It appears my last paragraph is mincing around in cyberspace somewhere, so here it is again as I am sure the ending made no sense. Sorry about that

See you back here later for a full blog

Still, for every complaint there are a hundred comments of praise including one today from a guest whose Stateroom Steward Nina went above and beyond for them. The guest told me that her son had cried all day because the elephant towel animal she had made the night before was just ……………well……………a towel when he woke up. So Nina went to the gift shop and bought him a Towel Animal Elephant and placed it on his bed. The guest told me her sons tears were now smiles………………………..so, Its been a strange day. I had a grumpy git who called me a simpleton because I showed Indiana Jones and not President Obama on the big screen. I met a rude taxi driver who showed that sometimes money is more important than compassion yet by helping the guest I received a huge hug. And then Nina the State Room Steward showed that exceeding expectations can sometimes be a simple thing like buying a kid a toy and in that gesture alone she showed once again why the crew are what makes our ships so brilliant.

Yep, its been quite a day and I haven’t even had time to moan about not being able to find any Hemorrhoid cream today in St.Thomas………………..I will save that for tomorrow.

Goodnight
Your Friends

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.
