Day 10 of Cruise on Carnival Triumph - Michael Crayton, Balloon Artist

Aloha Everyone,

Michael Crayton is a balloon artist. He retired from U.S. Post Office after working in the marketing department for 27 years. Encouraged by his wife Benda, he attended the balloon convention in Austin Texas in 2003. "That experience changed my life," according to Michael. He always played with balloons but his creations were limited to simple dogs.  He began working for Pediatric Dentists to do balloons. He also does birthdays and special events. This is his 25th cruise and on each cruise, he meets staffs and guest who have "captivating stories" to share. Michael enjoys sharing the joy of giving his balloon creations and declines to "sell" his art works to cruising passengers.

Here are some of Michael's fantastic creations.
