Dear Minnie,

Well it's almost a year since you conceived, directed and choreographed Vrooom and Livin' in America for us on the Carnival Victory. These shows opened to fantastic reviews, but I thought you'd want to know that the rave reviews are still coming in. Both of these shows are now regarded as two of the best shows ever put on at sea.

Most people don't realize how big shows on ships have become. I know you were impressed to find such a large stage with the most modern technical facilities available. I know that you were also impressed to be working with such a talented cast of 18 performers and a live 10 piece orchestra, but all of this wouldn't have meant anything without your hard work and talent.

All of us at Carnival Cruise Lines are looking forward to working with you on more shows for our ever expanding fleet. The shows are great, and we love the energy and fun you put into it.

Thanks again and congratulations on the great shows on the Carnival Victory.

Sincerely,

Roger Blum
