Ok whoever suggested I go back a "few" pages to get reviews of Casey Pelter on fos.....I went back 32 pages of threads and saw one comment about when he was coming onboard. Nothing reviewing him. Would someone please be kind enough to give any reviews/experiences of him they may have, so I do not need to read 188 pages! I really, really would appreciate it.

Enzo was filling in for Marc this weekend on Enchantment. I was there. He has been the activities manager recently. Who is Frankie?

 

Gina

Frankie was the activities manager on Explorer and then on Oasis. He posted on social media that he was doing the quick fill-in for Marc. He probably came over today, because Marc also posted that he was going over to the ship today to meet the new fill-in CD. It was all a bit confusing until you posted this info which tied everything together. Now, I just have to fix the dates Edited by DonnaK

In the same post today, Marc said the new CD was filling in until Friday, so perhaps Marc is now anticipating being back by Friday (29th) instead of Monday (1st). I suppose it will all depend how things are at home. I'm sure he'll keep updating his FB page. He's promised photos of today's visit to the ship.

Saw a newspaper interview in July about Voyager. Alan 'Bobby' Brown mentioned after Voyager, he was going onto Serenade then a break and then onto Adventure of the Seas. Have enjoyed Bobby and wife Becky, Gordon Whatman and Luke Arrowsmith as CDs down here in Aus. Chris Brown did a good job of activities director as well. All very personable hosts.

Confused.

 

Is it Bobby Brown who will be CD on Voyager, or Chris Brown?

Sorry for any confusion. It was an article in the W.A. Times, quite an interesting article about Alan 'Bobby' Brown and RCI. Bobby was on the Voyager from Feb 13th, 2014 for a short time, then he was going to the Serenade, then a break and then due to go on the Adventure of the Seas, according to the interview at that time. Chris Brown was Activities Director when we were on Voyager early 2014. Have only read on this forum that he is going to be promoted to CD on Voyager.

Hi Donna

I received further information from RCI via private facebook message today and they advised that Chris Brown will take over the reigns from Fang Lixin and will commence on 25 November on Voyager of the Seas.

 

Cheers Aleisha

Casey Pelter was the CD on Rhapsody in late 2012, he is great and gets around the ship. Runs a great morning show.

Gina

Frankie is great, when we were on Oasis in December he filled in a lot for Jimmy Rhodes because Jimmy's knee was swollen for most of the 2 cruises we did (B2B).

 

To be honest I prefer him over Jimmy Rhodes, Jimmy was great but Frankie was more approachable and around the ship all the time.

Thanks for the clarification, megsie! So Bobby was on VY Feb 14 till April 10, then on SR April 26 till June 28.

 

So, he will be Rob's fill-in on AD beginning early September (as Rob's contract is likely 4 months long, and Bobby's break is likely 2 months long - typical contract and break lengths).

Bobby did say in the interview that he was going with the Voyager to Japan which would have been April 20. But that would not have given him much time to relocate for the Serenade - but I guess that's what they do. He also said that he would be taking a little break over Christmas and New Year. Sorry can't help with exact dates.

Thank you!

 

That makes his contract on AD a 4 month one, if his next break is around the end of December. (Assuming he isn't moving to another ship between now and then!)

 

Someone will fill in the exact dates once Bobby gets onboard AD.

Hi Donna,

Just got off the Explorer this morning. Leigh also got off the ship today to start his vacation. He said he is supposed to come back to Explorer in Nov for repositioning cruise. He is not sure at the moment which ship he will be assigned to after his contract on Explorer is over.
