Hi, he was the assistant CD on our Mariner cruise last year and left it as he had been promoted to CD, yes, he was very good as Asst CD and can only improve, he was quite popular. Happy Cruising.

Do you guys think Casey will go back to Serenade after Ricky ends in Sept? We're cruising on Serenade in October and just wondering who we might get.

Can anyone tell me if Clo O'Connor going off Adventure is a permanent thing or just for a break please?

 

I am going on AOTS next year and have had Clo on two cruises already and would be happy to avoid a third occasion :o

Why is it mean? I am just saying that I would prefer a different CD. Not mean....just a fact.

 

I have been on four cruises and she was on my first two cruises so I didn't know any better but since having Ken Rush and Joff Eaton I now know how good they were and it would be really good if there was someone different rather than Clo.

 

Have you cruised with her and if so, what did you think?

Still no word on Rich Edwards and the Liberty? We are sailing on July 21st, which is right in his 4-month contract window... My spidey-sense says we will be cruising right at CD change-over. If Rich happens to still be the Liberty CD, does anyone have thoughts/feedback on his abilities?

He is wonderful - very talented - sings and dances, is very friendly. We had a great time with him this past April on the transatlantic.

Do you guys think Casey will go back to Serenade after Ricky ends in Sept? We're cruising on Serenade in October and just wondering who we might get.

 

I don't know. Both Casey and Ricky are on social media, so maybe you (or someone else) can contact them and ask. Or, you can post on the roll call for an upcoming Serenade cruise and ask if someone can find out directly from Casey if he expects to return to the ship after his break.

 

Still no word on Rich Edwards and the Liberty? We are sailing on July 21st, which is right in his 4-month contract window... My spidey-sense says we will be cruising right at CD change-over. If Rich happens to still be the Liberty CD, does anyone have thoughts/feedback on his abilities?

 

Have you tried contacting Rich via social media, or asking on the Liberty roll call for an upcoming sailing for someone to find out directly from Rich when his break starts, and who the next CD will be?

 

Can anyone tell me if Clo O'Connor going off Adventure is a permanent thing or just for a break please?

 

This appears to be just a fill-in contract for Clo, and she hasn't been in the regular rotation schedule for a while. But, the only way to find out for sure is to contact her via social media (if she active on social media), or to ask someone who is traveling on Adventure to find out directly from Clo.

I haven't cruised with her and I'm not a hugely experienced cruiser at all, but I HATE when people call out staff members by name on the internet.

 

Having worked in the service industry, customer satisfaction is everything, and no doubt that her superiors will see this and give Clo a major kick up the arse.

 

 

So I will write a bogus compliment to RCI to save Clo's bacon :D

If you chat about any staff by name on this site and ESPECIALLY this thread - just be aware that someone out there will probably print screen or forward the comment to the person named (if they're not reading it themselves). No, really.

 

:D

So Clo will be looking for a Hairymelon when she cruises!!! Priceless :D

 

In fact, I didn't really say anything majorly negative just that I would like to experience other CDs, don't see this as a bad thing :)

Please, everyone, let's not hijack this thread with bickering. Brief comments about a particular CD, whether positive or negative, are welcome here, as long as they are constructive and not a personal attack. (There's a particular CD that I do not care for, and I've expressed that opinion here too.)

 

Now, back on topic to the list.....

 

Does anyone have any updates for us?
