Mason's On The Love Boat Again
Eureka native son, Mason Matteoli, left yesterday morning for Florida. He'll be taking another 3 month tour with Carnival Cruise Lines as a show musician- a pianist to be more exact. Last time he was on the Carnival Valor. This time he'll be on the Carnival Dream.
Don't know if he'll update his blog any more than he did last time. He had problems with it because the shipboard internet was so slow. I suggested that this tour he write up some posts offline and then go online and send them to me. I could then take the time to post them for him. We'll see if he gives that a try.
Oh, and the ship has a different itinerary than last one. Down through the Caribbean and the Mexican Coast a bit more southward this time, if memory serves me. Should be a fun adventure.
I imagine he's probably aboard ship getting settled in to his quarters as I write this.
Addendum: I guess I was wrong. Only a few stops in the Caribbean with this ship and the ship departs from Orlando, Florida on Saturdays, unlike the Valor that departed on Sundays. I've posted the ship's itinerary on Mason's blog.
