Recommended Posts

Anyone planning to take the list on? Just wondering.

I would think if we just have a list of the ships and/or copy one of the previous posts - as you know something anyone can quote and update the information within so no one poster will have to own it?

OK...here goes.  Please be kind.  I've updated the list Donna had in post #666.  Nothing ominous in that, I hope.:classic_ohmy:  I've read over the thread since then and incorporated the new info in the list above, hopefully leaving out the temp changes due to the CD conference.  I've noted the post # where I picked up the new info.  If you post updates here, I'll try and catch them to incorporate in the next list.

Elvis Pinto confirmed he is now back on Empress as of today,  after his vacation is over...back to the work he loves....but while on vacation he cruised on Radiance....what a hoot that must have been!

It looks that, from this list, Marc Walker will be on 2 ships at the same time:-- Harmony from 29th March until late July AND Mariner from 18th March until the end of 2019.  Not being critical, as this would be a huge job, just pointing out something I noticed.

Thanx for the proof reading.  I was going to do that before I hit post but lost my way.:classic_rolleyes:

 

Can anyone confirm where Mark Walker will be?

Marc Walker will be on Harmony per his Facebook post

CD schedule update: 
I’ll now be permanent on Harmony. Back on March 29 in Miami then I bring her to Port Canaveral in May. This means  I can see the kids every Sunday !! BingBong is back in town.

 

Steve Davis leaves Vision on Saturday and I've heard CeCe? will be CD starting Saturday.  I will try and confirm tomorrow

Thank you for taking this on Deltablue. Is there any chance you can change your font and/or colour. It looks great but my old eyes find it difficult to read

Marc is definitely on Harmony as of March 29. He confirmed that he will be Cruise Director on my June 30th & July 7th sailings so will be onboard at least until July 14th. 

 

No idea who is taking on Mariner now.

Unfortunately, your “signature look” is illegible.

Does anyone know who will be on Freedom of Seas June 30?  Is there a list of activity directors as well?

thanks!

Yes there is....skip to the last page and make any updates that you know.  As difficult as the CD is to keep updated, the Activity Manager list is moreso.   At least the name of the CD is on the officers list.  Many people don't realize that the AM often is more of an everyday visible on ships than the CD, especially the bigger ships.  Any help is appreciated.

Depends on the device.  I also have no problem reading the font on a PC, but it can be problematic on phones.

Ahhh. That could be the difference. I never use a phone for C.C. stuff.

If possible, my suggestion is to read CC (or at least this thread) on another device.  We have someone who is willing to take on this job, and I want DeltaBlue to know (s)he is appreciated, regardless of the font and/or color used. Just my 2 cents worth.
