Default Status of CruiseMates


I just signed up here today because I was interested in finding a cruise companion for a future tirp...but it appears that this site may no longer be in service in the near future? Is that right?

It seemed to suggest that Fodor would be talking this site over. Does this mean that the content and abilities of this site will remain intact, or what?

Anyways, I am just trying to figure out the best course of action from here.

Thank you!!

You are correct this site is closed to newmembers and those who are already members have been re-directed to Fodors or some other cruise site.

As I and Kuki said: "IB will probably forget about us like they have for the last five years."

When they do redirect to Fodor's it will probably be over a weekend when they do system maintenance. Or it could be whenever the server is rebooted.

Take care,

Wonder who is getting the income from the banner ads. I suppose the hosting providers.
