Brett Alan is the cruise director 2 wks ago. If you are lucky, he will have moved on by December. Let just say, he wasn't our favorite. He had a couple of assistants that were much more enjoyable and friendly.
We had Brett in May, and he's one of the top annoying in the fleet, and fully taken with himself. Like a comedian who should get the hook.
Had him once before, and cringed when we found he was on our sailing.
We avoided everything he hosted. And then cringed when he was showing up on many CC channels.

Brett Allen is next in seniority to John Heald so has been there for a very long time. I have also sailed with Brett and talked with him some. Unfortunately I have to agree with Pete. The ship is very nice and he has some great assistants so no reason to avoid a ship that he is CD on but I will be happy when he retires.
I didn't think Brett Allans was a bad as I expected. But maybe since I had read so much about him before hand, I was wasn't expecting much. I have certainly sailed with much better CD's. Anyway I think he should be due a vacation soon. When I sailed back in the beginning of May he was just back from vacation. He was still onboard when I sailed in Oct. So with any luck he'll be going again soon.

I would never let the cd of a ship decide for me if i am going on it or not. Truthfully i couldnt even tell you the name of the cd on the Fascination. We loved the Legend and the staff was excellent. The food at the Rottisarie was to die for!! Enjoy! (you get used to all the urns really fast ) I have some pictures of the legend in the gallery under Carnival Legend Dec 15-23 2003
