Any recent cruisers that can report on current staff? Particularly interested in hearing who might be General Manager, F&B, Maitre 'D, Dining Room Manager, Executive Chef, and Cruise Director.

thanks,

Marc

I will try to look up the information as of the 7/30 cruise I just was on. However, that is no guarantee that those people will still be on board when you cruise.

OK, here is what I have
Captain: Dag
Dining Room Manager: Luis Teixeira
Chef: Cornell Ruhland
General Manager: Anelo Balbi
Cruise Director: Ray Solaire
Staff Captain: Fulvio Calandro
Social Hostess: Nicola
Asst. cruise director: Elda Pauluzzi
Cruise consultant: Gudren Werner
As I mentioned before: I cannot guarantee that there will not be staff changes. This was the 7/31 Baltic cruise.
Hope it helps

Gee, I wonder if that means that Cornell won't be on for the Discovery Collection. We're on the last leg, Rio to FLL and would love it if he was on.

Really curious who Cornell is. I'm happy to see Ray Solaire on board -- he has had rave reviews lately.

He's been our chef on Voyager both times. One of those times we did a CDB course (with Fred too), and he participated quite alot--helped us cook! It was great, he's charming and very cute too.

Homelover, thanks. I was hoping that Martin would be in Compass Rose but I guess no such luck.

Who is Ray? Is he new to Regent? Did he move up through the ranks?

Again, thanks,

Marc

Thanks! Maybe he is why the Voyager has had such great food reviews lately. Hope he'll participate in our CDB course

Oh, I'd forgotten you're doing one quite soon! Yes, probably he will!

No, he has served on many lines including Oceana and Seabourn. He is coming to the end of his career, I would think. He does puppet shows and magicky things as well as running the general entertainment.

Wendy, I know Cornell just came back on because I talked with him, but I don't know how long his contract is.
Marc, Ray is definitely at the end of his career! I went to his show, and found it to be well orchestrated musically, but boring. Dag said he worked with him 20 years ago on song of Flower
FYI, I am also known as Kirky5 elsewhere

Thanks HomeLover/Kirky5. Didn't know you were on Voyager. Not sure how long these contracts are, but it's looking bad for me and Cornell. Almost 4 months until we board, so we'll probably miss him. Oh well. Travelcat will get to try him out!

Since I am on the week before travelcat, hopefully I will get Cornell too.

How do you register for the CDB cooking class?

It was listed as an excursion and we booked it also but probably 9 months ago!

You have to book it fairly far in advance generally. It costs $495 pp. It's a fun experience, with usually 3 demo/cooking/eating sessions, special dinners and sometimes other events. We loved it so much we're doing it again in December, booked some time ago.

Unfortunately it is only offered on a few voyages. Your cruise is Spotlight and Art and Music. Ours is Spotlight on food and wine -- plus the CDB class.

All, thanks for the additional info.

I guess too much to hope for Jaimie or John. I miss not cruising with Barry and Sam, too. I hear Paul is on Navigator so at least there will be one familiar face.
