Off the Equinox TA 12/9:

 

Captain Panagiotis Mantzavinos

Damian is always around working somewhere but felt sometimes he was a bit OTT. He has been with Celebrity 11 years.

I have learned that Damian has resigned for life on land.

Was there a hint that another person was about to take over as CD?

Thanks for the update.

Enjoy Captain's Table.

On our last cruise, dinner came from the specialty dining kitchen, and our names were printed on the menu.

 

Any word on what staff thinks of the reposition from Asia to Europe. Any insight from the Captain about European itineraries would be great.

The December 9th sailing was Damian's last. He did not mention who was taking over for the December 20th sailing.

See as a Captain's Club host(ess) on Summit, Ashley W. a relatively new name for that position. By chance, does anyone if this Ashley is a gentleman who was once a member of an a capella group on Equinox and then changed to sales on Constellation?

 

Thanks to Arno for bringing back the 'at a glance' chart.

Ashley Whitaker is relatively new to Celebrity and she worked in Guest Relations prior to becoming CC Hostess. Her husband is the Bar Manager. Previous experience was with Club Med in Florida.

Appreciate these great update!! BUT, we are now less than three weeks till we will be boarding the Solstice in super spectacular Sydney harbor for our Jan. 20-Feb. 3 Sydney to Auckland cruise. For our Jan. 9 flight out, it's only one week away. Getting closer!!

 

Any added info for who is now on the Solstice? We had in June 2011 in the Med on the Solstice Captain Gerry Larsson-Fedde, Hotel Director Sue Richardson and Cruise Director Paul Baya.

 

I'll be doing a live/blog on the Celebrity board with lots of pictures, travel details. Don't know that I'll get 100K+ in views like on our last two cruises, but it is fun sharing, getting good comments and questions, etc.

 

THANKS! Enjoy! Terry in Ohio

 

Did a June 7-19, 2011, Celebrity Solstice cruise from Barcelona that had stops in Villefranche, ports near Pisa and Rome, Naples, Kotor, Venice and Dubrovnik. Enjoyed great weather and a wonderful trip. Dozens of wonderful visuals with key highlights, tips, comments, etc., on these postings. We are now at 156,987 views for this live/blog re-cap on our first sailing with Celebrity and much on wonderful Barcelona. Check these postings and added info at:

Just wondering if anyone knows what happened to Maria and if she is still working for Celebrity. When we cruised with her she was the best activities manager and felt she was a tremendous asset to Celebrity. However, i have seen some very negative reviews on her from 2012. I hope she didn't get fired. Anyone know?
