The current CD for the Liberty is Steve Knisley. He is really cute, really funny, and Canadian!!!!

I must admit, the Liberty has some damn cute staff working on the ship....do make a note and check out the maitre d of the golden restaurant (tall, bald, muscular, and oh so yummy!!!!)

We had Steve on the Holiday and he was good, Just came off the Destiny and the CD is Jorge, He will crack you up... He has been the most down to earth CD we have had yet. Most seem to be so far up cloud nine but Jorge was out and mingling even on the sun decks saying hi. He is actually a funny comedian also. I hope he reads this all I can say Is Dan and the Fart Machine......

Don't get excited if you already have had the cd you are having on your next cruise becuase the cruise director could leave at any time.

I was just on Destiny and never saw the CD in person. The assistant CD, a guy from Canada, is wonderful! I was on Liberty last May and the CD was pretty good.

Tina Noble just left the Legend yesterday, 11/02/2008 and I think she told me she was heading to the Imagination. I don't know who will be replacing her on the Legend, or where Karl with a K will be heading?

X2 for Steve!!!!! We got off Liberty 2 weeks ago. We are also Canadian, and also felt Steve did an excellent job of representing our country and threw in a few jokes for Canada.

He said there was to be a puff and puke the last night of the cruise for all the americans who bought cuban cigars and you're not allowed to bring them into the US. Then said but Canadians can bring in 50 cuban cigars into Canada YEAAAAAAAH! But unfortunatley we have to go through the US first, so the Canadians will also be at the puff and puke! Very funny!

We are going on the Legend on December 12th; since Tina Noble left who has taken her place?

I tried to find this information online without success; where can you get information on what cruise director is where?

thanks..

having a good cruise director can be fun I suppose but am I the only one who doesnt give a rip about who is on my ship? I have a great time no matter what so they can eliminate the postion as far as Im concerned. I couldnt tell you the name of a cruise director the day after I get off the ship. To me he or she adds nothing to my enjoyment...

briguy,

I too don't really care who the cruise director is. It is up to me to make sure I have fun and no matter who the cd is, not them. They are important in that they do have to be sure to have as many activities as possible for the passengers and that they are staffed correctly but still no matter who it is it is the passengers responsibility as to what to do or not do.

In the past, I've never cared who the CD was on a ship...and to be honest, I wasn't too excited about this Liberty cruise after reading Steve Knisley's profile on the Carnival website. HOWEVER, having just come off the Liberty two days ago, I can fully admit that I was wrong on all points. Steve and his assistant James were a hoot, and I loved their "live" call-in shows of a morning and afternoon that were broadcast on the cabin TV's. (Think Regis and Kelly, but way more gay and snarky!) Their enthusiasm seemed to be contagious, and I didn't hear a bad word said about the entire CD staff. I'd be happy to cruise Liberty again knowing that Steve was still the Cruise Director and running the show.

Default struck a few nerves

It seems I struck a few nerves asking about the cruise director but seeing as this post was about cruise directors I thought it was appropriate. I do agree that I am responsible for my own fun and I couldn't tell you the name of the cruise director on my first cruise. I am just curious and interested to learn everything I can about my cruise since it is only my second and I am very excited to be cruising again.

thanks for the replies anyway.

Terri
