She said YES

March 16, 2007 -

The good news is she said yes. The proposal was very romantic and live on the show she said yes as a very nervous young man called Rick proposed to his Latin beauty Isabella. She was truly amazed as his face appeared as large as life on the Seaside Theatre LED Screen and asked her to marry him. There was a slight pause but then she shouted yes and they were reunited in the studio and embraced. We will give them a free copy of the DVD of the proposal and if she changes her mind he can play it backwards and it will have a happy ending. She showed me the ring which was beautiful and had a wonderful engraving on it with the initials T.I.N. 🙂

Seriously, I wish them many years of happiness together.

I treated them both to dinner at the Supper Club Restaurant called The Sun King (named after King Louis of France).

If you have never eaten in our Supper Clubs you really have missed one of the best aspects of cruising on our ships. We have these restaurants on all our Spirit and Conquest Class ships, including the Carnival Freedom.

We have come a long way from the early days of Carnival which now offers these truly incomparable dining experiences.

Where in the world can you have this for $30 per person (with a variety of steakhouse specialties from a vast menu).

Crab Cakes
Caesar Salad made freshly at the table
Lobster Bisque
Porterhouse Steak (using the finest USDA approved beef)
Wasabi Mashed Potatoes
A trio of chocolate luxury desserts
Coffee and Petit Fours

This is all accompanied by beautiful live music for dancing, amidst an elegant and sophisticated setting. Please give this a try and see what Today’s Carnival has to offer.

Back in a minute, its time for my dinner. I am often asked if the crew eat the same food as the guests. Yes we do, so please leave more on your plates than you usually do:)

There is always a lot of chatter about formal nights/wear on the various web sites. Should we have them, should we not etc. My opinion (and it is my blog and this maybe not Carnival’s opinion) is that we absolutely should have them. For many people the chance to dress up these days are getting fewer and I love to see everyone looking elegant. I wonder what the readers think about this..let me know.

It is 10:28pm and I am off now to introduce the 10:45pm show but before I go I want to say hello to the following people who left messages.

Kathy and Paul – Don’t worry about jet lag, laughter is a great cure and I will do my best to provide it.
Matt – I will still be onboard on 12/01/2007, so I will see you then.
Alex – The Carnival Triumph will always be one of my favorite ships and I have many happy memories.
Jose – See you in July mate.
Ken – See you and your family next week. Can I have some diet root beer:)
Paul – You will have a great time on the Carnival Glory and your cruise director is Wee Jimmy, a great friend and very funny (for a scot)

A special message to Mrs. Sally Petrowski who wrote to me on the morning show and whose family is reading this web site. I am truly sorry for your loss and I know this cruise must be so difficult without your loving husband Bill. You have my deepest sympathies and I as we spoke about today, he would have wanted you to come on the cruise and see the places you had planned to see together. I look forward to our cup of tea together and want your daughters Julia, Sam and Chantelle to know that your Mum is doing well and myself and the crew are looking after her. Dad would have been proud!

We will be in Rhodes, Greece tomorrow…..wish you were here.

Life is short, love and laugh while you can.

Showtime……see you tomorrow

Hi, I’m John, and this is my blog. So please don’t mistake my opinions — or those of my dear friends, fans or commenters — for those of Carnival Cruise Line or Carnival Corporation. My apologies in advance for anything I may say that upsets you, but this disclaimer covers Carnival and puts the blame directly on me………….. bugger.
