For Stephanie

As you know Stephanie dedicates each and every day to the blog. She makes sure its posted as well as keeping up with the comments etc. She has done this regardless of her own personal circumstances and that includes recently discovering her Mum has Parkinson’s. This is of course something that I asked her permission to share with you all and once I received it I assured her that everyone would send their support, especially those bloggers who may have had experience with this terrible affliction.

So, please send your best to her Mum and I can assure that even though Stephanie looks after her morning, noon and night her dedication to the blog will be resolute.


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.
