Default Re: Re: Cruisemates Staff Paid/Unpaid

"Suffice to say that neither I nor any other member of the Cruisemates staff count on what we receive from Cruisemates to pay our bills each month."

Jim... Well said. :-)

I am one of the principles in CruiseMates, Inc. along with Anne Campbell.

I also wish I could pay our staff to go on cruises and come back and talk about them. I wish I could pay MYSELF to do that, but I don't.

Bicker wrote "I have only found one significant cruise-related message boards web site that isn't tightly aligned, or out-right operated, by a travel agency or some other commercial travel-related enterprise."

And for the record, I disagree with him, but purely on a semantics basis. We are a commercial entity, NOT tightly aligned, or out-right operated, by a travel agency or some other commercial travel-related enterprise."

We are our OWN commercial travel-related entity, we are not run by any OTHER enterprise. We run ourselves and are supported by the advertising we sell.
