Default comics

When we sailed on the voyager in 2004, there were people on board called Cruise Comics. When we sailed in 2006, there were not any. Does anyone know if they have discontinued that all together or if some ships still have them.

No more Cruise Comics on RCCL ships. Too bad because they were really funny.

the krooze komics program was started with the Voyager class ships - 4 folks who could juggle, mime, clown, improv and skilled in various circus arts. in 2004 they cut down to 2 per voyager ship and they pretty much cut the program in 2005 - only bringing it out for inaugurals and other special events. Some of the komics are still in the fleet - installing the "Mystery Dinner' in Portofino's with every new cast that comes on.

Perhaps the most 'infamous' ex komic is Steve-O from the Jacka$$ movies - if you happened to be on the Voyager in the first year, you probably saw him

I too was sadened to hear they are no longer, I thought they added something to the cruise, very funny. It was also nice while waiting for the nightly show to start, to have them entertain us. I hope in the future, Royal Caribbean re-thinks this one.

I truly doubt it (I know several of the komics and casting folks)

It's all about the $$$
