A quick scan of the today’s headlines is enough to make even the most happy-go-lucky person reach for a stiff drink.  At the turn of the century, an “ocean voyage” was prescribed for everything from stress to the common cold – the thinking was that the stiff ocean breeze and soft rolling of the ship were the perfect antidote to the problems of the time.

While your doctor probably won’t be prescribing a long cruise for you anytime soon, Carnival may have just the antidote: the fourth annual Blogger’s Cruise with Senior Cruise Director John Heald.

Already one of the line’s most respected cruise directors, John Heald reached international fame with the debut of his “Blog Thingy in 2007, often detailing with startling wit and remarkable honesty the ups and downs of working behind the scenes on some of Carnival’s best ships.  Since its inception, over 6.3 million visitors have read the thoughts, jokes, and ramblings of this talented man.

Well written and outrageously entertaining (it’s hard not to sit and read the thing for hours), the blog is also noted for the strong connection that has developed among readers and their writer – so much so, that avid readers were invited to sign up for a special Blogger’s Cruise, hosted by John.  The event was such a success that it’s now an annual occurrence.

Departing February 27, 2011 onboard the Carnival Glory, this seven-day Eastern Caribbean voyage offers the chance to not only visit a number of spectacular Caribbean ports, but also the opportunity to interact with him and participate in a host of exclusive events and activities throughout the week.

Topping it off is the Carnival Glory, an amazing ship boasting 22 bars and lounges, a 14,500 sq. foot spa, and a 270-foot LED screen displaying movies and other programming high up on the ships Lido Deck.  
Now that sounds like an escape!

And of course, if you’ve never heard of John Heald or his “Blog Thingy”, be sure to make your way over to his blog – and be prepared to laugh, learn, and appreciate the time it must take out of his schedule to write this for the enjoyment of so many people.
