Talking Carnival Freedom, John Heald & YOU! - Bloggers Cruise with John Heald 1/19/08

Cruise Critic was quick enough to nab some coveted "group space" on board John Heald's upcoming "Blogger's Cruise" on Carnival Freedom sailing from Miami on January 19, 2008.

John Heald's Blogger's Cruise Info - Member Cruise Info

We've obtained great rates on this sailing just to ensure a fantastic showing on board from Cruise Critic. After all, *you are* the voice of cruising on the Internet, aren't you??

So, will you be there??

Laura

That would be a riot, or should I say MUTINY.

Thank you for the invitation, coming from the head honcho, I might just take CC up on that one, we'll see.

Ok Randy, how about a bidding war between you and Laura?
Who'll offer the Captain & the Mrs the cheapest price?
Only this is a bidding where you are bidding the price down, not up!

Funny you should mention that......why I have the same deal two weeks before!

Actually, if I went on both and then I have another group in march on Freedom....I should just hire on as John's assistant and stay aboard!

Randy,

I'll sign on as a blogging RN for January through March in case any of the various bloggers need medical assistance. You can assist John and I'll assist those who fall ill trying to keep up!

Angry Carnival Freedom '08

Ok now I am MAD...I booked 8 of us with a Military discount for 1/12/08 Eastern Caribbean Cruise on the Freedom. Now I see there is one for the group the week before AND the week after...no I can't sail BOTH or all 3...lol. Someone needs to make a group cruise for THESE dates. What is the rate for your dates? I got 3 adjoining balconies with the military discount and 8 of us for $700pp. I am sooooo excited.
Can anyone offer ideas for excursions off Carnival or on for St Maarten or St Thomas?

Default Ron Pass

Is Ron Pass still going to be on the Freedom for this cruise? If not, does anyone know where he'll be after the trans-Atlantic in November? Thinking seriously of jumping on this one and Ron Pass in the piano bar would make it just that much sweeter.
