Royal Caribbean's newest cruise ship that is under construction, Quantum of the Seas, has its cruise director picked and the lucky man is Jimmy Rhodes. Rhodes has been a cruise director for Royal Caribbean for 10 years now.
As cruise director, Rhodes said he will head all entertainment for guests 18 and older. In doing so, Rhodes said he will manage a team of about 120 dancers, musicians, youth and activities staff.
While Rhodes may be the full time cruise director for Quantum of the Seas, there are other reports that Richard Spacey will be the cruise director for Quantum of the Seas during its first few cruises, with Rhodes assuming the duties afterwards.
Quantum of the Seas' inaugural cruise is set for November 14, 2014 from Cape Liberty, New Jersey.
