I just found out from RCCL that Richard Spacey will be the CD on my Thanksgiving cruise on the FOS. I've never sailed with Richard. Is he the "John Heald" of RCCL? Who's the "top" CD for RCCL? I've heard several compliments on this board about Richard,Graham Seymour, Ken Rush and others.

Just wondering how lucky we are.

You are lucky. He is highly energetic and a lot of fun. That's not to say the other CD's are not, but he's one of the better ones.

Aw shucks! Thanks. I feel very lucky!

Thanks all for the feedback! I wonder too if he's staying on FOS or just there temporarily? And is he's staying who would replace him on Oassis? Is there another CD as good as him?

I thought the Oasis was going to be his permanent ship. Why would he be going to the Freedom?
