    The best, most energetic, friendliest CD I have ever had is on the Freedom of the Seas. His name is James Andrews, and he is from Australia. Until we met James, my favorite was Clo. Watch out Clo, you've got some competition! :

    Graham Seymour got married in the summer of 2006 and now only does fill-ins as CD. I was fortunate enough to be on one of the last cruises he did on Navigator of the Seas and he really was terrific.

    I was on NOS again during the November 4-11 Eastern Carib cruise and happened to peek inside the TV studio control room window on deck 3 near the entrance to Studio B. There on the console was none other than...
    Hammy!!!!

    Hammy is of course the toy hamster that Graham often used during his "Be Very Afraid" morning show. I believe it sang "Kung Fu Fighting" and was asked rude questions about Richard Gere but that's another story...

    Anyway I am attaching photographic proof that although Graham is no longer CD on NOS, Hammy is still very much there.

    'Sup!

    Does anyone remember Paul Rutter. Is he still with RCI in some capacity?

    If I don't know the answer I'm fairly certain I can find it.

    I liked both!

    I've been lucky enough to enjoy both of my RCI cruise directors: James Andrews on the Navigator in March 05, and Allan Brooks on the Explorer just a week ago. James has an amazing accent & quirkiness. Allan is always enthusiastic & does a Conan O'Brien-type kick at the end of each show. Both were entertaining, enthusiastic and easy on the eyes! I also liked my Activities Directoron the Explorer, Dave, aka Bingo Boy. His jokes were so corny, but he was very enthusiastic. All three were very attractive, fun men!

    One thing I noticed in browsing the posts is that both CD's are doing the Top 10 Craziest Questions Asked, or however they word it. I wonder who started this trend?!

    do you seriously think that these things are not scripted from HQ (at least partially)... RCCL is very unlikely to leave things to chance plus they are going to want consistant experiences across the line; what you see from one ship to another may be more or less energy, better ad-libs, better crowds sometimes, but they're going to be very consistant with the same programs. What they would like us to think is that whatever CD we had was the best! Notice they always have CD's in training on each cruise as well. I don't want to be cynical, but it is just another cog in the machinery.

Hard to believe but we have occasionaly traded emails for the past two years. I want to keep track of which ship he is on in case we are unsure of which to cruise on. We would love sailing with him again.

    We sailed on the Explorer in March 2004 and we had James!! What a great guy, very funny, and always accessible. He was definitely the best CD I've ever seen.
