Does anyone know if there is a way to find out who the cruise director or musicians are prior to booking? There used to be a "musicians now playing" link via the Carnival entertainment website that gave information about the musicians but it isn't there anymore.

I don't know how to do it in general. But Wee Jimmy is CD on the Glory, John Held on the Freedom and Todd Wittmer on the Liberty. At least for now

I have been with John Heald and Wee Jimmy. Wee Jimmy was good but John Heald is a LEGEND as a cruise director. He is just great!

Jerry Richardson is the band leader on the Glory right now. If you like good bass guitar...he's is the best I've seen!

The Carnival Entertainment page was never updated anyway...so it was outdated almost as soon as it was created....as far as who was where.

Perhaps if you give us the name of the ship you are interested in, we can do a better job of finding the info for you.

I keep up with a few musicians.

I know that:
Pat Moore (Promenade soloist) - Holiday
Duane (piano bar) - Pride
Mikael Smith (piano bar) - Fantasy
Michael Smith (piano bar) - Destiny

Fantasy -
CD Big Tex
Asst CD Noonan
Karaoke Host Peter
Lounge band - Dakota until May 27th

Nice blog by John. I like how he contacted the whining passenger about the satellite tv and his British accent. No doubt the complainer never figured John would respond to the complaints. I'll bet that was an embarrassing moment!

Steve Cassel is quite a talented fiddler and juggler!

Thanks to each of you for your responses. I haven't decided which ship yet but it will more than likely be a 3 day from Miami or Pt. Canaveral (to be taken within the next couple of months). That will narrow my choice down to the Sensation, Fascination and I believe the Imagination. I had the pleasure of cruising with John Heald and Wee Jimmy on the Triumph and Wee Jimmy again on the Glory ( I thoroughly enjoyed them both). I'm planning a 7 day later this year so maybe I'll get to see John or Wee Jimmy again.

Thanks again for your replies.

why is Noonan Asst CD on the Fantasy? When I was on the pride a year ago or so he was the CD. Is that some sort of demotion?
