Default don't slam me for asking this

But I have a question I'm not sure I can even ask here. I LOVE This board - but I want to find other opinions on excursions and thought if I looked on other cruise sites, I might find them. Any other cruise board site that anyone would recommend?

"Edited for content" Do a google search for cruise forums, I bet you get a few hits on it.

I tried the CC one, because a friend on this one invited me to, but they were rather unfriendly so I quit going to it.

YEs, thats what I heard. Just wanted to see if others go to different sites to get some feedback on some excursions I have in mind.

variety is the spice of life..probably more then would admit do..there is nothing wrong with going to other sites

of course Kuki and Paul have installed a monitoring device on our computers when we enrolled for CM, so they know exactly who and how often we go to other sites

I used to go to another cruise board, but it is not moderated. Mostly dueling travel agents trying to drum up business. Some very nice people....they are everywhere......but not a lot of useful info.
THANK YOU, CM MODERATORS!

Comparably speaking this is a very friendly site. There may not be a lot of us exchanging information, but those of us who do seem to be genuinely helpful. One isn't likely to be flamed here. :evil:

From what I have seen, I totally agree with you. I have yet to see another site as helpful and friendly as this one here. This is the best cruise site ever. There is nothing in comparison to it at all.

Ok I think I have done enough brown-nosing...Do I get a free cruise?

There are many other sites. I frequent this one most and like it the best but like to read reviews and find excursion info on others.

Mehawk, I agree with you. I use to like CC too but found them to be rather rude at times. They seem to try and out do one another on that board. Mary49

okay, there seems to be the assumption that you cannot get good, or timely information here on excursions and reviews.
Why then do "we" continue to have so many post about trivial things and not support each other with useful inforamtion?
The answer may not be going to other sites, but actually responding to the posted questions of each other.

Just a thought.

The larger site has much more useful info as far as hotels, transportation, private excursions, etc. You don't need to post there but can still use all the valuable info posted.

I remember when I joined this site when we first started cruising and I asked a simple question about taking my 85 yr old mom on a Celebrity cruise as far as dining options if she didn't want to go formal. I got some helpful info but also some rather rude comments. It does happen, no matter which board you're on.

So, I say just get as much info as you can from wherever you can to make your cruise the best it can be.

CC is another good board, mainly because both boards are never on top of each other for news.

I've seen news stuff posted there that's not on here for at least a few days or until they are informed of the news.

I think people jump on both. I ignore the idiots, whiners, the OMG's my life is destroyed because my cruise wasn't perfect....you get the idea. They run rampant.

And its always fun to watch when someone well-known on the boards gets banned by a cruise line.....
