Blogger's Cruise Update

October 4, 2008 -

News From Steph

Hi Everyone,

Here is some exciting information that I know you’ve been waiting for about the blogger’s cruise. First let me explain that because this is a special hotel package that includes transfers we have a special booking process. Please do not call the hotel or Carnival directly to make reservations. To make reservations please email me at with the following information:

1. Number of nights staying at hotel
2. Occupancy (single, double, triple or quad)
3. Guests names (all guest names which desire the hotel package, may not be the total number of guests in the booking)
4. Flight arrival information
5. CCL booking number

We will process requests on a first come first serve basis and we do have a limited amount of rooms. I will email you to confirm I received your request and provide you with additional details at that time. The hotel information is as follows:

Maison St. Charles Hotel & Suites
1319 St. Charles Ave
New Orleans, LA 70130

Hotel rates are per person and inclusive of transfers, room and tax.

One Night Per Person:

Two Night Per Person:

This is the hotel where John, me and the rest of the Carnival team will be staying.

In a few days we will have a sign up form for the volunteer work with Beacon of Hope Resource Center on Feb. 6, 2009. Once we have a better estimate of participants we can provide detailed information. But as of now it looks like we’ll be meeting in the hotel lobby around 7:30 am with the volunteer project ending before 3 pm.

More details about the blogger’s cruise are on the way and we hope to see you in Feb.!

Check back in a few hours for John’s post.

Have a happy Saturday!

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.
