I think that there has been a noticeable decline in the postings on this board. Maybe the fact that I noticed it immediately after the board changed format is merely a coincidence but I don't think so. Perhaps the casual contributer doesn't read the board anymore. I see the same folks again and again. These folks have a vast knowledge of cruising in general and Carnival in particular and their input is very educational. But I do miss the 1st time cruisers. Thay had great questions that made me reconsider some aspects of cruising. Anyway in answer to the original question yes I do think participation has declined.
I also feel the boards have seen less traffic lately. My family and I are new to crusing (just took our first cruise 2 months ago) and we got a lot of good advice and had several questions answered on these boards. I hope it picks back up soon. We enjoy reading about others experiences, it helped us plan our trip and avoid a few unpleasant situations.
Something weird has been going on with my login.
This is the first time I have been able to post in several days.
It kept just booting me back out. Deleted cookies more than once
but this is the first time it would let me post.
Not a big fan of the new format.
