By clicking this link you will be taken away from RyG's Cruise Guide and to a website called AirTable which is what Carnival uses to manage its cruise director schedule. NOTE: I am not affiliated with Carnival and have no control over the cruise director schedule. I am just sharing how you find out what Carnival's schedule says. This schedule can change at any time!
Does the schedule change?
The schedule can change at any point in time. For this reason, I do not recommend booking a cruise solely to have a certain cruise director because I do not want you to be disappointed if the schedule changes. I do understand that having a well liked cruise director is a great reason to want a certain cruise, but just realize things could change with the schedule.
What if my ship has a TBA cruise director?
This most likely means that Carnival has not finalized who will be on your cruise at a particular date. Generally, the TBAs are filled in advance of a cruise leaving. Even if for some reason your cruise didn't have a true cruise director someone onboard would probably act as the cruise director which would mean no visible impact would be seen by guests.
How far out does the schedule go?
Since Carnival's schedule is updated frequently this could change. Generally for most ships, the planned cruise director up until mid-2020 is available (at the time of writing). This means for several of Carnival's ships you are able to see who the cruise director will be through summer 2020. Some ships have not yet been updated. Just keep checking back is my recommendation!
