Shoot The Cruise Director

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
First of all a big "thank you" to the folks at Carnival for getting our cruise out of New York with Hurricane Sandy hot-on-our-heels. A terrific waitstaff, clean rooms, and adequate food (for the money) were all appreciated, the folks on this cruise worked very hard indeed to make us all as comfortable as possible.

WARNING: If you're looking to kill a week or so on a cruise that is run by a gent named "Cory" (who we never even bumped into on the cruise), and all you want to do is run run into "re-scheduled shows" (some of which were explainable, but none of which, despite the abundance of available on-board talent, the cruise director had any desire to "work around"... think "Carnival", or at least the Carnival Miracle " !

With the exception of the extremely talented show band and the wonderful "Beatles Stage Show" you'll find yourself deluged in a sea of a "pushy" and all too frequent photography staff, two possibly well meaning... but More please put them back "home-on-the-range" "guitarist crooners", one "fun but noisy" unpolished saloon pianist, and tour own personal MIA "Cruise Director"... apparently the kind of guy who possibly "slept his way to the top" and no one ever bothered to wake him... he just didn't exist.

Dead time, Dead time, Dead time. Third rate ?... hmmmm, I don't think so.

While we were at Nassau parked next to the Norwegian "Jewel" ("Dan The Man" is the cruise director), all I wanted to do was jump ships... what a paradox, the best and worst cruise directors sharing the same dock !

Enough said, you get the idea. Less
