John Heald Almost  Got Fired

If you watched our interview with John Heald you might remember that when he was talking about how he got started with Carnival he made this comment: “… and then there was an incident involving me and the bar manager.”

Meet the Cruise Mom

Maribeth Kring is a well-known and very popular travel agent who specializes in booking cruises. We were thrilled when she agreed to an interview during our February 2014 cruise on the Carnival Sunshine.

We originally planned to do a video interview during the cruise, but the timing just never worked out. So instead I talked to her over the telephone a few weeks later.

At the time of the interview (March 4, 2014) she was living in Texas. She …
