Any idea when Sinan is coming back? He hasn't been posted on his FB page since Jan 19 (I know it's only a week).
I just heard from Sinan this morning. He does not know when he is coming back.

I was on the Gem the first week of the year.

Captain: Roger Gustavsen
Hotel Director: Stephen Knott
Assistant Hotel Director: Jenny Lim
Cruise Director: Sinan Ulucay! However he went home right after that cruise for a couple of weeks due to a knee injury. Check his facebook page to see when he's back.
Cruise Consultant: Sherry ? (I forgot her last name and I don't have it on the sheet here, but she's a doll!)
Guest Services Manager: Nomita Rambhunjan
Food and Beverage Director: Mohammed Hasan
Executive Chef: Ricardo Pinheiro
Restaurant Manager: Serhat Kati
Bar Manager: Norman Anderson
Executive Housekeeper: Edgar Horlador
Only a couple of wks later on Gem and there are some updates:

Asst. HD Jenny Lim and F & B Dir. Mohammend Hasan are on vacation and will return late March. There isn't an AHD currently onboard.

Joseph Schuster is F & B Dir. When Steve Knott goes on vacation in several wks, Joseph will step up to HD. He has been HD on Gem before and was an HD for Royal prior to joining NCL.

Restaurant Mgr. is currently Marek from Czech Republic.

Bar Mgr. is Luis (sorry don't have full names) and Exec. Housekeeper is Tess, both from Phillipines.

"Big Ken" Mills came on recently as CD when Sinan went home for surgery. Ken and his team ACD Joel, cruise hosts Shirley, Ruby and Fish did a great job!

Tks. I had a feeling I had forgotten someone. Eddie did a great job and has a nice voice, too (sang in the crew show).

I was going to add her, but I didn't have her last name's spelling.

Agree, she is super...she's an old friend from prior cruises when she was on the Entertainment staff.

She is leaving the Gem in a few months and moving to the Jade in Europe
