Had Dennis a few times on the Anthem. He does a great job. He has a very good voice, even singing at the past guest parties.

We enjoyed Dennis also as a CD.  As enjoyable as he can be as a host and from our experiences with him, he is very visible around the ship.  He can also be a little verbally combative/hardline with a cruiser -- we have seen that side of him.....to him it is not ' the customer is always right'.....and personally that is fine and as it should be (JMO).

How did others find Jewel and the entertainment staff? Is it similar to Serenade?

I had forgotten that side of him entitled cruisers can feel his wrath  and yes Dennis is a little old school but always seemed very active and enjoyed his performances too

I will agree Dennis is very active onboard and enjoyed him performing as well.  When we had him on Jewel, he participated in the cruiser/staff water volleyball game...and he was hysterical.

OH NO!  I was so hoping he would be on my May 5 Hawaii to Vancouver sailing.  I am so sorry to miss him. I am not familiar with Susan Adams, any thoughts?

What did you think?  We just got back from Alaska with her.  25 cruises and worst CD.

That was the consensus among my friends.  I’m not sure she is in the right position.

Susan Adams was CD on a cruise we we on Greek Islands on Jewel a few years ago. From what I remember there were some issues, but we were there to enjoy the iten of ports.

Agreed.  The CD does not make or break my cruise.  I do enjoy some more than others.
