Hey, guys!! Mach here...

As this is an online community and so many of us enjoy the musings of John Heald I thought that it would be fun if the folks sailing on the Carnival Fantasy with John for the Blogger's cruise had somewhere to share the fun with y'all.

Many of us are leaving for New Orleans today, tomorrow or Thursday so I figured that now would be an appropriate time to start this blog thingy, as John would call it.

Expect a BUNCH of posts from our Bayou Bloggin' Krewe as we explore the recently refurbished Carnival Fantasy, wander from adventure to adventure, explore Progreso, Cozumel and generally act silly!!!

We've got over 100 Cruise Critic members sailing so you KNOW it's gonna be a party!!!

Bloggers... now it's YOUR turn! This is YOUR blog!!! It's time to let all of our Cruise Critic family know how much fun this amazing event is!!!

Ready... set... GO!!!

:D

And come Saturday morning a great vision in white shall emerge from the mist as she rounds the bend in the river. Finally the "Fantasy" of so many has arrived at the dock. Of course they will have to sober up first as they will have been out all night on Bourbon St.

 

ARE WE THERE YET?

We are looking forward to a great time in New Orleans...from the Family Reunion to the Volunteer work to the cruise.

 

Having just been on the Fantasy...I think those who have not sailed her since the drydock will be pleasantly surprised.

 

Love the new Adult Serenity Area and the new Waterpark. Love the new look of Lido pool area.

 

I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.

Penny & Centava, Mexican Princess de Nueva Orleans, are planning a great trip. Watch out everyone, for all the masked revelers at the Mardi Gras Party. I think this group may set a new standard for Krewes and cruising. Everyone, please join in our fun!!!

 

Adios

This one is five days!!!

:)

If you're interested, John and I are going to put together a cruise... a Cruise Critic group cruise I hope... that will probably be a five day on the Ecstasy.

It won't be a Blogger's Cruise but John will be there for the fun!!!

:D

Well, well . . . I decide to check things out on CruiseCritic regarding my upcoming cruise, and what do I see on the home page? My home city of New Orleans and the Fantasy . . . the ship I'm sailing. Then some kind of masthead about a blogger being on board during my cruise. Hmmmm . . . hope that's a good thing! Staff at attention! Crisper sheets? Superior food? Or just plain old Carnival time wild times. I'm missing the Krewe de Vieux's parade for this, you know. (Native New Orleanians know what I'm talking about.)

 

Will hopefully meet some of you on board, and share in the fun! Best to all!
