My cruise on Magic is finally coming up, on 24th. Anyone know who the current CD is?

And, is he or she, any good?

Dr E will be the cruise Director. He is VERY entertaining. We are on this cruise also. I just hope he isn't in vacation mode a week early.

I just got off the ship on Sunday and the current cruise director is Brandon. He was great! Full of energy and very personable. I believe he is staying on for a couple months at least. Another guy took over after Saffie left, but for some reason or another only lasted a week. So Brandon unexpectedly took over.

I believe you're talking about the Carnival Pride, not the Carnival Magic.
