So we know that Marc Walker is leaving Enchantment on Nov 17th. Do we know if hes just taking a break, or going to another ship?

 

I have to be honest, he makes this cruise a great one. I have had him 3 times(4th upcomming) and I never get tired of his stuff. And everyperson I have brought with me, all think hes great...

 

Glad I will get to see him one last time on my Nov3rd cruise....love to know whats happening to him after the 17th.

We don't know for sure, but he's been following a regular pattern of 4 months on the ship followed by a 2 month break. So unless something unexpected happens, he'll likely be back on Enchantment mid-January.

Ok..good to know. I always like to suggest first time cruises take the Enchantment 4 day cruise...great first experience and a great cruise director...and I myself enjoy it as wel obviously!!
According to your signature, you'll be on EN in 28 days. Maybe you can ask Marc if he is coming back in Jan, and who will be doing the 2 month fill-in during Marc's break. Info directly from the CD is this thread's best resource!

On the Adventure recently (back in UK 12/10), Cuddy (the activities manager) was going on the Allure following our cruise, and I am sure I heard Bobby, the cruise director, say on the morning show that he was eventually going on the Splendour next. He didn't say when though.

No one does justice to a bare bottom and pink tutu quite the way Graham does.;):p:eek::rolleyes: Sure do miss cruising with him. To tide me over, I am reading about a character named Graham Seymour who is a high ranking intelligence agent in books by Daniel Silva.

Nice to see that Joff Eaton will have a new ship of his own ... he's earned it. We still remember him well from our Transatlantic cruise on Independence in '09 ... and after at least a dozen more cruises, he remains our favorite.

 

Simona Ferraiuolo (Splendour) is a sleeper. She's very personable, does her job extremely well, speaks five languages fluently (an absolute necessity on European cruises) ... obviously loves her job. She's not all that well-known to most cruisers since she's on a smaller ship sailing "secondary" itineraries (eastern Mediterranean, South America). But if you run into her, you'll know it.

Just off the 10/5 sailing of the Allure and we had Jerome Sueur as the CD. It was his first week as a CD and he did a wonderful job. I really enjoyed him and he gave us a bit of his background, before he joined RCI he was a snake charmer, yes it is a true story. I hope to sail with him again, he has a lot of energy.
