In just got off Serenade this past Monday whereby Mercedes announced her vacation was starting. I saw Katrina Blair a few times walking around in civi clothing... I assume the Blairs took over Sept 29. Perhaps someone on that sailing can confirm this for you also.

Can anyone find out who will be following Dennis on Jewel, and if it'll be just a one-time fill-in, or if he/she will be replacing Carly as regular CD of Jewel alternating with Dennis?

Great to read that Richard Spacey is going back to being CD on a ship again. Even if it is a Celebrity ship. LOL I may have to book a Celebrity cruise, just to have him as CD once more.

We are going on the Vision on the 23rd. The name Paul Rutter sounds familiar. Wondering if we have cruised with him before. Does anyone know what ships he has been on the within last few years?

Does anyone know anything about Chris Brown and Darryl Dyball? I'll be going on the VOTS in February and wondering what to expect.

 

Thanks in advance.

He was on Enchantment of the Seas when it was in Fort Lauderdale in the late 2000s before she left. He was on Radiance the summer of 2013. He was on Grandeur this summer.

 

He's working all around, filling in on different ships all the time.

Donna, re Mariner.

 

We recently (Oct 3) disembarked Rhapsody in Sydney. Ken Jones left Rhapsody that day (replaced by Graham Seymour, I heard) for 2 months leave and was to then take over on Mariner for 'Asian season'.

Thanks Gina. I guess maybe we haven't had him. We had Mark on both of our Enchantment sailings and we were on the Radiance in 2014 and 2011.
