I have problems copying and pasting from my Kindle... can someone update the Crown information to reflect Billy Hygate until Nov. 22, 2014, Lisa Ball from 11/22 on for me? Thank you!

 

Will do.

 

Got the "official" email today and can confirm Neil Roberts on Star.

 

On November 24 cruise or the cruise prior to November 24?

Just saw that Richard Joseph will be CD on the Island Princess in 2015 next Summer. Two months in Alaska and then two months in the Med. Don't have the dates.

Just received an email from Princess Service Rep. that "DAVE COLE" will be on Star Princess for our November 24 cruise to Hawaii. :D HOO RAAAH :D

 

Would love to have Dave next April to Hawaii. How long do the CDs usually stay on board?;)

We have Mike Witte on the Grand next week.... I can't believe I don't know who he is? Is he relatively new to Princess?

Answer to Vickie's question.....yes, Mike Witte is new to Princess. We just got off the Grand and he is still learning the "Princess way" on some things. The answers to his Wake Show question of the day have to be turned in by 9:00 a.m. For example. Even though the show runs on tv until 11:00 a.m. He wants to record the show at 9:00 on the day before. Go figure. He also likes to sing publicly, wherever and whenever possible. I think he wishes he was a rock star. I will be interested in your opinion when you return. I talked to many members of his staff, and they all had opinions....

thank you for responding.

 

Wow yes 9 am is very very early considering I may not even be dressed by then. I find most CD now record their morning the she night before. Some even show the show starting at 10 pm the night before (Lee).

 

Thanks again

We were on the Grand in October (Hawaiian return from Vancouver) and the DW and I enjoyed Mike and his CD staff. Corey (the assistant CD) was funny and had a unique wardrobe. His pointed shoes were interesting too. Ana (from Mexico) was a hoot as were the rest of the team.

 

We were surprised about the 9am deadline for returning the wake show answers, even though on the answer sheet it clearly states 12 noon. The wake show started broadcasting in the evening after 10 pm on Channel 21.

Was Corey from New Zealand? If so, we had him as the Deputy CD and Marascalah Stanton as the CD on the CB back in March. They made quite the team. Corey was fantastic!

Corey is getting off on the day we get on :( We have sailed with him many times and yes he is a hoot. He recently got promoted to Deputy CD and sounds like he is doing a great job. Wonder who will be replacing him.

 

Ana is on board - we love her.

 

Thanks for your comments.

Ah, so his bright coloured striped pants weren't ruined in the ships laundry after all! Corey was on the Ocean Princess for awhile in June and July for Norway and Baltic cruises along with Stu McGunnigal.

 

We quite enjoy getting involved in the Wake show and make a point of catching it on TV every day. At least until we took the Vancouver to Honolulu one way on September 16 with David Bradshawe who we enjoyed otherwise but he too is a NO "question of the day" CD and before long we were no longer watching the Wake Show. I dont understand the "No Question of the day" logic. We use writing in as a way to praise various departments and crew members all the time.

Matt is great and his lovely lady Kim should be there with him. I have had the pleasure of travelling with them twice now and hope to again.

It looks like Lisa Ball will probably still be on Crown when we sail in early February. I did a quick search and found a couple of extremely favorable reviews. Perhaps we got lucky with this one!

Yes, we both did. Amelia (Ibfern) said she was great on the Royal just recently.

Sammi Baker is replacing Dave Cole on the Golden for a few weeks. Not a long term assignment for her.

 

Mike White worked for Celebrity for many years. Glad to hear that he has had some Hawaii experience. I look forward to chatting with him about the islands when I am on the Grand to Mexico.

 

ELUA and CD Dave will be on the Grand to Hawaii in March. So sad that I can't change my February cruise to March. So sorry for those who were so excited about CD Dave being on the Star only to find out he won't be after all.
