Default can you mention travel agencies on Cruisemates?

Don't want to violate any rules before posting a question so just making sure.

I asked on the ask CM threads and was told it depends on the context. You can't promote your TA, but you can mention one to illustrate a point.

I can't say my TA gives deep discounts on group cruises, but I can say so and so TA has military rates if the question is asked.

At least that was the answer I was given. There are several TAs who post and at least one of the Hosts on CM is a TA, so they would not want someone promoting a specific TA.

I can see both sides of this. I had some talks on Triumph last week with friends who use a certain TA for the dark side group cruises who has been having trouble getting the TA to do the price drops on ES... I think it would be good if people could post stuff like this, with a specific TA name.

If you have a question about a specific travel agency you certainly can post it.

And responses should be specific to that question, not recommending other travel agencies... and certainly no email or phone numbers for contact information.

The reasoning is quite simple. CruiseMates is financially supported by advertising. Our advertisers wouldn't be very supportive if people could just post advertising freely one the message boards.

OK ty Kuki and Flowers.

I just wanted to know if anybody ever had trouble booking with Cruises N More.

I filled out all the info including my credit card info and passport numbers and hit book now and never got a confirmation, no charges on my credit card and no emails from them either.

I went through that competing place and the email listed for Cruises N More listed on my quote was undeliverable.

Just wondering if was an isolated incident.

Curious you get no response. They seem to have a decent rep.
Here are a few places to look for details.
Maybe use the "email this company" via the link on the BBB report to get them to respond.
