The podcasts I have listened to in the past are always extremely detailed, and just assume they are speaking to fans, which I usually am or want to be. That seems to work in most cases, but I really want to help new cruisers also. For now, I think it will remain a mix, and we will see who listens (and more importantly, who gives me feedback). We should be in iTunes very soon, so keep an eye out for that.
On another subject, I was kind of shocked at how much the cruise community blew up yesterday over the change in the smoking policy on Carnival, Princess and Holland America. I mean, who is really shocked that lines are no longer allowing smoking in rooms after most hotels and restaurants on land have already done this a long time ago. But some of the comments directed to John Heald on facebook were outrageous. I saw people demanding refunds, claiming that they no longer wanted to cruise with Carnival. May I ask...who cruises soley to smoke?
