To John, and all the posters to this thread sharing the same sentiments,
I can't tell you how happy these types of posts make me!!! This is precisely the reason I said yes, when Anne and Paul who were just putting CruiseMates together, asked me to "work" for them here.
They told me... As the name implies, it all about CRUISEMATES... which means it's all about PEOPLE.
The goal right from the beginning, besides offering the best cruise information on the web, was to establish an "internet neighborhood and community" where PEOPLE were the driving force. And each and every one of you, and anyone else who happens to "move into the neighborhood", are integral parts of the community!!!
