What didn't you like about Edwin? We thought he was terrific on our Panama Canal Cruise! Well, he did have a set script that he used. People like Nick Weir just shoot from the hip and are really brilliant.
We loved Lenny on the Carnival Fantasy (Oct 2004). Todd (Conquest Oct 2005) was okay, but somewhat crude and geared more to younger audience. Our take on him was that he was trying to impersonate Seacrest on American Idol.
1st - Mark Price - he gave my special needs son his first "ship on a stick" for being "his favorite cruiser". I always get one from the talent show and oldest son always seems to win one in ping pong or something... special needs son never had won one. Mark found out (can't remember how now) and made sure that special needs son got one.
2nd - Peter Gibbs - sailed with him twice and he just sparkled!
3rd - Corey Schmidt - talked hubby into buying me a Rolex at Kirk's - Grand Cayman. That is where Corey buys his and hubby thought that was good enough for him. We have since discovered that of all the islands, they still have the best price.
4th - Paul Santley - what a sweetheart! We sailed with him twice and loved it both times. He is so down to earth and easy to talk to. Makes you feel like you are just one of the crew.
COMPLETES THE FLEET
If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!

Just got back from the NORWEGIAN DAWN today. Cruise director was MATT BAKER. He's the funniest man i have ever seen, and always keeps the party going! The great cruise was made EVEN BETTER when matt was our director! HE WAS AWESOME! We all love him! CHICKUH CHICKAH!
He made our trips really enjoyable and informative. We heard a rumor that he is getting married later this summer. Anyone able to confirm this and possibly the name of his fiancee (think she's a member of the Celebrity crew as well)? We'd like to send them well wishes and a congratulatory card.
RCCL Matt Baker Enchantment 2004
Most wacky enertaining man alive. Who is the guy he impersonates?
Austin Powers that's it. he was incrediable. And we hate Ausin Powers.
But we loved the heck outta him!
I was on the Enchantment OTS in October 2004 and had Matt (Wiggy! Wiggy! Wahh!) Baker, he was the best. Unfortunately, when I cruised on the Mariner OTS in 2005 (I don't remember the CD's name, but he also was Freedom OTS CD on it's 1st voyage), the CD on the Mariner told me Matt left RCCL and got a job in TV back in Great Britian.

We really liked Butch aboard the Liberty in January 06. He was actually Social Host I think, but he did the CD's job while he sat around and smoked. That guys name was Brent. Brent was dull, Butch was great! We found out on the last day too that he's from our home town.
