'Carnival PARADISE'

'3 & 4-day Santa-Catalina Island + Mexican Baja Cruise'

Cruising from the port of Long-Beach, California, this contract included a series of 3 and 4 day Cruises, which turned out to be the infamous 'Booze-Cruises' I'd heard so much about: YIKES! My first (and last) experience working with CARNIVAL turned out to be a LOOOONG 5 months. I'm grateful for the fine new friends who made it all worth while (plus some sweet sights & decent weather too). We had regular stops on beautiful Santa Catalina Island, USA, and in Ensenada, Mexico.

'SPLENDOUR of the Seas'

I was the first Guitar-Player to perform in 'SPLENDOUR of the Seas' 'Schooner Bar', which has always traditionally been a 'Piano Bar' on ALL Royal Caribbean Cruise-Ships. We cruised a variety of different itineraries from the port of Galveston, Texas (USA) into Cozumel, Costa Maya, Playa del Carmen (Mexico), Belize City (Belize), Montego Bay, Ocho Rios (Jamaica), & George Town (Cayman Islands).

NOTE: 'The SPLENDOUR' has since been sold to a different Cruise Line who has had her refurbished.
