Good morning all
Before I commit to this forum I was just wondering if this forum is part of the the cruise.co forum. This forum is populated by very snobbish self opinionated clowns. These ridicule all others and do not allow opinions expressed by others. I hope this is a true cruising forum.

THis happens to be the most friendly and yet informative cruise boards you will find. We do have some guidelines/rules, but they are pretty easy to follow.

Welcome to Cruisemates.

I think you'll find CruiseMates as UNsnobby as you can get! Feel free to join in and ask anything about cruising no matter how inane it might be. And if you post in Chit Chat, you can pretty well discuss anything at all! Welcome.

I don't know the forum of which you speak. I came here after getting VERY frustrated with the login practices of another site. I tried to change my password or screen name, and NEVER received the confirmation email. I was officially locked out and coudln't get back in again.

You'll find this to be a VERY friendly forum. DIfferences of opinion are always accepted .... unless of course its on the dreaded smoking or dress code topics (just kidding!). Those threads always seem to get heated, but this forum always remains respectful.

Welcome to Cruise Mates!

Maybe I need another coffee.


Q of O-You're not seeing things! There seems to be 2 separate posts- cruise.com victim AND cruisedot forum.victim. I'm sure they'll get merged by someone in the know!

Hello ...

I am hoping you will choose to change that screen name as you become more accustomed to CruiseMates. Anytime you want to change it just let me know and I can do it for you.

I am sorry for the apparent problems you had at another forum, but we try very very hard to avoid those kinds of conflicts here, (including bringing conflicts from other boards into our forums) so I have high hopes that you will soon feel the spirit of our comradery and join us in useful and fun discussions about cruising - and eschew any possible personality conflicts even if you do see some people from the other board posting here.
