Hi, and welcome to the diverse world of Cruising, & Cruisemates. As mentioned, we certainly strive to make the boards an amiable place to be. It's also a place to give an opinion. It may not be my opinion as a moderator, but if it has not crossed the lines of terms of service, it stays.
I hope you will continue to use the boards a a learning tool for your October cruise. Lots of valuable info here, and its given with enthusiasm and appreciation of cruising:)
Trip, with her book & tea!
