Interesting - so Cuddy left Freedom which begs the question - Where is he now?

On a well-deserved vacation. He gets a 2 month break between contracts.

 

Since he isn't assigned to a regular ship full-time, he will likely get 2 months (Dec - Feb) on another ship to cover that CDs break, and then return to Freedom Feb- April to cover Casey's next break (or to cover another CD elsewhere). Navigator, Radiance and Indy have spots open during that timeframe

From the HAL forum. It looks like he has not been a HAL CD recently but stayed active in the entertainment industry.

 

This is the official bio on the Zuiderdam's current CD, just in case some of you have yet to sail post-Dane...

 

"Bobby has been a part of the Entertainment Industry for over 26 years now. Most recently he was seen on the M/S Amsterdam as the lead male singer for Holland America Cruise Line. As far as cruise ships go, he has performed all over the world for Cunard, Norwegian, Disney, and Crystal Cruise Lines as the lead singer, as well as Company Manager, and singer/dancer. Bobby comes from Dallas, Texas, but calls Orlando, Florida home. For the past several years he has worked for Walt Disney World in Orlando, singing and dancing in the Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue, at Fort Wilderness in the Magic Kingdom, and has also been a part of "The Voices of Liberty" at Epcot, Disney's top vocal group. Bobby holds a BA Degree from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas, and got his start as a featured soloist with the Natchez, Mississippi Opera Company. From there he was one of the 3 back-up singers for Andy Williams in Branson, Missouri. A year later, he was hired by Jean Ann Ryan Productions, and spent several years working for Norwegian Cruise Line as the featured male singer. While he was in Dallas, he taught K-4 Music, and had the honor of singing with The Vocal Majority, an International Championship Men's Barbershop Chorus. Bobby has literally traveled all over the world singing and dancing, and is excited to call the M/S Zuiderdam home!"

John Blair says he & Katrina will join Liberty Oct. 29th.

 

Don't see him lasting long there. The strengths he does have are better suited to the Vision/Radiance Class ships and was completely overwhelmed with Anthem.

 

I've just had Bobby Brown on Harmony, and I much prefer his personality to Blair's, but I'm not sure how he got the position on Harmony. He's more the type that likes interacting with guests, so better suited to the smaller ships.

Radiance OTS - Steve Davis September 9 until December 3 (Who is covering from December 3 until January 28?) Joff Eaton begins January 28 until March 28

 

 

Does that mean Steve will be back on March 28th, we get on Radiance then. We had Steve as AM on Mariner and then CD on Vision, he was really enthusiastic and seemed to be everywhere.

Can you ask Dru if he will be on Anthem July 6th 2017? Would love to sail with him again!

 

Although it is probably too soon to know for sure, my guess is that your sailing will fall within Dru's break so you will have a covering CD. (Dru's next contract should be mid=February through mid-June, with a break from mid-June through mid-August) This is assuming Dru will be the regular CD of Anthem for the next couple of years

Radiance OTS - Steve Davis September 9 until December 3 (Who is covering from December 3 until January 28?) Joff Eaton begins January 28 until March 28

 

 

Does that mean Steve will be back on March 28th, we get on Radiance then. We had Steve as AM on Mariner and then CD on Vision, he was really enthusiastic and seemed to be everywhere.

Too soon to know for sure if Steve will be returning to Radiance. It seems odd that he will get a 4 month break with 2 CDs splitting that coverage. Maybe that indicates reassignments and a new regular CD?

 

Steve has a family member who posts his schedule to this thread, so perhaps she will stop by and clarify this for us.

Probably not. He generally works a 4 month contract, which would bring him to the end of February, followed by a 2 month break (March and April). And, at this time, it is unknown if he is the new regular CD of Liberty or if he will be assigned another ship when he returns in May.

Jeff usually covers the breaks of regular CDs on various ships, so it's hard to predict. Maybe someone traveling on Liberty this week will ask him, but it is entirely possible that he doesn't know yet.

Still no word on Indy when she comes back to the US next month?
No. Maybe you can post on the roll call for upcoming sailings to see if anyone is willing to ask Jamie who will be following him? Or, contact Jamie on FB.

Jeff is the regular CD on Liberty. Since Amy left he will be there during his scheduled times. Not sure of when.

Are you sure? Because a regular CD contract is 4 months on, followed by 2 months off. Jeff's current contract is slightly over 3 months, so it doesn't fall into the pattern for a regular CD. And, John Blair is scheduled to be there for the next 4 month contract (unless something has changed since that info was provided).

 

Now, if John's contract on LB is only going to be for 2 months (and then he will do 2 months on another ship), and Jeff is coming back for 4 months after a 2 month break, that makes sense!

 

Maybe someone can verify dates with either Jeff or John Blair, either onboard or on social media.

John Blair did not take over the Liberty this week as expected. I have asked someone onboard for more information. At the least I will find out more in 2 weeks when I board.

Hmmm...originally he was taking over in November, until someone posted the 10/29 date. I wonder if he is still scheduled to come onboard soon, or if Jeff is staying longer, and John is going elsewhere.

 

Thank you for letting us know, and please post any more info that you might come across!

 

(I will fix the list tomorrow)
