WHO'S ON BOARD: Officers, Staff and Crew

Recommended Posts

Esperanza was CD on Solstic may 2013. Most inconspicous and ineffective CD imaginable:(

 

Now that does surprise me. She was such a fantastic Activities Manager. I just can't imagine her ever being inconspicuous or ineffective!

Not just me that said it. In fact one of the very experienced F & B staff said it was the first cruise he had been on without a CD !

We love Simon and Nick. Good to hear they are still linked with Celebrity. We had the best on board experience and the best entertainment when the brothers were on board.....

Hi, just got off the Silhouette and staff were as follows:

 

Capt: Emmanouil Alevropoulos - who was fantastic

Staff Capt: Vittori Cantu

Guest Relations Manager : Cameron Robertson

Chief Engineer: Konstantinos Pechlivanidis

Hotel Director: Bradley Pavlik

Cruise Director: Lisa Richards - the best we've had yet

Activities Manager : Tyler (can't remember his last name but he was fabulous!)

Food and Beverages Manager: Koray Savas - very high profile

Executive Chef: Anthony Wilson - the food was the best so far.

 

Have to say, out of 3 cruises on Silhouette it was the best one yet. Thanks to all.

 

Who was the Captain's club hostess?

 

Thanks,

 

Monica

The whole cruise / staff/ passengers was the best we have experienced out of the 3 on Silhouette. We are still sad that we have had to leave her -- you will have a fabulous cruise experience. Enjoy it while it lasts. :)

I was wondering if anyone knew what ship Nikola Havidic, the Restaurant Manager, is on? We sailed with him last summer on the Millenium and in May on the Eclipse. He is wonderful and my husband and I just love him.

Does anyone know the whereabouts these days of the Weir brothers, Simon & Nick? The last I heard, Simon had traded ships for CEL corporate life in Miami. Haven't heard anything about Nick.

 

Simon Weir has moved over to Royal Caribbean, and I believe he's in charge of their Hotel Operations. Sorry to see him leave Celebrity, but certainly wish him all the best in his new position.

Not if he takes all the good HDs with him... ;)

 

I wonder if he had a hand in Bernhard moving over?

Just shows how tastes differ. We find JC to be the most obnoxious cruise director on Celebrity.

I'm with you on this! He was on Constellation last cruise (and this current one) and I thought he was an idiot. He thinks he's very funny, and if he'd stopped laughing at himself, the morning shows could have been 5 minutes shorter. Even worse, he ruined the newlywed/not-so-newlywed show by wasting 15 minutes at the start just talking to the couples! He ended up running out of time and not being able to to the 2nd round where the wives get asked questions and the husbands have to guess the answers! I've never seen that before.

 

I also find his using initials and not his real name to be ridiculous.

 

I usually don't care much one way or the other about CD's but really disliked him.

 

Update - I see the JC being referred to earlier was a "James Cox". Ours only went by JC so I'm not sure if it is the same person and perhaps he's decided to go incognito.

Good question Arno, but I doubt we will get an answer on that one :)

Yes it is the same on. He has always called himself JC as far as I know. Unfortunately we had him on 2 different cruise ships (Eclipse and Infinity). We are on the Equinox in November for a back to back, hope he hasn't changed to Equinox by November.

The end of August and the chart is almost complete. Century's staff is the most likely to be out of date..

This is a picture of James Calhoun a CD with Celebrity:

Perhaps the JC is not James Cox but James Calhoun?

Yes, that looks like him (I can post the picture from the sheet, if necessary). BTW, I read his bio and it says he used to have a band "Jamie Frasier & The Majors" so I was thinking that might be his name. Maybe not.

 

I did mention how much I disliked him on my comment form.

I last saw Nick Weir on Seabourn in 2009, he was the CD. Wow, that name brought up memories!

Personal Information Jamie Frasier’s illustrious career has led him from international acclaim on world class cruise lines to the kaleidoscopic world of high profile corporate entertainment. Since his childhood Jamie's unique vocal ability and charismatic nature has captivated audiences the world over. Now at 29 years young, Jamie is in his prime and stirring up the Nations capital with his very own sensational band "The Majors". Comprised only of the finest musicians this 8-18 piece 'Supersonic Swing' band are currently taking London by storm, bringing back the fast paced, energetic classics of the 40’s, 50’s & 60’s.

When I saw him and asked about the initials, I asked if he was in witness protection or something (which is the excuse I use when refusing onboard pictures - can't take credit for it, I got it from someone else here on CC). He chuckled (not his usual excessive laugh) but didn't give me an answer as to why he just used initials.

Perhaps he thinks he can walk on water? ;)
