slightly off topic, but anyone know Richard Spacey's longterm assignment with Celeb?

 

He was our favorite RCI CD, and the DW and I can't imagine him on Celeb, he will either be a whole new Richard, or a big shot of energy for Celeb, either way we want to book and see it!

The only info we have at this time is what I have posted here. I follow Richard on Twitter, and I am a frequent poster on the Celebrity boards, so as more info becomes available, I will update this list.

 

 

When I was on the Summit in August, it was said that Celebrity is recruiting high energy CDs from other lines. It's one of the changes they are making in their entertainment department, which Richard was in charge of when he took over that corporate position last year.

He's moved back to being a CD with Celebrity, having taken over more of an admin role to start with. His current ship is Summit.

Thank you.

 

I think that will make Celeb my new cruise line! I loved everything else except the ho hum atmosphere of the ship, and little energy... and maybe some wow factor ships, and I'm sold for life!!!

 

Once I find out which ship is Richard's longterm, I'm booking!

Allure question: who will be there March 1-April?

 

 

Sent from my iPhone using Forums

 

It's not clear at the moment. Is Jerome's start date April 19 when the European season begins, or will he be onboard March 1 through the European season?

 

I'm also concerned that the info we have regarding Joff has changed. He is tweeting from Quantum. It's not clear if he is onboard for the transatlantic, or if he just visited the ship when it was in port yesterday/today. Then, he said that Anthem is his next ship, with no mention of filling in on Allure in the interim.

Just off Freedom and Casey still not sure who will replace him in December for his break, but he feels he will be back on Freedom after it. Sorry I could not get a definite answer.
