I’m really hoping Drew departs Adventure OTS before we get down there. Not at all loving the reviews I am seeing. Any idea if he is due to rotate?

AD seems to be his regular ship and he returned late Aug/early September so is likely on until the New Year.

Gah. I’ll give him benefit of the doubt that he was on a long run and had some negative remarks made about him because of that. His early reviewers had great feedback.

We're really looking forward to sailing on the Harmony of the Seas in a few weeks. I'm not familiar with the CD. for those who have had Marc as a CD, how would you say he rates?  I know some CD's are non-existent, which is fine. Others have a tremendously positive effect on the cruise. Just curious. Thanks.

Had him on Harmony in July - had high expectations of him going in from what I'd read and he was fantastic.

 

Very fun, energetic guy who brings an upbeat vibe to the ship. His Love & Marriage game show is also hilarious.

RHAPSODY:  Bill Bronckhurst  #1477
 

 

Was on the Rhapsody last last week. Was a bit disappointed in Bill. Very old-school CD, which would be really fine. But he hardly was around at all except for a Quiz or two and the 70's Disco. Mostly he sent his Activity Manager and/or his team. The same time last year we've had Elvis Pinto on the Rhapsody. He was great....he really rocked the boat. And was present a lot, great Zumba classes included (which he led).

Steve Davis took over from Mercedes on Vision for the TA. He told me he will be there for 8 months.

Hi Chiliburn, we had Chris on the Sydney to Hawaii repositioning cruise in April. He’s OK, but nothing compared to Joff!

Wow, 8 months is an unusually long contract.  That is very odd.  Usually it is a 4 month on and two month vacation, unless some "situation" happens and someone needs to be extended for a little bit....but for a 'contract length'....very odd.

Maybe when he told me 8 months....he didn't include the 2 month break in between??? He seemed very happy to be back!
