John Heald (Senior Cruise Director) has a wonderful Blog and he posted last years (the last 6 months) schedule for us. He has said he will do that again when it becomes available.

Here is what we have from "word of mouth" (ie passengers) and of course this can change. Folks go on 2 months vacations and sometimes there are Assistant CDs who fill in from time to time. (Thanks Mr Pete)

I think my future husband...I mean Wee Jimmy, is on his holiday now. It should be about time for him to head back to a ship.

John Heald will be on the Splendor from its launch until early December. I had asked him if he would be the CD for my November 28th-Dec 6th Cruise and he said that would be one of the last ones he would be on before his Holiday.

Take Care
Ashley

Will John Heald be going back to the Freedom in December? We are on the NYE FreedomCruise on Dec 28th - Jan 3rd and were looking forward to having him as CD. If not, who will be the CD?

John Heald will be going on his vacation in December which usually last 2 months but can vary slighlty.

Based on that information he most likely will not be your CD in December.

Take care
Ashley
