2019 - List of NCL Officers, Hotel Director, Concierge, Crew, etc

Recommended Posts

Have had Elvina, Virginia, Anoop and Adrian, as my concierges in the Haven.  All were outstanding.  And, the best I’ve ever had....even including Hotel and Resort Concierges.

 

NCL does an excellent job of recruiting, promoting and training their Concierges.

Patrick Berido is concierge until end of November. Still TBD who replaces him.

 

Patrick is AHHH-MAZING! I had him as my concierge, also. Besides managing to get me all the restaurant times I wanted, he got me into shows early (right up front!), and saw me off the ship personally. Love that guy!

I am also looking to find out his last name. His first name is Dejan. He is awesome. I have a closer pic, but still can’t read his last name.5881F1C4-0893-41FC-9F5F-B5961F7982FC.thumb.jpeg.1dfe0d24ce76b2968c58f9682d4ef193.jpeg

I have seen this "request" before. I am always amused that it is being asked.

Why do folks need to know this? Especially for the crew? What difference does who is Captain make? Especially on ships that have over 4000 passengers?

Are you assuming that the people onboard really know you? Of course they will act like they do but honestly, 4000 people every week, you are not special enough to be remembered LOL

Agree,100 percent.

I actually stay in contact with some of the crew when I'm not sailing so yes, some of them do know me.  However, I usually don't need to send out requests for info as to who is onboard b/c I already know as far as the ones who matter to me are concerned. I imagine people ask because there are certain crew members who really make their cruise special and they hope to see them onboard. I personally do not believe there is anything wrong with that.

I have posted a couple of times on the crew for the Encore.  I have talked with a number of staff as well as I have seen many people who have said this person or that person will be on the Encore  however when will we see a actual list of the officers.

I heard Luz the cd has moved on to possibly the Sky.

Jeff Hernandez might be the replacement cd on the Gem.

Going on the Gem in October and I will post info on return. Luz is amazing and does a fabulous Tina turner tribute. So full of life. Going to miss her. I believe Jeff is new to being the CD.

Just got off Dawn where Luz had been Asst. CD.

promoted and now on Sun.

 

Richard Matic CD on Dawn and did fantastic job!

Thank you for sharing! How was Mark as GM. He was great as Senior Food & Beverage on the Bliss last November. Also how was Roberto as CD.

 

Asking because I am sailing in 13 days

Glad Roger is still Executive chef, amazing, and listens to passengers, very nice

Jeff was Asst CD on Gem last three weeks when I was on, returning to  general CD staff  as of Friday. But he did a superior job, he is on his way to a promotion.  Ferdie is the CD back from vacation.

Anoop  was amazing for my two weeks on the Gem that I just returned from, Genuine and  superior service.  I had Virginia in the past, she was amazing.

LOL!

 

Just so surprised about Papi's change of heart. HE was always saying NO NO NO he will not break up the "dream team" when I asked if he was going to go on the Bliss when she gets to NY.  Oh well, I wish him the best and good luck.

The dream team is not broken up - its now on HAL. He must have his reasons but I suspect that Musti and Errol are so happy would have played a great part in his decision process. HAL have actually got the best bar manager around now. So for us its HAL from now on to carry on the story. Tried it this summer and loved it.

 

Now will his sons follow ……….just saying

Who is the current Cruise Director on the Joy?

My contacts tell me that the CD is Dan Dan (not Dan the Man) and the ACD is Bianca (previously on the Sun).

That is unfortunate. Last time he was CD in a cruise I was on, he came across as insensitive, unfiltered and Dismissive. 😞

 

i really Hope they’ll do a Crew shuffle once the ship reaches Miami after it comes over from LA this month, but I doubt it
