Well I guess it’s over John selected the western cruise with that stop in OCHO RIOS. I tried hard to get the cruise on 1/26/2008 eastern cruise but no luck. I was even the first to suggest the JOHN HEALD BLOGGERS CRUISE in my open letter (below) to Bob Dickinson, President and CEO of CARNIVAL, and in John’s “thingy” when John told me in his Q & A that he wouldn’t be on the CARNIVAL FREEDOM then. Thank you to all others that showed interest for this cruise date in John’s “thingy”.

Mr. Dickinson, I have just been told by John Heald, CARNIVAL’s best Cruise Director, that he will not be on the FREEDOM for my cruise starting January 26, 2008. I’m sure you have read his blog at, http://johnheald.wordpress.com/, 88,000 people can’t be wrong and most of them are counting down days till their cruise with him, I’m at 296 days. I would hate to have one of your GREAT Personal Vacation Planners, Laurie Pandzik at 1-800-8193902 ext.85877 or LPandzik@carnivalpvp.com , to change my cruise to the ship John will be on at that time. I have the perfect solution. Make the January 26, 2008 FREEDOM cruise the “JOHN HEALD BLOGGERS CRUISE”. I’m sure you the CEO of the greatest cruise line, CARNIVAL, will see the value of this idea.
