Default anyone cruised the Spirit to Alaska - have question

Who is the cruise director on the Carnival Spirt for this year crusing? I think the CD makes or breaks a cruise in a sense and I hope we have a good one. The trip we just went on didn't have a great CD. WE are going in September...thanks

Right now it's Michael Mullane, but I believe Shawn Bussey's coming back. Neither are that good in my opinion, but the CD's definitely do NOT make or break an Alaska cruise.

I agree - but I wish we would have a CD like the one we had on the Conqest (Stewart something). I enjoy a laugh until it hurts night. Are the assistants good? That helps too

We did not care for Michael, but on the Alaska cruise, the CD just did not matter as much to us as on Caribbean destinations.

thats a relief........but I do enjoy the CD and the jokes they come out with. I have been to one talent show that was so hilarious that I actually bought the tape! The CD was awesome (Stewart was his name).

I have been on 18 ships and 23 cruises and I honestly can't tell you one since CD name! They all tell the exact same jokes -- if I hear the 10 funniest question from cruisers one more time! I mean really do these stairs go to the front of the ship is slightly funny once and after that....

I did find that the jr CD did 95% of activities and he is young and it showed but he did fine for a person in a job the audience wishes would just move on - in bingo, games etc. One bingo game a guy actually said "JUST CALL THE NUMBERS" and another voice says,"yes PLEASE" but the corny jokes continued

Maybe it is different at the talent show (I've never gone) but the CREW talent show he just introduced them.

Don't get me wrong they were all friendly I just feel I could complete a cruise and never need to see or hear the CD the entire time and not miss a thing. Maybe I am?

After 18 ships and 23 cruises, I don't blame you! Totally agree. After this last one (which was my 6th) I felt it was just me -- same ol same ol with the jokes....guess its not! How many cruises do you go on a year??

I've been on 33 cruises and I think with the interest in Alaska outside the ship, you may have even a less interest. I hardly ever go to any shows on Alaska cruises (11), since I am up very early and do my "shows" outside the ship.
