Wish I could Paul but I don't know the man. All I can tell you is that I have a friend that knows him and she thinks he is a good choice.

3FOB5Paradise- That sounds like a good recommendation from you re:Josh as CD. We are going on it Jan.23/05 with our 2 kids(7,13). Can you give a bit of detail about what he is like:?American,British; why you think he is your favourite,etc. Thanks. Brenda

Thanks, I appreciate knowing. My family is taking the December 19 voyage and we want to laugh as much as we did on the Victory with John Heald and Wee Jimmy.

Hate to crash the party, but the current talk over on Cruise Critic says that Valor will be starting off with John Heald, not josh. Oh well, maybe Josh will take over after the first 4 months.

That just goes to show you which site has the better information. <VBG> Josh has been assigned to the Valor and is listed on the assignment sheet. To double check though I have a call in to the person who makes that decision to confirm it and make sure it has not changed.

If Josh Riffe is taking out the Valor, does that mean John Heald will be staying with the Triumph?

no, John is reportedly headed to Glory soon.
And when do you think you will be able to tell us? I'm interested in knowing why they took so long to give josh a ship to take out. Maybe taking a ship out will renew his enthusiasm for the job and make him stay more than just a few more years

I was on the Triumph in Feb 2004, and John Heald himself announced he would be transfering to the Valor (to try to get the bookings going). Maybe he changed his mind. John seems to have a following of his loyal fans.
