Default Gatorclaw's Long Awaited LIBERTY video!

Finally... Islands of Liberty is here. It's a chronicle of our experience on the Liberty Castaways April 1st cruise of the Eastern Caribbean.

If you haven't seen my other videos, this is the story of our cruise told in photos and video, and too much effort went into it just to share it with my friends and family- so I hope you enjoy it too. And if you're a cruise fanatic- I'm sure you will.

Back again is my girlfriend, Pepper. But to spice things up, along for the ride, are my parents, Ike and Sue. Also joining the cast are several Cruise Critic Castaways, including the infamous Host Randy who just might get a best supporting actor nomination for his great performances!

Special thanks to all the Castaways who helped in one way or another including Randy, Zydeco Cruiser, Rypero, and Emerald777.

So sit back and get lost in the action, humor and romance of 8 days on the Eastern Caribbean! www.gatorclaw.com/liberty

You are obviously VERY talented, and your family is soooooo lucky to have such an awesome keepsake!
I love to make videos myself, but now I am embarassed at my work thus far!!

Are you in this field, or is this a hobby? I would think that you obviously have been trained extensively in this !!

I am amazed.......

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful trip, I felt like I went too!

I've watched all your videos and they are FANTASTIC. This one is especially interesting to me since we will be going on the Liberty 3/07. I have your page saved in my favorites so I can be on the ship whenever I want from now till then. Someone else mentioned it and I agree....you should be doing the advertising for Carnival.
