Thank you. I like Sue Denning and will be sorry that she is off. I have never met Ben from Australia. Do you know who the party band is?

Thanks again.

Hi Valerie,

 

I met Ben Powney onboard Eclipse. He boarded the ship about 1/2 way through the cruise, to shadow Sue Denning, and get a feel of the ship. As Ben has worked on a number of Celebrity ships in recent months, I suspect he fills in when other CD's are on vacation. I found Ben to be very personable and excited to be onboard Eclipse. He happens to enjoy Cruise Critic, so he must be good :). I appreciated that he wanted to meet the Cruise Critic members on our sailing (Ben wasn't onboard for the first meet and mingle), and helped coordinate a 2nd meeting, which was gracious of him & Sue Denning.

 

While it's tough to follow in Sue's footsteps, I hope Ben will do a great job.

I just heard officially that Sue left EC yesterday for vacation.

 

Yes. Ben Powney has replaced Sue as CD. Sue mentioned that she's returning to EC after her vacation.

Thanks! Any idea of who the Loyalty Ambassador is? We are expecting Ti-Anne to be back, but I haven't heard from her since the typhoon. She has been home since August and I've been worried! Did they say anything?

Sorry, I meant to include the Captain's Club Hostess. Ashley Whitaker. She is new but did a great job. Her husband is currently the Bar Manager on the Constellation and will be joining her on the Summit soon, if not already.

I know it's a bit OT, but we sailed on Ben's 1st cruise on a Galaxy TA in 2008, when he was part of the activities staff. I recall that while he was very personable, he sometimes looked like a deer caught in headlights. We've sailed with him a number of times since, & watched him grow into a very confident Cruise Director. It's nice to see someone grow into the job & rise up through the ranks.

Thanks much. I really liked Top Notch when I previously heard them. Hopefully Fusion will be as good. I also have received the entertainment lineup from Celebrity. In addition to Perry Grant, who we love, there will be American Idol finalists on the EC Christmas cruise along with comedian Tom Cotter who was a finalist for America's Got Talent. Should be a great entertainment package.

Glad to hear that her family is well. I'm surprised that she is on Reflection- when we saw her in July she said she'd be back on the Summit.

She was on Reflection for the 1 Nov TA and had two folks in training with her. I think she was on her way elsewhere soon if not already.
