Default Merry! Merry christmas!!!

It is once again Christmas Day, the most joyful time of the year (and I'll quickly add, not for necessarily tangible reasons either).

Yes, it's that wonderful time of year where often is heard not a discouraging word....welllll...... unless you factor in that time honored phrase, "If they're going to die then let them do it...and decrease the surplus population!" Ah yes, that endearing quote from that wonderful and friendly business associate of Jacob Marley. But lest you forget, there was redemption in that case too and it turned out to be for all injvolved, a Merry Christmas indeed.

And of course, "May God Bless us All....EVERYONE!"

May each of you have a Most Blessed Christmas!

Love,
Ebenezer "The Grinch" Todd

Today, we are more than "Cruisemates", we are all brothers and sisters on this great, living planet. So, to those who observe, Merry Christmas and enjoy the celebrations of our families and friends!


Today, I am at work but that is fine, I stand at the ready, ever vigilant to protect our American way of life. I do so proudly and without any reserve. No thanks needed.


33 more days until we are on the Carnival Triumph once again!!!!
