Current Cruise Director (CD) List

If you ever had Richard Spacey as a CD, you would not have asked that question.  Meet Richard Spacey...............

 

Richard Spacey as Borat

Richard Spacey - Evolution of Dance


Many of the cruise directors I've sailed with have faded into the ether of time, but Richard Spacey is seared into my memory as the most cringeworthy. We had him as cruise director on the Celebrity Equinox and he was attractive and inoffensive and performative in the most CD way possible (British, really into socks), with one off-putting exception.

Richard ended every *single* onboard announcement by whispering "oh, and one more thing... I love you" into the PA system in a creepy little kid voice. You'd be at the pool, and he pops up with the afternoon announcements like  "We've got bingo, and karaoke, and archery, so go out and have a great day... oh, and one more thing... I WUV U!!" 

The first time it happened we thought we misheard him, only later realizing it was some sort of schtick. We also thought we were the only people who thought it was weird until it came up chatting with strangers at the bar. The whole thing was so oddly unprofessional, it has completely altered the curve on "bad" cruise directors for me.

Are you the Clo who was Cruise Director on Regal Empress many years ago?

Afraid not @shipgeeks!  I hope someday to meet my namesake someday as I hear she is a great CD 🙂

she is (or was if she’s no longer a CD) one of our favorites. (Hello Clo)

 

She is definitely one of the best!!!  Very friendly and enjoyable to chat with.

look him up on FB. He’s one of our favorite CDs. We’ll see him in August. Not sure if he will be there in December.

If you ever hear ‘Bing Bong’, that’s him.  He’s very personable and you see him everywhere.   I’ve been lucky enough to have him as my CD a couple of times. Hoping to have him again in October.

It was fun following him and his life during the cruise lock down.  Very nice guy.  We were on this last cruise on Majesty, would welcome him as CD on any future cruise.

Have never heard of Cory Rogers …. Any insight 

He is AWESOME! Came from Carnival. He is younger but manages to bring everyone in to have fun. I hope to sail with him again.

I met Cory when he came aboard Grandeur to shadow John Blair.  I thought he was very nice and personable, which are positive traits for a good CD.  Would love to cruise with him again some day.
