About Us

My wife and I are avid CARNIVAL cruiser but since we don’t fly all our cruises are from stateside. So we both enjoy John Heald’s blog.  Most of  our cruise have been at the end of January so the we are on-board for our anniversary on the 29th. This also gets us away from the snow and cold of Michigan winters. From reading John’s blog “thingy”, as he calls it, and it’s many comments I see there are others following the ship and counting down days till their cruise.

    Big Ed, this is from one of the travel writers (the bearded one) who was on the Freedom with John, Heidi, you and the several thousand — or so it seemed — devotees of his thingy.
    Ed, I am mentioning you in my story this coming Sunday in the St. Petersburg Times, but I need to add where you live. Also, if you could tell me how many folks took part in the surprise birthday party …

    Hi Ed,

    I am one of John’s Bloggers. I cruised with him last May, when we took the Mediterranean Cruise with him. How do I submit a picture for your bloggers book?

  9. John's sister

    Hey Ed – I promise I will get in touch real soon – I am just in Disney for the weekend for my sons birthday.

    Hong kong Disney is about the size of a postage stamp compared to the US and we have the joys of the buffet breakfasts of donuts marshmellows and m&m’s which set the kids up for an eventful first ride on Space Mountain !!! So, will write properly soon. Xxx


    Suzanne, I’m so glad you posted a comment. Now we will get your unedited replies to John’s stories. Tell Luke Happy Birthday from My Crew. Hope you enjoy Disney.

    Good Morning Ed & Pat,
    Glad to see John’s sister is joining our evil krewe. I think she may enjoy this!

    Maybe she can join our “Royal Court” ? What do you say princess’? She deserves a title after putting up with John… ;-))

    Big Ed:

    I will be on the Splendor for the B2B South America so I will miss this bloggers cruise too. Can you add me to your Crew anyway and keep me up on what’s happening? I have read all your postings this last year and know that you and your crew are as avid fans of John and Heidi as I am.

    Hi Ed,
    Have been reading your blog almost as long as we have been reading John’s.
    We have never made a bloggers cruise but are on the Dreams inaugrual in September so we may have something similar.
    Saw all your photos and others from the Nolo trip including the bed spread, you guys looked as though you had a great time.
    We hope Carnival are going to keep some kind of link into europe in 2010 and 11 when Magic is due to come online.
    Bets wishes

    Hi Ed,

    I’ve just come across your blog and I thought it was a really good read.
    We’ve created a travel-related item that I feel someone like you might be quite interested in. Essentially, it’s a quiz that’s been made just for a bit of fun, and it’s about adventurers and is generally just a fun thing to go with all things travel. I’d be really grateful if you could take a look at it and maybe put it up on your blog if you enjoy it, and I think it would even add some more value to your blog as a whole. It would be really helping me out if you could do this for me. You can find the quiz at http://www.tripbase.com/quiz/whichadventurer/, thanks!

    Thank you so much,

    i just found your web page and see you are from my home state of Michigan. I would like to communicate with you abour the bloggers cruise. We also have been on Carnival, 5 time, also in Januarys. We might be neighbors and dont even know it. I am always running into people from Michigan when we cruise and its always cool talking to someone from home. We are retired and libe in the small village of Pewamo right between St. Johns and Ionia.

  17. Since you are evidently tuned into all things Carnival do you have any information on whether the Dream will be stopping in or boycotting Belize in the next few weeks?

  18. Here is a good place to ask. I know the were chatting about it yesterday so you may find your answer by reading back.

    Hi Ed,
    We will be on BC4 and wonder where to get info on activities? Do You know?
