Does anyone know Clo O'Conner's schedule? I would love to see her coming back to Anthem?
She not going back to anthem no time soon probably when Dru goes on vacation that will be most likely in February

I was very disappointed also. I have the 3 12 night cruises booked from January 6th, and one is a B2B for 20 nights. I was hoping Clo would come back.

I'm on Jan 6th too. Maybe we'll get lucky and Dru gets extended. It appears he's on the Anthem for less than 3 months, that seems odd.

Dru has been splitting his 4 month contract between two ships, to cover CD breaks on those ships. So, this 2 month contract is normal, and then he will do 2 months on another ship.

Dru's last contract was a full 4 monther on Harmony. My guess is that he is CD for the Spectrum takeout and is going back to fill in on a ship that he is familiar with before SP is launched.

That's a good guess. And I can't count because he will be on Anthem for 3 months, not 2. :o:o:o:o

We will be on Oasis Nov 25th looks like Jeff Arpin will be our CD. Any thoughts on him? Never had him before.

 

We are on that sailing as well. Went on December of last year and Tim Connor was CD. He was fantastic. Jeff has some big shoes to fill but from what I've read, don't get your hopes up.

Jeff is a good guy, one of the older CD’s that had retired then came back. He has been handling the M&M by himself—believe me, if he does the M&M it will be the best one you have ever attended!!
