He posted it on "Allan Brooks is the best CD" Facebook page not his own.......I was really hoping it wasn't true as we are on the Allure on October 19th......now it is a mystery who we will have :confused:

 

I went to that page and saw it was from him :(

He was our favorite CD. We had him on Oasis and Freedom. We had Ken Rush on Allure and I was sorry we didn't get Allan there too. I wonder where he's going?

All I know is that even back in May, Joff indicated that he knew what was happening with Tim but wouldn't say what. From that, we thought it was either a move to Anthem with Joff (they do make a great team) or being made a CD. However, we don't know if it is permanent or just a temporary promotion to cover the last 2 UK sailings and the Transatlantic...

 

I guess an element of it is if they actually want to be CD and not Activities Manager. I haven't sailed with Darryl so don't know much about him.

 

:)

 

Oh, he DOES, he DOES!

Hi Graham

 

We will be back on Rhapsody on 25th November and are glad to hear that you will on board then. Can you please tell me if Tanya and Ben will be on at the same time. My daughter loved her chats with Tanya and is really hoping she will be on.

 

Also is Ibby still on Rhapsody?

 

Thanks and see you in 58 days :)

 

Suzie

Hi there

Tanya & Ben will be on

 

Ibby has now become sports staff and is on the Oasis

 

Very Best

Graham

Allan Brooks just posted on Facebook that he has resigned from Royal Caribbean. :(:confused:

 

 

At last!! Public knowledge! I tried to hint it on the forum in a couple of threads, but no one picked up on it.

 

I knew it was imminent because Katie told me on my August 31st sailing that he was "done with cruise ships" and then realised her mistake and she said "I've said too much as it is." I got the impression he wants to focus on his businesses and his family back at home.

 

A loss to the company for definite.

Any info on who will be the new CD team on Allure?

 

I have some guesses, but this is only speculation. Carly B is not returning to Jewel, but it hasn't been announced which ship she has been reassigned to. Also, there was talk some time ago about Leigh Xuereb moving over to Allure when EX repositions (but then the talk reverted back to him returning to EX) so I wonder if that's still a possibility.

 

I'm just starting rumors here, but I hope someone will report concrete info back to us soon!

I'm pretty sure Carly B is on the Voyager with Darryl D as AM . . . but you might want to get confirmation from someone sailing on this . . . .

I'll go with this info for now, since it's really hard to get feedback from ships positioned in Asia! Anyway you've always given us accurate info in the past, so no reason to doubt you now!

Hi Donna. I just sailed the Allure Sept. 14th, I spoke to Ken Rush at the top tier event. According to Ken, Allan Brooks is leaving to take a postion in Celebrity's Corporate offices. Of Course Ken is going to the Quantum, surprising as it may seem he was not sure yet who is replacing him. He did mention the possibility of Joff Eaton coming to Allure next year (date unknown) but not late in the year. I know that goes counter to the info of Joff being the full time CD on Anthem. It might be possible that Joff will be on Allure for a short time before going to Anthem.

Thanks Eng23. The info that comes directly from Joff is that he is leaving Indy on Oct 25, and reporting to Anthem sometime in March. That's an unusually long break (5 months), so it is very possible that he can do a fill-in on Allure during that time.

Let me please pass on a major "thank you" for all the time and work you put into maintaining this information.

In a world where people have no hesitation to post complaints and negativity all over the Internet...please indulge me to let you know many of us appreciate your efforts.
