Twitter user lamp wrote in to our PR contact address to let us know he’s planning on keeping us posted during his first ever Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Freedom out of Miami next month.

Mr. Watson says he sets sail on November 12 but he plans on starting his updates one day earlier, on November 11. He’ll be using PocketTweets with his 16GB iPod touch and the ship-wide Wi-Fi.

“Wherever I happen to be on the boat, whatever I happen to be doing, I’ll send in updates. The itinerary takes me from Miami to Key West to Cozumel, Mexico and back. The Freedom is one of Carnival’s newest and biggest ships. There will be LOTS to Twitter about.”

Mr. Watson contacted us via email adding, “Just thought I’d let you guys know.”

Well, now we know! Bon Voyage, Mr. Watson. We’re looking forward to those updates—be sure to send us a photo wearing your Twitter t-shirt and be careful not to fall overboard (there might be sharks).
