**New** Current list of Cruise Directors (CD)

Recommended Posts

OK - there have been some major changes to the list.

 

I need some help filling-in the following blanks:

 

Allure: Jerome's break begins next week. Who will be the next CD, and is Sept 4 the correct handover date?

 

Donna,

The Allure sets sail on Sundays so Jerome will be leaving Aug 30. He says on Twitter that the current cruise is his last on AL.

Jerome is going on vacation when this cruise ends, he is not going to return to Allure, but does not yet know which ship he will work on next, but he will keep working at RCCL.

 

Maybe on Oasis and Allure you do not need a CD, but I for one enjoyed him and his partner in crime Cuddy Cudworth very much when cruising on Allure in November 2014

 

I agree -- Jerome and Cuddy were quite a pair! I was impressed by how friendly they both were and as I was traveling solo it meant a lot that each took time to actually talk to me personally.

Joff Eaton just said on Twitter that Luke Aerowsmith will replace him on 15th September.

Yes, I had reached out to them on Twitter yesterday, and both of them responded to my tweets so promptly! Great guys!

We had Bobby Brown a few years ago.

For me, he was just OK. Not bad, but not outstanding.

For me, a CD has never taken anything away from a good cruise, but I have had some that really enhanced a cruise. (Leigh Xuereb, Mark Walker & Allen Brooks)

Majority of our CD's have been good to excellent, only twice that I can recall were we not pleased with our CD but it had no impact on our enjoying our cruise.

So, who will be on Anthem when it comes to the States?

 

It hasn't been announced yet. Maybe Luke will get the 4 month contract? Maybe Ken Rush will do the fill-in in before he is needed to roll out the next new ships? Maybe Joff will be back for a few months, because there are no ships in Europe from December through April? It's all a guessing game at this point.
