I think that Risa Barns is the best CD..We had her on the Elation last July! I also think that Chris Roberts is...we had him on our cruise on the celebration in may 2003!

Wow, the staying power of some of these folks is amazing ... which is also a fair indication that the "Company" feels they're doing their job or at the least - not hurting the experience for us.

My cruise out look is: ATTITUDE! I'm going to have a great time regardless. We project our attitude and to a degree influence those who in turn are waiting on us. Whenever possible "roll with the punches" life throws at you.

Thoroughly enjoyed George the Greek on the Tropical in 2000.

The CD on the Esctsay last week was Rebecca. She was wonderful, and very helpful. I didn't know that people didn't go on cruises if they had the one they didn't like. She had meetings, did some of the Lido stuff, and was recorded for the t.v. if you couldn't make the meetings. I would guess that all of them have different personilitys, and some that are better to be around, than others, but as long as they know their job, I'm cool.

Tony, Jeff Bronson is supposed to be on the Imagination right now.
Michie, you went too soon. I understand that Matt Goodwin will be off that ship, (Fascination), at least for a bit starting this week or next and my pal "Wee Jimmy" will be acting CD onboard. Ralph is a hoot and one of CCL's rising stars.
Erin, Todd is supposed to remain on the Conquest until July 31st.

WOW!! It was great to see someone mention Mark Price. He was by far the best cruise director I've ever cruised with. My friends and I had a glass of sherry with Mark in Stipes Disco on the Ecstasy when it used to sail out of Florida. Hee hee!! Does anyone know what happened to him?

Kissel,
Mark is indeed a nice guy and I have heard many nice things about him from those that have sailed with him. He is currently onboard the Glory as the CD and should be there throough Sept when our Cruisemates Group Cruise sails with him. It will be the first time I actually met him face to face but we have been e-mailing each other for almost a year and have become pretty good friends so we are both well looking forward to this cruise. I will tell him of you remarks as he does enjoy seeing them knowing he pleased people.
Bmaintz, Yes, Todd will be onboard the Conquest in October as far as we know right now. I say this because things do change from what the plans are sometimes and I don't want anyone getting mad saying that I gave them bad info. I am just saying what is 'supposed' to be happening. <G>
Jim

Jim,

We are sailed on the Sensation on the 3rd of March and had Shawn for our CD. We are going back again on the 10th of November. Any idea if it will be Shawn again or will it be someone different?

You need to change the Pride's cd to Lenny Anderson...we got off on the 19th and he was our cd...wished we had someone else.

Bushwacker, No, Shawn will not be your CD. You will be very lucky and sailing with two on my good friends and a wonderful couple and great CD and ACD. That is Jen and Michael Mullane! Really a treat to be sailing with those two and they work so great together. Both are Brits and Michael is a singer and Jen was a dancer on ships. Count your blessings as you are very lucky indeed to have these two.
Jim

Does anyone know where Larry Gartzluo is now? He was on the Ecstacy last December and was great. Is there a chance that he will go back to the Ecstacy or Elation anytime soon?

Dear Stacy,

I happened to see your message on CruiseMates.com and just thought I'd let you know that you will be missing Joshua Riffe as your cruise director by a week....he signs back on beginning August. A friend.

I was told that the Destiny CD would be on vacation during the month of July. Does anyone know who or how they decide who replaces he CD while they are away?

They have CD's that can step in while someone is on vacation and they also have Asst CD's on a number of the ships who 'take over' the job for the month or so the regular CD is off. That also gives the company a chance to see how they do by themselves. I do not know who is going to fill in for Mara that month.

We did not enjoy Mara at all. We've had three other Carnival CDs who were terrific. This guy needs a vacation. He was rude and abrasive and not at all likable.
