Here John takes you through the great day we had as we welcomed back Carnival Triumph, and saw her off as she prepared for the first leg of her voyage — heading toward Cozumel. Enjoy!

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.
