Trace Adkins performing on the Jacksonville-based Carnival Fascination!

June 27, 2014

Ok. Here we go.

Who likes Trace Adkins?


I actually met him on the Blake Shelton Cruise back in 2012, but that’s another story

(You can see the Q and A with him here:

Get this.

We leave on our own Jacksonville based Carnival Fascination on Saturday, Oct 11th.

Sunday is a day at sea and on Monday Oct 13 we dock in Nassau.

You have the whole day to explore the Atlantis Resort or just walk around Nassau.

Later that night, Trace Adkins will be on the Carnival Fascination performing in the main show lounge!

How cool is that. If you email me at before Monday and book with me, for the first 2 people only, you will get VIP seating AND you will be able to meet Trace!

We return back to Jax on Thursday, October 16th.

Who’s in?


Why I love to go on cruises.

June 17, 2014

As you may know, I’m a US Navy veteran.

I served on two Navy ships, the U.S.S. Samuel Eliot Morison (FFG-13)


and the U.S.S. Ticonderoga (CG-47). (This is the USS Vincennes, but close enough)



I also was an instructor with the fast flying hydrofoil squadron in Key West Florida.



Now you know why I love cruising so much.

It’s great to be on a ship with 24/7 food, great entertainment, and great destinations!

I don’t have to be “on watch” at 0200 (that’s 2 a.m.) and my wife gets to sail with me.

Do I miss the Navy? Not really.

Do I love being out on the ocean, visiting great ports of call and meeting great people?




I love going on cruises!
