Default Name of the captain of Enchantment of the Seas

I am trying to remember the name of the Captain of the Enchantment Of The Seas. i have a bet with a friend who says his name started with K and I say it was R. Of course, there are several captains and it depends on the date, but if people who read this message can remember the name of their captain, I am sure that I will know when I see the name. I know this is a silly request, but it is killing me because I cannot remember.

Thank you.

To the best of my recollection, Captain Tor Olsen should be the Master of the EN right now.

Dom Deluise and Burt Reynolds. Classic American stupid film from 70's or so. Captain Chaos is a Super Hero in the movie.

Oh, you have seen the movie and know who he is but never met him? I get it. I think I want to be a cruise ship Captain when I grow up. 8)

Thank you Roland. We sailed with Captain Olson on one trip but the name I am looking for is the Captain who was on the other trip we took.

I would suggest that Dave the Wave get a life. He obviously has nothing else to do but write nonsense.

Cruising is my life and until the next one I will be here writing nonsense. I have been on the Enchantment 4 times and love that ship!

Tor Olsen´s present reliever is Felix Ban. Else I remember that Per Arne Kjönsö and Gunnar Öien were Masters on the EN for a long time (2005-2006), if that is of any help for you? If you tell me when "the other trip" was, I might pin him down for you.

We sailed on the Enchantment on 9-29 of this year. The captain was Srecko Ban. He looked very young.

Thank you all. Unfortunately, the captain's name was different from the ones you all mentioned. Well, maybe it will come to me one day. He was about 60 years old (maybe a little younger). His wife also worked on the ship and her name was either Janet or Janice and she was South African.
All the details I remember but not his name!!!!!

You still haven´t mentioned when you sailed the EN. Hence, I´m sorry I can´t help you

From what you write, you were not on the EN, but the RD
Could it possibly have been Captain Trym Selvag and his lovely wife Chantal you are referring to

No, Roland

I am pretty sure that it was the Enchantment. Could it be Kjal Nordmo or something like that)? I remember now that his wife's name was Jennifer. We actually spent quite a bit of time talking to them.

It is really bugging me - it is on the periphery of my memory but is not surfacing and it is driving me nuts.

Looking at dispositions for EN the actual time shows Gunnar Öien as Master.
But as Staff Captain Kjell Nordmo

Bingo!! Thank you Roland! I do not know the difference between a Staff Captain or regular Captain, but it does not matter. At least it is off my mind now.

It´s a big difference. The Captain is boss onboard as Master, the Staff Captain is his right hand and number two in command.
You can read more about it in Kuki´s excellent article "What Is a Staff Captain Anyway?" here on Cruise Mates.
