  1. Buffet with tables, you could see the basketball court from the many of the tables --- would I guarantee DH remembers it correctly....and understand, I don't mind a buffet at all...choices were terribly limited and there are plenty of ways to offer options for Mexican (which I love) food. We have been on Harmony, Allure (2x), Oasis and Symphony and it is easy to get some of the offerings on the ships mixed up. Point is he liked the food and I thought it was awful.
  2. I have enough trouble keeping track....hubby firmly says it was on Harmony. It was awful....poor choices to eat and poor setup.
  3. As far as I am concerned.....El Loco Fresh was terrible......my hubby liked it when we had it on Harmony....but I did not.
  4. I like to talk about the interesting things that some of our AM's and CD's do....and that is wonderful....glad to hear some agreement on the 'personal info' --- Happy Cruising to all.
  5. I would find the prospect of getting 'personal' information about the AM or CD uncomfortable in this time of keeping some thing private, as they should be. I know some details about some of the staff, I have encountered over time, but would NOT be comfortable having that in a public thread. As far as the tedious nature of keeping threads like this as up to date as possible -- It does take work/effort/time. Some of the AM's that I have met over the years we have cruised are wonderful in communicating with me, and some who have moved up into the CD role still help.....but it takes relying on cruisers and some FB searching to find out more. It is funny that when I am unable to devote the time to do it....some people notice and question where I have vanished to. HELP is always appreciated....to keep this thread UptoDate!
  6. Updated 10/14/19 --- corrected Thanks to everyone for their help in providing me with information on who they come across on sailings. My hope is to put update this thread every few days or at least once week. To do that, I need cruisers (or others that somehow have 'insider information') to let me know who they come across on sailings. HAPPY CRUISING! What Activity Manager have you come across? Post the name, ship and sailing date to help keep this thread as accurate as possible. ****Adventure OTS – Cian has been identified as currently on AD. Cian has told a cruiser that he will be onboard until Nov. 23 when he goes to Grandeur, ****Allure OTS – Kim Scott took over on 10/13. No idea if it is a 2 or 4 month contract. ****Anthem OTS – Kat joined Anthem in mid August for 2 months. We just sailed on the first NE/Canada cruise of the season and she was terrific. We will see who takes over from Kat in late October. Kat hosted the Quest and did a great job….I personally was not very fond of where they hold the Quest, but realistically there may be no other location. ****Brilliance OTS – TT has been reported as onboard on the completed sailing 4/20/19 and still onboard as of mid Sept 2019 by a cruiser. Based on normal contract periods, it would make sense for TT to be heading to vacation soon….so hoping to hear more from other cruisers on Brilliance. ****Empress OTS – Tanya was on board, as per a cruiser in June. Probably took over from Eric Lopez. ****Enchantment OTS – Saini has been onboard, but could be completing a contract and departing the ship. Who is currently onboard? ****Explorer OTS – Katie (unknown last name, but not to be confused with Katie Turner) took over on June 26 and she is expected to be onboard until the end of October. ****Freedom OTS – Bern has been identified as on board. No information on contract timeline. ****Grandeur OTS – Katrina Blair should have returned on 8/13 and is expected to be there until 11/23. *****Harmony – Chris Turdo should have taken over on July 28. ****Independence OTS – Katie Turner took over in June and should be onboard for a 4 month contract until Sept/October timeframe….unsure of exact dates. *****Jewel OTS – Luana from Brazil returned to Jewel in mid May. As of the 7/14 sailing she was still on board. Probably a 4 month contract through sometime in Sept. *****Liberty OTS – Who is onboard NOW? ****Majesty OTS – Mickey Martin will be moving directly from NV back to MJ on 10/4. I do not know who is onboard right now, until Mickey Martin gets there on 10/4. This came directly from Mickey Martin. *****Mariner OTS – Gemma Stubs has taken over from Alex Paul late July. She is scheduled to move into the CD role sometime in Mid September. Perhaps Alex Paul will be returning at that time as the AM…..time will tell. *****Navigator OTS – Mickey Martin has been reported to be onboard. Mickey has told me directly that he will be handing NV over to Eric Lopez on 10/4. *****Oasis OTS – Drydock until November 24 (correction) ***** Ovation – Aysy took over on 9/20/19. *****Quantum – Who is currently onboard? *****Radiance OTS – Sophie is currently onboard on the 7/30 sailing as reported to me, by the CD on the ship, Mark Rous. **** Rhapsody OTS – Thiago Motta has been reported on board. As reported to me by a cruiser, Thaigo may be onboard until December. **** Serenade OTS – Nick has been spotted on the ship as AM. If someone can ask him how long his contract is and until when he will be onboard, that would be wonderful….THANKS for all the help. **** Spectrum OTS – Bonnie Bai has been identified as currently onboard at least since July 15. **** Symphony OTS – Flavio Maeda rejoins the ship on 9/21 for a 4 month contract until mid January. ***** Vision OTS – Enzo Matijaca will be on the ship until late October or Early November, finishing up a contract and heading to vacation as told to me by Enzo. Waiting to learn who is taking over from him. *****Voyager OTS – Kitty has been onboard since May 3, 2019. If it was a four month contract she would be on vacation now….so wondering who is the AM presently.
  7. I don't understand why you believe that telling people they would be assigned their cabin at the pier would eliminate any anxiety. People who are so anxious about things, should just NOT book a guarantee cabin. What puzzles me is how wide the range is of 'room assignments to GTY reservations are'.....it can vary from within days of making reservation to up to arrival at pier. But I am NOT losing sleep over it.
  8. We have been on 28 cruises and finally were looking at cruises that offered a Guarantee Booking Option and took it. We have an upcoming cruise in February where we took the Balcony GTY option and no cabin yet. I am not worried -- I know we will get a cabin. I do like that I learned something new --- that if we get to the port, the porters have a master list to look up our cabin and put the correct cabin number on our luggage tags. Thanks.

  10. Wow, 8 months is an unusually long contract. That is very odd. Usually it is a 4 month on and two month vacation, unless some "situation" happens and someone needs to be extended for a little bit....but for a 'contract length'....very odd.
  11. We have a GTY balcony booked for Adventure on the Feb 23rd cruise and nothing has been assigned. The price was a little better so we decided to try it....we have never had a bad cabin or cruise....so all will be good.

  13. It is difficult enough to keep this thread with the names of the Activity Managers up to date.....but if YOU want to tackle the idea you have.....GO FOR IT! Develop it to your hearts content.
  14. Vacations are usually two months long, not two weeks......I just sent him a FB message to find out who is taking over from him. Hopefully he will answer me. Thanks for sharing.
  15. The most current information that I get from cruisers and my own sources is found in the last pages of the thread....going through all the earlier pages, which go back to when this thread was started won't be of help. I just keep updating the thread as I get new information. Cruisers share personal tidbits about instances they have had with various Activity Managers, but there is NO 'general info' on them in any one place.
