The blog of Carnival’s Senior Cruise Director John Heald – which has garnered 2.2 million hits since being launched in March 2007 – continues to make headlines, most recently part of a two-page feature story in Monday’s Miami Herald

Even after 15 months of blogging, Heald continues to contribute posts on a near-daily basis and will be blogging during start-up activities for the new 113,300-ton Carnival Splendor, which is slated to debut in Genoa July 2 before launching 12-day Northern Europe cruises from London (Dover) July 13, 2008.
