I AM ONBOARD AZAMARA JOURNEY WITH GEOFF EDWARDS...
He said he knows Bruce Good (Bruce sends him on Seabourn all the time
) So Geoff called Bruce to see if he was staying on. Bruce replied "that remains to be seen..." according the Geoff.
My guess is a little morer pragmatic, Kuki. Carnival saw Princess and Cunard working well integrated, and fugured Holland America's people could handle a little more work without too much strain. So they are sending Seabourn there.
