We were on the Sensation in May,and Dean Gaines was the comedian and was very funny,we are wanting to book another cruise later in the year,and were wanting to find out if there is a way to find out what his schedule is,we can't seem to find anything on this,and we would like to see him again if he is still working on Carnival ships,thanks

Comedians, like most feature acts, are independent contractors and might be anywhere at any given time. This is something that isn't tracked anywhere I know of. Perhaps Carnival's senior cruise director John Heald might be able to help. Go to John Heald's Blog and you'll be able to ask him.

Reply at the bottom of the post, like Dave said, and if you want a reply you need to state: "John, please reply"

Hi struckrk, Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

I thoroughly understand why you'd want to know his schedule. I saw him on the Celebration "I think", I'd have to pull out my stack of capers to check for sure. Anyway, I 'bout busted a gut laughing during his show.

The best thing would be to ask John if he knows or can find out for you as was suggested. I am not sure they have a set schedule for comedians as to my understanding they are often late type bookings and are not known way ahead in advance.

Go HERE and scroll all the way to the bottom for the reply/comment section. You can also in addition send an email to

I'll send a note as well asking the "lowdown" on the schedules.

Thank you,I appreciate it.

We bought his CD last time we saw him on Carnival... he is very funny, but apparently a very common name as a google search does not return an obvious website for him. I checked his CD but there isn't one listed on that either.

John's blog would be a good place to ask...

I asked John for you and received an answer.

You can read the blog answer here.

Their schedules are for around 3 months out. Brad Tassell is one of the few that posts his schedule on his website
