To A: Why party with people from the Yahoo Groups Board? Because as soon as I registered and began posting about my Insignia Venice-Athens cruise on Aug. 31, I received several e-mails from fellow cruisers, introducing themselves and sharing their excitement about our upcoming trip.
For the last 3 years I have "met" people through this and other cruise forums, whether in cyberspace or in person and have never been disappointed. We have made great friends and good travelling companions this way and we have all shared our cruise experiences with each other re: port excursions, shipboard life, etc. We've had welcome notes left in our cabin on arrival, and people to share a meal or taxi ride with from the very first day. It's just nice to know you "know" someone on board as soon as you arrive. Marsha
