Who works on each ship?

I thought I would start a thread to find out who is currently working on each NCL/NCLA ship. Who are the CD's, Assistant CD's and Port and Cruise Consultant(s)? If you have recently been on one of the ships you will find this info on the front page of the Freestyle Daily on the first day of the cruise! Thanks in advance for participating.

For the Star for the 10/16 sailing:

 

CD: Kieron Buffery

Asst CD: cant remember his name but he's a youngish guy - I believe he was from Canada and reminded me of a game show host (lots of energy and smiles)

Cruise Consultant: Duncan (he also had an asst/teammate but I dont know her name)

Tall guy named Mike? Used to be on the Dawn, and then the Jewel, and has recently transferred (to the Star?). I had thought he was going to be CD though, not Asst. CD.

Yes I heard while we were on the Jewel that Mike was going to the Star as CD. Where will Kieron be going? Hope on some of our future ships we have booked as he is good and would love to sail with him again.

Well, I agree that things might have problems, but remember, it's not costing us anything to belong (and it could)

I agree, and I have not come across, or even looked to hard for a better alternative. I thank the lucky stars every day for CruiseCritic.com, as it has provided me with endless hours of enjoyment, and allows us to fulfill our enjoyment goals on each cruise we take.

 

As frustrating as some technical problems can be, I know they become aware of them, and do what they can to fix them. In the meantime, I congratulate them and thank them for this service. There's not much out there these days that is "free", and this gives us so much.

Most of the staff on Cruise ships work for either 4 or 6 months and then have a couple of months off. That is what happened with Kieron before. He returned to the Star after a couple of months off just in time for our cruise this past summer (late July). If he works 4 on and then gets some time off, his vacation should be coming up again soon. Kieron is the best cruise director I have experienced on NCL.

 

What happened to Martin and his partner who were the Port and Cruise Consultants over the summer on the Star?? Are they also on break. They were very knowledgeable about the Alaskan ports.

Ah, I remember Shaun and Martin from the Sky in 2003! They were great fun. We spent quite a bit of time with them on St Thomas and had dinner with them a number of times too. I hope all is well with them and to see them again soon...

There was a hugely engaging CD on the Sky in late 2003 whose name, I think, was Adrian. Never see him mentioned anymore and wonder if he's still with NCL. A really good cruise director, not saccharine or cutesy at all, just fun.

Here is what I have. Not a big change really, just corrected Kanani's name.

Judging from other posts, Ricky Matthews is the CD on the Dawn. Last I heard, Julie Valeroite was the DC on the Crown, but that was mid summer. I hope you try to keep this up to date every so often, as we all have our favorites, and it's nice to know where they are.

I recall that Rich Cleeson (sp?) was the Cruise Director on the POA's inaugural cruise, and has been there quite recently. He's probably due for a vacation, soon, but I read that his assistant was "Shona". We had Rich on our first ever cruise, on the Star in 2002, and he was terrific. I met him on the beach one day in Kuai, and though he was very energetic, and always around, early am to late pm, I think it was him that said he did not drink coffee. [He later left NCL, but returned to the POA]
