Does anyone know who the current officers are on Voyager? (Captain, Cruise Director, Concierge, Loyalty Ambassador, Hotel Director, etc.)

Elsewhere on this board there are specific threads listing the Captains, Cruise Directors, and Concierges on the various ships. I doubt that there are similar listings for loyalty ambassadors or hotel directors, but someone who has recently been on Voyager may be able to furnish that information.

We were on the Voyager TA, disembarking in NOLA Nov. 12. Our Captain was Frank Martinsen. Cruise Director Abel Jeney, has moved to Adventure. Keith Williams is now CD. Conceirge is Israel Sanchez, outstanding conceirge. Loyalty Ambassador was Julio Gomez, and a big help to us. Hotel Director was Robert Taggart, very cool. Bob has moved to Navigator. F&B Manager was Emmanouil Kampanakis. The chief engineer was Stan Sunjic.

My understanding from other threads is that Captain Bang takes over command of the Voyager on December 17th sailing.

My understanding is that they usually do a 3 month shift but I'm not positive of that. In this exact case Captain Bang is suppose to be in charge until sometime in March.

Can you confirm that Bob has moved to the Navigator? I had heard that and I am hoping that information is correct since we will be sailing on Navigator on New Year's Eve. Thanks for any information that you might have.

I concur with Rick, I think he was supposed to get on the Nav
the second week of Dec if memory serves me correct. Very
nice guy!!!!
Rick, are you the poster? I thought Deirdre was the one on
the computer. Don't know what made me think that. I guess
I just assumed.

Anita,
I post most of the time. I always add Deirdra's name to the signature in case I post something incorrect and than I can pin that on her.
Best to Moses.

We were with you on the crossing. First time we had Taggart as HD. What a funny guy. His comments during Dancing with the Stripes were hilarious. Hope we get a chance to meet him sometime.

Ok now I'm confused and don't want to be. When I sail on march 3rd, 2012 who will be captain and who will be cruise director? I've heard capt bang but also sverre Ryan.
