I was on the Explorer last weeks and on the morning show Tim Connor (but I wasn't paying full attention) mentioned he will be departing in 13 days which makes it the end of the current sailing and having a 3 month break as his wife is expecting.

 

Update: Tim and Tam Connor have a new a baby boy named Theo. Congratulations!!!

Hello. Could anyone tell me about CD Bobby Brown? We are sailing on the Allure in early November and see that he may possibly be our cruise director

 

Thanks for any advice

Never have heard of Bobby Brown (CD) any input ??

 

Had him lots of times on the Radiance - prefer his wife, Becky but I'm pretty sure she has left Royal. She really is delightful.

 

Cheers

Di

I was a guest during Leigh's tenure on Indy (aug 30-sept 6 2015).

 

That guy is beyond hilarious. Best cruise director I've cruised with.

We have been on 11 cruises so far and have only had 1 cruise director that we didn't care for--Ken Rush. Just didn't think he had much personality and everything he did and said seemed to be rehearsed, not even a little spontaneous. Hope I didn't offend anyone who likes Ken, that was not my intention. My favorite CD's were Graham Seymour and Richard Spacey. Had Graham 3 times

Joff Eaton 2016

Ovation Mar - end May

Independence Early June - September 19

 

Exactly what I predicted!

Is he filling in on any ships over the holiday season or taking an extended break between two long contract? (6 months).

September - March would be an unusually long break. My guess is that he will do a 6-8 week fill-in on another ship to cover someone's break. Or, he may be reporting early to the shipyard or at corporate headquarters to prepare for taking out Ovation.

Missed Joff Eaton on the Indy, and family give him rave reviews. I've just booked on the Ovation, so now I am happy! :D
