Don't worry, many people have confused the two, because of the similar CC names, over the years.  

I made the same blue a couple of times, Stu and David, who's who.

Did anyone from cc actually cruise with David and his partner?  He had stopped cruising for some time because of ill health which was such a shame as he was well travelled.  I used to enjoy his list of future cruise bookings.  As I'm a last minute cruiser, I'd be lucky to be on his list for a month or two, but I used to admire people who were on the list forever (pre Covid).  The last time I asked David a question, he didn't answer.  I now know why.

He was great with his cruise lists. Made great reading for a cruise fix. David joined CC in 2001 and contributed over 20,000 posts. He never really disagreed with anyone on here, even me !!  RIP.

So sad, heart felt condolences. He was so organized and it was a pleasure to read who was going where, and when along with all his news clips and ship locations. A legend.

Thank you for the update.

 

I offer my sincere condolences to David's family.

 

Our whanau had the wonderful joy of cruising with David on our first family cruise on the Diamond Princess.

 

David was always gracious, in person & on the boards.

 

I really enjoyed his photos and banter.

 

David will be greatly missed.
