Matt Baker when he was on the Enchantment OTS, unfortunetly, he is no longer with RCI.

Ken Rush. He was great on the Navigator in April, 2005. I am SO hoping he will be on Freedom this December, 2007.

Ken is probably not on the FR in December. He is on the take out team and has already worked the FR. Please try the LB coming spring, if you want Ken as CD.

Hi Roland,
Do you think KR will still be on Freedom in 2 weeks? I did cruise with him once and truly enjoyed his work, was hoping he'd still be the CD on Freedom??

Thanks,

This is an easy one: Becky Thompson from England. She is currently aboard the Mariner. She started with RCCL as a dancer and moved on up. She trains the guests on the opening night to always greet her with "Hello, Love!" (in British accent, of course) and by the end of the week, that phrase becomes contagious. 3 weeks after our cruise, and my wife and I are catching ourselves (not on purpose) saying that to each other when we walk in the house. Besides that, this girl has got a TON of energy and was a blast to watch at work. I hope we have her again some day!

Our runner-up would be Kirk Detweiler who was on the Serenade in August 2005...not sure if he's still there.

On the Radiance OTS there was a lady her name was Clodah. I can't think of her last name. She was Irish. She had a wonderful accent. I do remember KR and Becky and the others. My vote goes to Clodah. Standby i'll go through my Compass to get her last name

I had the pleasure to sail with "Bouncing Becky Bingo" on her last cruise as an assistant CD. She was leaving to become a CD on another ship the next week. That girl has SO much energy! She was a lot of fun.

My vote is for Clodagh O´Connor. As the CD on our first cruise, she set the standard high. She was so entertaining, always had us rolling with laughter. When we went on a Carnival cruise this last April, we were so disappointed with the CD because he didn't come close to matching her in anything.

Gordon is very good, but have not heard from him since October last year when he was working on the LG

DENFINATELY, NO CONTEST, MATT BAKER!!!! He is absolutely awesome, doing flips and jumps all the way to the stage every night. Great austin powers and so funny. I hate to see he's not with enchantment anymore. Clodah was my second favorite, in 2004, she was the CD for explorer of the seas.

Thanks,
Donna, Becky Thompson joined the Freedom of the Seas on July 15th, I had her as a CD of my recent mariner cruise, Also, I'd Have to say Becky is my favorite because she was full of energy and was a great person to talk to along with Capitan Johnny Faevlen.

Ken Rush is the only one that I can even remember so he must have done a very good job. I do remember telling hubby that he was a great CD.
