Some Captains are never seen and make very few announcements,
Sounds like Cruise Directors!
What is a Fleet Cptain....thought thats what Commodore was?
Since Captains rotate in and out frequently there is no way you can keep an accurate list on CC. Fail to understand why knowing who the Captain is would be important to an enjoyable cruise.
Actually, I think it is going to much easier to keep the Captains list up to date as compared to the Cruise Directors list. The CD email comes out only about two weeks before sailing date here as the Captain is known probably 6 weeks before the cruise. This gives much more time well before the cruise to submit the info here. I suspect that Captains tend to alternate back and forth on the same ship more than the CD's do which also will make it easier to predict who will be the next captain.
As for the usefulness of this info, I agree to some extent as few would alter their plans based on the ships captain but even our cruise friends and family have commented long after returning home how great the captain was on some cruises. So it might be handy to have a running Captains list here on CC.
I am constantly amazed at some of the topics started here on CC wondering who could be bothered to type the question in for something that seems so trivial to me. But they do so why not a Captains list!
Celebrity Cruises = 04 & Number of Days Cruising = 045
Princess Cruises = 34 & Number of Days Cruising = 370
Other Cruise Line = 01 & Number of Days Cruising = 007
**Total Cruises** = 39 & Total Days Cruising = 422
