That was until I watched a re-play of L&M on our cruise. I tend to be more positive during and soon after the cruise.

The fact you walked off the ship having enjoyed yourself is ALL that should matter, however because you then months after watched a video on youtube you change your mind  and now you didnt enjoy it, simply because of a video. To me that doesnt make any sense! your constant critisism aimed at BB and telling people how bad he is may put people off, which is wrong, considering you yourself admitted that at the time you actually enjoyed BB and the cruise.

It's not all I discuss anyway, you just seem to enjoy criticizing my opinions.

No it's not you do metion other things but you somehow always manage to bring up BB by name or hinting at him saying you would get rid of him. 

Actually, FYI, I do a lot for my thread on CC, and try to transfer some of that onto here.

I dont think the majority of people here want to be like CC, which is probably why very few actually reply to your posts, somethings such as continous critisism is best left over there on CC! 

If you don't like it, make up your own list!

I couldnt care who CD or AM is when i cruise

I'm trying to reign back my opinions, but in all honesty, I recommend that you quit visiting this thread as we seem unable to agree on anything. 

So it's OK for you to continually critise but no one is allowed to point out that your attitude is wrong? You better hope no one from RC recruitment reads these threads as they will see someone who probably wouldnt fit in as a TEAM player on a ship, all other members would have to watch their backs given the fact you have admitted sending emails to RC about how bad BB is.  believe me as someone who recruits, everything including social media is checked to ensure the candidate is suitable.

Hello All,   I wanted to see if we could commence a running Cruise Director and Activities Manager list here on the Royal Caribbean Blog Boards.   As many of you know, the Cruise Director can be ver

I've had 3 people request access to the sheet. Please like this post to confirm if you are one of them, just so I am sure that they are real accounts and connected to the blog.

You are a brave soul for taking this on.  Thank you!!

You're blowing things a tad out of proportion there. I've promised to tone things down anyway, not for anyone else but so that I don't let my (admittedly very strong) opinions get in the way of my dream job. Let's just be civil with each other, as I'm a bit bored of arguing myself.

Hey @Joe01 do you know who will be the AM and CD on Symphony on the July 29 sailing and August 6 sailings? Hope Michelle is still on the ship then!

Activities Manager should be Margot van Erck. I haven't had her yet, but stay tuned as I am on SY in 2.5 weeks and will provide feedback.

Michele may still be there. I'll ask him in July. Hopefully he will be and you don't get his replacement.

Sounds good Joe, thanks for checking! Hopefully Margot van Erck will be an OK Activities Manager, isn't she new?

Hope Michele is there, or that Tim is his replacement (but i'm not counting on it), he really is fantastic!

We could care less who the flipping cruise director is on a cruise.  Itinerary is the main reason for going on a cruise.  And the shopping people can be a real joke.  Some  Cruise directors are really good and the bad ones are BAD.  

I agree with you on the itinerary (and ship in some cases) is the main reason to be on a cruise, but a good CD makes the experience much better for a cruiser. P&S are a joke indeed! Wish they would chill on us cruisers and let us relax on our vacation, not syphoned for money.

Margot has been AM for a few years now, mostly on Oasis.

Tim is not the replacement on SY. It will be Bobby Brown. Read through the thread to see my thoughts on him.

Tim Connor is awesome! I had the pleasure to sail with him on Allure. What a treat and a hoot! Laughed so hard at every event. Sadly, I think his OA class days are done for now. @Joe01 have you heard differently?

Same! We got to experience his awesomeness and comedic ways on Allure, this time two years ago. Hope he isn't done with the Oasis Class, he really is well suited for that class of ship in my opinion. But I do hope he blesses the others in the fleet with his Cruise Directing.

My favourite events with him were Belly flop and the Quest! I laughed so hard I cried several times 😂 Still remember it.

I don't know where he is over the Summer, but is back to Independence on September 22nd. Given that Indy has had a refurb and is doing more ports than OA/AL, I would say that it isn't a downgrade at all for Tim. You never know, he may end up on Harmony out of Port Canaveral next year.

I don't have the handover date. Hoping it will not be on either of my sailings. Fingers crossed that the schedule changes and you get someone else. That has happened before. Hopefully Margot is a high-energy AM, as Bobby needs an AM like Darryl or Tanya for much to work.

Any thoughts on who might end up on Harmony next March after Marc goes?

Marc's schedule has recently changed (not sure what yet), but currently the plan is that he is on HM Aug 4th until Oct 6th. Dru Pavlov has been rotating on HM recently, but he would probably be on vacation by March if he returns in October. Not sure who it will be. Possibly Tim? Marc will likely be your CD when you go on Symphony though.

I don’t think it will be Tim, Joff Eaton confirmed on his twitter account that he was leaving Indy 28th September and Tim Connor would be returning.

If he does 4 months on Indy from September 22nd to January, he could go to Harmony in March. Not impossible. I could see him going back to Canaveral as he has a young child and wife who live in the Orlando area.

That would be amazing if that was the case!  Just no BB for the second time on Harmony lol

Fingers crossed for you. I just hope that the schedule has changed and he is not due back on SY either. Without saying too much, he just isn't what I feel is CD material and certainly not a style that I would emulate if I got on ships myself. On the other hand, Tim is fantastic and I hope to have the opportunity to sail with him in the future. He used to be Activities Manager to Joff (one of my favorite CD's) so I am confident that I would enjoy him.
