Hey, everyone! Happy Monday and Memorial Day! To all the service men and women THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You have helped keep this amazing nation safe and my freedom a humbling privilege. Again, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

Okay, so I was initially planning on talking about my cruise on Carnival Glory this week... but I saw the news just like y'all did this morning. Now you may remember just a few short weeks ago, I was on Grandeur of the Seas. I posted pics and videos from my time aboard and had a BLAST! And I was saddened to see that nearly 3.5 weeks later after I disembarked her, she was now sporting a blackened aft and damages. Just in case you haven't heard, at approximately 2:00am on Monday, May 27, 2013, Grandeur of the Seas had a fire occur in the mooring area of the ship. No one was injured. No one died. You know, these incidents are isolated and has anyone else notice that no one has died in any of the cruise ship headlining stories? Seriously, this is amazing and nothing less than a miracle from God! AND they are all getting flown home, a full refund and a free future cruise!

So I want to just say I will be praying for the passengers and crew of Grandeur of the Seas as well as making sure to lift ALL cruise ships in my prayers! Whew! We've been having a pretty interesting 2 years, wouldn't you say? You know 2012 was Titanic's 100th year anniversary... I guess she's coming back for ALL the ships? LOL jk jk I'll be keeping tabs with what's what on this particular story and know y'all will too! Maybe we'll have even more insight as the week progresses? Do y'all think the media will soften the blow on RCI versus the TKO they gave Carnival earlier this year?

Well, in other cruise news, I am on Carnival Glory this week, so be sure to follow along on Twitter for live updates from me. AND I won't be blogging on The Cruisetacular Weekly while sailing, BUT I will blog from The Ocean Escape! So be sure to stay connected with your boy - you know I Iove interacting with y'all! Thanks for always reading along! Until we talk ship again, keep cruising and grooving!

Come sailing with me on Carnival Glory this week, vicariously! I wanna hear from ya! Send me a tweet, I'll reply back... promise! :biggrin:

"Do y'all think the media will soften the blow on RCI versus the TKO they gave Carnival earlier this year?".

I've read three different reports of the fire on the G.O.S. Shon. All from three different reporting agencies. The media continues to kick Carnival when their down by just HAVING to mention the incident on the Carnival Triumph in the reports of the G.O.S. fire !!!

Actually, the Coast Guard contacted the Sensation to ask them to be prepared to assist if an evacuation had become necessary, because they were the closest ship capable of assisting.

Oh hey, John! I did see that too! Excuse my oversight - I stand corrected!

Without question, I would most DEFINITELY cruise Carnival again. Having sailed with Carnival five times, the most recent being on the Dream in 2010, I have had nothing but fond memories of my cruises with them!! As I have mentioned in previous posts, and I'm sure many would agree, you endure the possibility of some type of mishap in your vacation. I have had more concerning incidents happen to me on planes than on cruises. I have had my car break down en-route to my vacation. We even had to wait for a hurricane to pass in Aruba (which by the way is not considered in the hurricane belt). Granted, these passengers on the ships endured the unthinkable, but in most cases were reciprocated for their ordeal. Just my opinion.........

Oh yeah man, I'm always gonna sail Carnival and I'm glad you will too! Plus, why would I trade my Platinum status (working on that Diamond)! I agree, I've cherished some great high seas vacations with Carnival, too - they've got my support for life! Thanks for sharing your insight, man... I LOVE IT! Keep the comments coming!
