THE "QT" ON CRUISE DIRECTOR SCHARWTZ

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Please and thank you. I keep hearing about a cruise director named Schwartz. I believe he may have been my cruise director on a truncated itinerary on the Vista. Thanks to Irma. If mymemory serves me he was OK during the 4 night cruise but on disembarkation day got snarky with his announcements. I was getting my last breakfast in when he said something like: "Time to leave the ship especially those taking advantage of a last meal.

Was there a question? Did he say "I love you....I love you more" after his announcements?

Ha!  I’d find that announcement pretty funny!  (Because I’d definitely be getting a last meal before debarkation.)

I believe he is on our 14 day Breeze Journey cruise on Nov. 2nd.

 

I would like to hear opinions too...😁😁

We had Schwartz on one of our past cruises. I can't remember right now which ship we were on.  He was a lovely guy with a great sense of humor. I don't go out of my way to cruise with a CD, but I'd be calling it a bonus if one of my bookings had him as our CD.

Always!  Last year off Horizon, my friend had to get off the ship fast to get back online. Lets kust say I had "kittens." We ended up eatingbreakfast in Sobe called the Front Porch Cafe. Very good but very overpriced!

Then it wasn't him. He says it all the time. I spent a half hour with him talking hospitality business. He's a very interesting guyu. He use to say "Let the Schwartz be with you" from Mel Brooks Space Balls and he told me he got a cease and desist order from the studio.

I heard someone on board complained about his "I love you" statements, so he stopped using them. People suck.

He doesn’t say that any more. Similar to his previous the Schwartz be with you saying, he was told not to say it any more. I heard that directly from him on Breeze. I have also spent a little time talking to his parents; great people.

Schwartz is awesome!  I believe that at some point in life, a lot of people have become overly sensitive and lost their sense of humor.  He says this on every cruise that I have been on with him as CD, and he is not the only CD to say this.

He will be our CD on our upcoming Breeze cruise.   I am looking forward to seeing him.  Not to get too far off topic, is Dr E still around?

Got to know Steven Schwartz very well on the Breeze.  He is a wonderful human being.

Schwartz is my hubby's favorite CD.  We talked with him several times on the Breeze.  He is from Georgia, real southern charm, a little wacky at times like Dr E but not quite as over the top all day long.

Schwartz hosts the best aritum parties especially if he has a bar counter to use.

This is somewhat sorta off topic, but how do you find out who your CD for the cruise your are taking?

Thank you all for your replies. From what you are telling me, I hope to have him or John H. as CD. However, CD doesn't make or break my cruise. I chill and meet new friends.
