According to the list supplied by John Heald, Paul Santley is the regular CD aboard Conquest, but he's going on vacation on Sept. 25th, and will be replaced by Tevor Black at that time. Actually, I've sailed a LOT, but don't think I've sailed with either of these gentlemen. Maybe someone else can fill you in on what to expect. In any case, I'm sure you'll have a GREAT cruise. Bon Voyage.
