I read on another board that two of Corey's star birds(Daisy and Blue) recently passed away and his show has been postponed until some time this winter. I feel really bad for him it's difficult enough when you lose a pet, but these were also important to his livelihood(sorry about the spelling here) as well.
If its true about the birds then maybe Corey will return. I can't imagine that he has much material without the bird show or making laughs at cruise guests. His shows were very good. We saw him twice and both times he used the same stuff. There is not a better cruise directer out there and Carnival or RCI should try to get him to return to cruising.
