How long do Captains serve each contract? Do I remember correctly that it is 10 weeks?

Correct, typically 10 weeks on and 10 weeks off, though the two Captains assigned to a ship can vary this slightlythrought mutual agreement.

Hi Michell,

 

If you plan to delete the old thread like the first one, it would probably be a good idea to say so, to give people a heads up that they need to go back and pull any information they might want to save.

Yes, I know that. But the first Captains thread was deleted. That is why I suggested that if you plan to delete the prior thread (that is currently closed), you should say so, to give people a chance to retrieve any useful information in that thread that they might want to keep.

A captain once told me the legalese terminology for "contract" is at least 8 weeks but no longer than 14 weeks.

We were on Voyager this past August, and Capt. Sindre told us he was going to Quantum for his next rotation.

What am I not getting here? Why do people care who the captain is? When I get on an airplane I don't care, why do we care as long as we don't end up dead or hurt?

Not exactly a comparable experience, however many people agree and don't care about the Captain. They (and you) are welcome to ignore this thread. I for one appreciate the work that Karen puts into this thread.

Very well said, as I also enjoy this thread and appreciate the work that Karen puts into it.

Because some people have preferences, or they just like to know.

 

Many times I don’t even know who they are, so a name is immaterial. If I’m going on Liberty, I’m hoping Captain James is onboard. He’s friendly and knows me on sight, and he will be visible onboard. If I’m on Vision (and soon to be on Radiance), Marek Slaby is unlike any captain we’ve ever had. He manages to be personable with every passenger and crew member on the ship. He sings in the Centrum at night. After having him as a Captain, yeah I want to know he’s onboard.

 

When I started cruising, it didn’t matter to me. Most of the time it still doesn’t. Captain Marek changed that.

 

If none of this resonates with you, I’d unsubscribe from the thread, since you are now subscribed because you posted here.

Agree.

 

Anyone who has sailed with Captain Johnny or some of the other Captains know that the sailing experience varies sometimes based on the Captain, Cruise Director, and other key staff.

If you are using the Tapatalk app, posting to a thread does indeed subscribe you. I’m not sure about those not using the app.

 

I, for one, appreciate the work you do here and think it’s great to be able to know who’s in command of your ship. Thank you!
