Exactly. John Heald is widely regarded as the best CD on any ships Carnival or otherwise.

No, Troy is good from what I have heard but CCL's top CD is John Heald with Cory "the bird man' Schmidt considered #2. Remember this is over all and not what everyone thinks.

Steve Castle is the cruise Director on the Victory right now Salem. He can be a little over the top but he is good. He does do a juggling act one night that you should not miss. He amazed many onboard and got a standing ovation both times we saw him on our back to back in January. Do not miss his juggling act it is well worth seeing.

I was sad when Peter (of course, I forgot his last name) retired. We sailed with him twice and his bedtime story was not to be missed!!

John Heald is the "BEST" cruise director. I've had the pleasure to sail with him twice and hope to again before he retires. It will be impossible to replace him. If you get the chance to sail with him before Nov. 2003, please do so.

John Heald is over rated !! His act never changes. Michael Mullane on the Legend is the best we've had in five Carnival cruises.

Does anyone think that Shaun Bussy is in the top two or three. She sure gets my bet as the prettiest cruise director. By the way how many cruise directors are women

Default Loved Troy Linton!

I loved Troy Linton on the Imagination 10/00. He and Simon were sooooo funny! I have a great pic of the two of them while we were disembarking. I've only been on 3 cruises, but he was definately one of the best. Where is Troy now?

Steve Cassell - Great juggler, lousy CD.

Just got back from the Victory (2/15-1/23) and Steve was the CD. He was not funny and didn't offer any information of value.

I didn't care for Troy much when we sailed the Pride last year. He was cordial enough and energetic but he was totally lacking in the organizational department. Many activities were taking place at a different time or place than he reported. Clearing immigration in St. Thomas was a nightmare with a line of people the full length of the ship when he instructed everybody to report to the lounge at 8:30 to make sure you get through the process in time for 9:30 shore excursions. Stuff like that made me think he was not prepared.

Regards,
Thomas

Is the Peter that retired Peter Gibbs? We had him as our cruise director on our honeymoon and he was just great.

We were on Shawn Bussey's last sailing on the Paradise. She is on vacation right now and will be on the Spirit for Hawaii and Alaska.
