Stuart was our CD on the Conquest for Thanksgiving week, 2004. We (me and my wife) thought he was great. Very informative and upbeat. His looks are a bit intimidating because he's built like an NFL linebacker, but he was great in my opinion. I think he was just filling in for the usual Conquest CD Steve Cassel. We liked Stuart's Australian accent as well.
Stuart Dunn was awsome, I was on the Glory during the 05 new years, and I though he was not only informative, but funny. The night before disemparkment, he made a comical comment akin to "Remember to pack something to wear on the day of disembarkment, I don't want to see you men walking off the ship in your wife's formal gown.", followed by laughing by the audience, then he commented "You laugh now... but I've seen people walk off this ship with no socks, or no shorts, it's unpleasant.
Whick naturally, I though was funny with his other jokes and such.
Others who complain about him probably got on his bad side, or got a few snakes as towel animals by the steward.
First of all let me say the people complaining about Stuart Dunn wouldn't know how to have a good time at Disneyland.I wouldn't want a job where you have to please thousands of travellers every week.Its tough, but i think Stu does a good job.The comments from some sound so jaded i think they were determined not to enjoy themselves.
kudos - i agree totally with Aloha - people complain about some of the most unbelievable things its like - your on vacation relax,,,,i would not want to be a cruise director! They do a good job and you will never be able to please everyone. I say lighten up!
