Default When can we find out who our cruise director will be?

We are sailing to Eastern Caribbean in Oct 08 on FOTS and wondering if Richard something will be our cruise director. Any ideas how to find this out?

Ken Rush took over CD duties on the Freedom until 9/21 then Richard Spacey will be back on the Freedom.

So yes you will have Richard Spacey! He is the best!

Last fall, we had Casey (can't remember last name) on the Sovereign. He really helped "make" the cruise what it was.

Any idea if he is still on the Sovereign and if not, his whereabouts now? I find the CD's to be an interesting group. They have to have be extremely multi-talented and know every aspect of the ship like the back of their hand. They have to be great organizers and also have acting/hosting abilities too.

What a great question. We will be on the Independence of the Seas in March 09 but have no idea how we find out who the CD is. Does Royal Caribbean post that information somewhere?

Should be Captain Rob Hempstead.

As of now he is on vacation so assuming Royal sends him back to the Grandeur after his vacation around Sept.

If you booked with a travel agent you can always ask them to call their rep and they can find out. I am a werite not an agent but I have the same contacts so if you don't have an agent, I can find out for you. Just let me know which ship and date.

Ken Rush has traditionally been the CD who brings out new ships and when he emceed the June Reveal in NYC, he indicated that he will once again fill this role when Oasis is introduced.
There are threads on another cruise board which list the captains and the CDs for the various RCI ships and the dates that they will be onboard.

Just had Allan Brooks. He is funny. For me other then Rich Spacey none of the CD really stand out. They all tell the same jokes and do the same things. I wonder if they all take the same course.....
How to be a CD 101.

Anyone else out there with me and wish the CD's would come up with different more original stuff.

Getting tired of "the top 10 dumb questions asked by passengers" and day one show "are you ready to have the vacation of a lifetime?"

My next CD will be James Andrews.

I see that Simon Baker is on that list, I beieve he is the brother of Matt Baker who was my CD on the Enchantment OTS in 2004. I know Matt quit RCI, I think he is now with NCL, but not sure.

Let put in a plug for one of my favorite CDs, John Blair on the Vision OTS. He is not a particularly funny guy, but he is original, has a great singing voice and puts on a great show! He is one of the most entertaining CDs I ever sailed with. On our Alaska cruise last year, I ran into him and his wife, Katrina, on deck one night and got to chat with them over a couple of drinks after the BBQ. I really enjoyed talking RCI and cruising with them for about an hour. If you ever get a chance to take a cruise with John Blair, take it!

Mike Hunnerup is pretty good, not totally outstanding but definitely one of the better ones. James Andrews is great. It does not surprise me that he will take over on Oasis. Don't know a Simon Baker but do know a Simeon Baker who is the brother of Matt. Met the baker boys and their Dad on Simeons first contract as CD on Mariner. Simeon got Norwalk virus and was quarantined. The Assist CD tried to take over but Matt ( on vacation that week) stepped in. I still get emails from their Dad but no news on Matt moving to NCL. Possibility though.

I never cared two cents who the CD was on any ship I ever sailed on UNTIL - FOTS with Richard Spacey. He was the one who made the cruise so much fun to be on. He stands alone !
