Thank you for passing along the information about Enzo as the Activity Manager on board.

 

If anyone has information about the Activity Managers on board you can share it directly with me, through the Activity Manager thread that is on the message board.

 

Below is a link directly to that thread to make it easier for anyone with information on the Activity Managers:

Donna,

Just noticed that I think Lixin Fang should properly be listed as Fang Lixin based on his RCI biography.

 

Also, anybody have any comments on Drew Devine? DW, friends, and I are going on Oasis in October and it's always nice to have an idea of a CD's personality (and thus what the guest program is like).

I've seen his name written both ways, the Euro/American format and the Chinese format. Since he is also listed as Fang Lixin on FB, I will change it on the list Edited by DonnaK

Hi, Donna! Let me echo many others and say you are truly an asset to this board. Keeping this list is time consuming and you deserve a lot of positive reinforcement. I think we all appreciate what you do.

 

May I ask a question. I see the CD for Serenade is aboard for the European sailings. When do you think there will be a change and when do you think it might be announced? We board Serenade in April and are very curious as to who will be CD. Though it is not a deal breaker.

 

When we did our 3 cruises on the Serenade in April and May Carly Boileau was the CD and she was terrific. She said she was hoping to be back on that ship in the fall as she lives in New Brunswick and could visit with her husband in many of the ports. We sure hope it will be her when we do the Snowbird Migration cruise and the one following.

Really? We had her on Jewel of the Seas and were not impressed with her at all. Entertainment and activities were the lowest of all of our cruises, on RCI and other lines.

Mitch is very personable, high energy and lots of fun. DW and I had the pleasure of spending time with him when he was CD on Majesty.

 

I miss Mitch on Majesty. He truly is great. I like Carlos too though.

Still looking for thoughts about Jamie F on FOS? one of the few we are not familiar with. Thanks

 

Sent from my SCH-I915 using Forums mobile app

We had Jamie as AM on Rhapsody back in 2013 and he was fantastic then and I'm sure he is a brilliant CD now. Very funny man and easily approachable.

I guess it shows how tastes/expectations vary. Without trying to found mean, I put her as my least favorite of all time. She did the love and Marriage show between dinner seatings so it was only 15 minutes. Her quest was G rated and very dull. I kind of thought she phoned it in our week and let Elvis her AD do most of the real work.

Looks like you were on Jewel 2-3 weeks after us. I couldn't agree more. Didn't I read her Elvis was becoming a CD after a vacation maybe?

Agree with you DonnaK. We had her on the Serenade in March and I mentioned how phony she was on another thread here on Cruise Critic and was attacked. :) However, I stand by that comment.

 

Maybe in real life she is a wonderful person but as a CD I am also not impressed and would not want to have her again.

Do we know the status of her semi-retirement? I was not particularly impressed either.

I am anxious to see who our CD will be in October on the Serenade. We had Ken Jones on our Radiance last year and really enjoyed him, then Amy Fickert came on for our Hawaii cruise and didn't like her as much.

No, the original info was that she was going to tend to her lavender farm with her husband, and just do occasional fill-in contracts. But, she's appears regularly on our list.

Elvis and a few other AM's were said to be promoted to CD's, however they all are still appearing as AM's and it hasn't happened yet.

Sorry to hear most folks didn't like Carly! I did get the feeling that she was friendly with us because we are Canadian as is her husband so we had some mutual things to discuss. We don't go to a lot of the shows so can't really comment on those. Had dinner with her one evening and really enjoyed visiting with her. She even came to the cocktail time before dinner.

 

Oh well, cruising is great and we all have our favourite ships, staff, crew, etc.
