I will say it now but I think this year we will find it almost impossible to keep track other than no more than a month out. I hear from quite a number from Maitre D upwards that there is likely to be a lot of movement with Bliss coming out and general shortages across the fleet.

 

Indeed I suspect we will see the opening team for the Bliss split up too after the opening to cover for shortages and promotions.

 

My bet is they end up split Escape/Bliss lets see.

 

We may be off to the "dark side" to try the Yacht Club once we find out where Yannis is.

Is Yannis not still on MSC Divina?

Looking for who the concierge is on the Pearl please. We sail in March, so I know it is still early, but someone may know. :)

Like stated above, with Bliss coming out this spring, there will likely be a lot of movement of officers and staff. Even if you knew who was aboard today, and even if they think they are staying on the Pearl, it's a 50/50 shot that they'd still be there in March. Officers and crew will start moving about 4-6 weeks out from the launch of Bliss (some will be there sooner) for training, and the inaugural TA is 4/21.

Thanks for the information about MSC and Yannis :) Do you know if he is staying there at this time - love him to bits - a great guy. Deserved to be HD

 

You are correct and even those that think they know you only need to ask some of the crew personally and they say that contracts are being extended moved and many changes.

 

I know for some on this thread this is not what they want to hear but who would have thought this 15 months ago that

 

Prem

Mustafa

Captain Hilden

Yannis

and others would not be NCL officers

 

We miss all of the above

Divina is the last place I knew Yannis was. I haven't heard from him lately so I don't know for sure where he is right now. I just reposted a photo today on facebook that we took with him 5 years ago, when he was acting HD right after Sean went on vacation.

 

I never had the honor of meeting/sailing with Mustafa or Prem but have heard great things.

Just off Escape today, Anoop is the concierge.

Our butler was Bagus, and he was excellent.

Don't know who the hotel director was, sorry.

Thanks. I took pictures of the photo wall. It's the easiest way.

 

I thought that might have been the case! I hope it was a great cruise for you.

Was on Epic last week...Hanno was the Concierge and Jojit was our Butler. I believe the HD was Nicholas(?).

Hanno was the Concierge

 

How was he? We had him on the Star a while ago and he was excellent.

We absolutely loved him! We didn’t use the concierge team very much, but found every interaction with Hanno to be lovely and genuine. He made us feel special in a way that seemed that he really cared about making our experience wonderful.

Loved Hanno on the Getaway November. Hope he goes to the Bliss or Escape September so we can see him again.

I guess we got really lucky ! We were in the Garden Villa in Oct/Nov 2017

in the South Pacific on the Jewel. We thought Bruno was going to be the concierge and

we found out it was Bowen we would have as our concierge. If ever I had an opportunity to cruise with Bowen again... I'd be there in a heartbeat. He went above all expectations we had of having a great cruise.. not just a good cruise, but a great cruise. A thank you was so small when we wanted it to mean so much. I hope our tip to the Garden Villa staff showed our appreciation.

If you meet Bowen, hopefully you will see what I mean.:halo:

Bowen was trained by the one and only David Contreras. He got a masterclass in training. We had Bowen as asst. Concierge and he was excellent. It is great to see he is doing well and maybe one day we will meet him again.

Does anyone know where Edourd, who was our Asst Concierge on Epic last March is now? We adored him. I know he is engaged and hoping to be promoted. We would love to cruise with him again. He was great.

It was Captain Matko.

Sorry, I thought I was quoting the posters who were asking who the Captain was during the infamous 12/29 Bomb Cyclone cruise. It was Capt. Matko.

 

I'm told Capt Svensson is captain on the current BA cruise that left 1/6.

I wonder if you met her. She was up in the Haven in a 2 bedroom suite with her daughter. She set up a bunch of private tours through the roll call for some of the ports.

 

 

Probably not as we did not do any tours having been to most of the ports already. Thanks though
