Cruise director’s movie star past comes back to haunt him

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On January - 29 - 2010

I bet you didn’t know Carnival’s senior cruise director John Heald is a movie star (sort of). In 1985, John fittingly starred as the cruise director in a movie with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen dubbed “The Case Of The Mystery Cruise”. Check out this movie clip on YouTube where a dark haired and svelte John introduces the Olsen twins to an on deck crowd for a talent show.

After this movie it was all smooth sailing for the Olsen twins as they became billionaires like Micky Arison. For John, sadly, the seas to riches and Aston Martins were not so smooth. Alas, twenty five years later he’s still plying the waters of the world on the “Fun Ships” with the likes of Wally and Anita Banger, Lewis Nixon, and Big Al Ernst. All teasing aside, Happy Birthday John!! This blog’s for you!

  1. Way to go John. I’m sure those weren’t his only 15 minutes of fame with the position he holds. Just wait till Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers board the ship; he’ll be back on the big screen!

  2. Those kids were just too cute when they were little. And the surprising thing is they’re even cuter now as adults. Oh, by the way, John is not so bad either!
