Default Cruise directors....

Who is best cruise director in the Carnival fleet in your opinion and do you know how to find out who the director on an upcoming cruise will be?? The two that stand out to me is Wee Jimmy (currently on Glory), and Big Tex (was on Fantasy in April...not sure now?).

We REALLY liked Butch Begovich recently on the Conquest! I'm not sure if he ever slept and he had so much energy

I thoroughly enjoyed Butch as well, but on the Victory in April. He was wonderful and friendly and soooo energetic!

When I sailed the Valor Ryan Fitzgerald was doing his first week as a CD. He did an awesome job.

I really can't say I have a "favorite" because the CDs we have cruised with have all had their special qualities.

Love Big Tex. (Jeremy) He is still on the Fantasy and will be there until the end of January 2008. His dance moves are not to be missed.
Love Malcolm Burn. He paid special attention to our Special Needs son.
Love Marc Price. He gave our special needs son his first Ship on a Stick.
Love Paul Santley. Probably the most visible CD we have sailed with, Loved talking with him every night.
Shawn was excellent (she is loved by her co-workers and a ball of energy)
Jeff Brooonsoon was a character.
Risa Barnes is a hoot. You never see her without a smile on her face.

We sailed with Todd when he was a social host and look forward to sailing with him as a CD in the future. I predicted he would make CD status.

I cannot remember Lenny's last name. He was on the Fantasy October 2004. He was great.

John Heald is also very good, although, I think that some of his "skits" are a little predictable and that he uses a lot of audience "plants" in his shows. Still very funny though.

Question on Big Tex. We saw him on a prior cruise - maybe the Sensation or Conquest. If he is leaving the Fantasy at the end of January, does anyone know who is replacement will be?

I also loved Malcolm Burn on the Victory (wooohoooo) but I have only cruised once before.
