Next week I will be hosting a meeting with the beards in Miami as we organize all the fun, shows and events for our 5th annual Bloggers Cruise.

In order for me to decide what we do and when, I need you all to let me know who will be joining Heidi, Kye, selected beards, Stephanies, special guests and me. I also have to order the gifts we will send you.

I aim to make BC5 the best yet and look forward to seeing you on the brilliant Carnival Magic on March 4th.

Here is Eric the Beard to explain what you have to do:

Hey Bloggy People!

Us beards have created a very short and simple form for you to fill out that will give us all of the necessary information we need to ensure that 1) you are properly added to the guest list for all BC5 events/activities and 2) that you receive all of the fun gifts we will be giving out this year.

Before you fill out the form though, here are a few important things to remember.

  • Read each field VERY carefully. Filling the form out wrong could result in you not being added to the attendee list and/or receiving your gifts.
  • In the “Additional Guests” field, only include the names of guests who are staying in YOUR cabin.
  • Once you submit the form you will receive a Thank You message. This means your submission is complete and has been received by the beards.
  • If any of your information changes (i.e stateroom #) or you have questions regarding BC5, please DO NOT re-submit a new form. Email them to:, along with the subject line: Bloggers Cruise 5. This will ensure you receive a response in a timely manner.

Now that we got that fun stuff out of the way, here is the link to the form: Bloggers Cruise 5 form.

Look forward to seeing you all there!

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.
