Surprise for my wife!

On days I travel home my flights are booked late in the day just incase there are any delays with the ship getting into port or at immigration. My flight for today was booked to leave Miami at 4:00 pm, a 50-minute layover in New York, then arriving in Toronto at 9:49pm. The crew who […]

Crazy People in Nassau Bahamas

When the ship docks, a lot of staff like to go where the Wifi is free. In Nassau Bahamas that is in the Dunk’in Donuts. Today however I was surrounded by crazy people. On my right was a guy who was talking to himself quite loudly (I checked, he didn’t have a cell phone). On […]

Half Moon Cay… My favorite beach!

As you can see by the pictures Half Moon Cay Bahamas is beautiful. Every time I have been on a cruise that com es here I alway take the tender (it is that small boat that is temporarily attached to the ship) ashore and have a swim. I walk along the back of the beach […]

Heckler at a PG show…

Today is a sea day so my day consists of writing, working out and a nap. It is also the first night of comedy shows on the Destiny and I am performing on 3 out of the 5 shows. The 7:30pm show is the family friendly set and was a lot of fun… even with […]

Travel day to Miami

Travel days suck! What more can I say about them: early morning cab ride to the airport, customs, security, airport food and then the plane ride to the final destination. Today I am happy as I have a direct flight as opposed to having to make a connection. AND I am leaving -27 degree temperatures […]

At home…

It is always nice to come home. This time I was actually needed. My lovely wife injured her achilles tendon while dancing and I got to do sometime for the woman I married that I thought wouldn’t happen for another 20+ years… I bought her a cane. With one purchase I have given her the […]

A night off while on the ship?

It doesn’t happen often when working on the ship that you have a night off. After 7 days of watching what I eat and hitting the gym I decided I deserved a cold beer, just one. The problem is, where to enjoy it? There are many fantastic options on board: Crew bar, sports bar, lobby […]

Has it been that long?

Today I am sitting in Three Amigos in Cozumel Mexico. The Wifi is FREE, the drinks are cold, the food is “authentic” Mexican cuisine and the service is good. This is my view from my table: (The pictures won’t load… trust me, they are nice) Right now I am relaxing, enjoying the warm ocean breeze […]

Football fans like to vacation on Cruise Ships

It is Sunday in January which means that NFL playoff football is what dominates the huge 22’ by 40’ outdoor Jumbotron (very large television screen) on the Lido deck. As you see from the pictures (LEFT is the screen, and RIGHT is take directly under the screen), there is nothing better for true fans than […]
