Folks, we have a new message board under the Practical Advice area entitled "Cruiseline Suggestions" What it is is a great way to let the cruiselines or even individual ships know what you would like to see changed, started, stopped, etc. Not looking for mindless complaints but real honest suggestions that help to improve the cruise experiance for not only you, but your fellow passengers. Sort of like an Internet Comment Card for the cruiselines. <G> Visit and let them know and give your suggestions.
Yes, according to Jim, who's never lied to me before ,people from the cruise lines DO read our posts! I know of two people who post on this site that are cruise line employees (and there may be more). I don't know if they can "make changes", but I'm sure they can forward interesting posts to the people who can.
Like Jocko, I think the cruise lines do pay attention to what we say.
"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour."

All I can say is that a President of one of the major cruiselines repeated almost word for word something that was posted here once to us. No way was is pure coincidence. I also know of some people who are employees of lines and some are pretty high up that read the boards, and no I will not name names. <G>
