What is the name of the captain who oversaw the Oasis project? He is on the video series on RCL website. According to a video I saw on my last cruise he oversaw the Voyager class project. Where is he now? He has Norway descent per him.

William Wright brought Oasis out. If I remember correctly, he is an American but grew up in Norway. I believe he is no longer with the company.

Captain Medina from the Navigator told us he was going on vacation, but you have him leaving the ship?

It was told to me that RCL gets most of its officers from the Nordic area and Carnival Italian. Are those old stereotypes? Seeing Captain Medina is from Venezuela. Are there any women captains?

 

Does the captain always operate the controls when bringing the ship to and from the pier? I know you have to take in account wind and wave direction, and oh yeah 140K tons of momentum, but with azipods and thrusters, the Captains make parallel parking look easy.

that's how this chart is read...the first captain is working, the second one listed is on vacation.

I was told to me that RCL gets most of its officers from the Nordic area and Carnival Italian. (not true anymore for RCI, there are very few if any Nordic Jr officers on the bridge, RCI can pay less if they're not Nordic). Are there any women captains? (you must not have looked at the chart carefully, Capt Karin assigned to Majesty, and Capt Lis is assigned to Vision).

 

Does the captain always operate the controls when bringing the ship to and from the pier? I know you have to take in account wind and wave direction, and oh yeah 140K tons of momentum, but with azipods and thrusters, the Captains make parallel parking look easy. (He is there, he is also training the Staff Captain, so sometimes it's the Staff Captain, under the watchful eye of the master, who has his hands on the controls, and sometimes it's the master himself working the controls. They make it look easy because they've had years of experience and training, and they have great team assisting them (deck crew, officers, bridge team)).

Does anybody know where Capt Kjetil Gjerstad disapeared? From Liberty to "one time" relieve on Explorer and than ?

 

Explorer is supposed to be his ship now. I can't plug him into the spread sheet until he starts and I forget to manually put him on Explorer. There's supposed to be a rotation on EX May 15 and that's when his name will show up on the chart

How long do captains work a rotation?

 

it can be anywhere from 8 to 14 weeks with 10 weeks being the norm. Some captains (like Feavelen) prefer a longer rotation. The 2 masters of the ship can work out their own schedule, as long as each works 6 months total on the ship. That way they can plan for personal events. Of course life happens so they can be off for paternity leave, emergency medical leave, or bereavement leave.

I know this is a captains thread, but since we are currently on the Oasis, and Drew, our CD has been awesome, how would we know if he will be on this ship a year from now? We just booked another!! (5/14/16)

ok folks, bear with me, I just had to run to Canada to put my mother in a nursing home, I know there are updates but right now there are other things I need to tend to

 

I am glad to hear your mom got placement quicker than first though. I hope it goes as smooth as possible. Safe travels.
