Default Who's the CD on Freedom

Hello All,

I just wondering, who's scheduled to be the CD on Carnival Freedom for the September 12th cruise this year? Also, your thoughts on this CD.

Thanks

It was Todd Wittmer on our Freedom cruise in February.

He was the best CD we have had in four cruises so far.
Much better than the much hyped "Wee" Jimmy on the Glory.

I had heard that he is scheduled to be the CD when the Dream begins sailing.
Don't know when he'll leave the Freedom to get ready for that.

We had Todd also and I really like him. He did a really fun morning show. We got into the habit of watching in the mornings.

From what I read, Todd is scheduled to be on the Carnival Dream right about that time.

Currently, John Heald is on the Freedom. But I believe he leaves August 29th.

He called DJ for his 18th birthday on Tuesday from the Freedom. (Those satelite phones are spooky sounding!!

Ralph Valente (Wee Jimmy) will be your CD.

I have heard wonderful things about him....enjoy!!!

Wow, we just missed John Heald by two weeks. I heard so much about him that I was hoping to connect with him on one of my cruises. What luck!!

The earlier post didn't seem to like Wee Jimmy. Any other comments from someone who cruised with this guy.

My Wife and I were unimpressed by Wee Jimmy on the Glory, but I will say he has a HUGE fanbase in here and on other boards, so he might be your cup of tea.

CD's are a pretty individual taste to each person.

We were just happy to see Todd Wittmer get promoted to Carnival's newest flagship after how much we enjoyed our cruise with him.
So apparently others have been enjoying his work also.

Thanks Rrdlouhy,

That's a great link and I see it will be Ralph Valente (Wee Jimmy) as mentioned earlier. We'll see what he's like in a couple of month.

Happy cruising!!!!!

I loved Wee Jimmy on the Glory. He's such a character. Funny, quick wit, and memorable. He made my cruise as fun as it was. I think he appeals to almost any type of person regardless of age or sex.
