Now, I probably do not know many if any of you. I do not post at "the other site" (it's okay to just say CC in reference to it), nor do I even go there to read articles or posts.

I do that because I write most of the articles here and I don't want my words to be influenced by anything I see over there. Naturally, that also means I do NOT follow any CC "politics" or know who is who in the forums over there. I was told someone named Mach had left and one of my staff people suggested I invite him to come here. He graciously accepted.

The advantage here is that you are all used to how the boards work, but if you have any technical problems just send me a private message. And lastly, I will not be hovering here, I am sure you all already have good forum etiquette so that part is all up to you.

I just want to mention that we have another area for non-cruise related posts called "chit-chat" here: Chit - Chat for Cruisers - CruiseMates Cruise Community and Forums

We understand people talk, so feel free to chat away here within your posts in the Carnival board - you Crazies you. But we also hope you will be helpful to our other readers who come in looking for honest cruise advice.

That's it - see you on the boards. By the way - we have some of our people on Breeze right now if you want to read their adventures just look for the sticky at the top of the Carnival section.


Paul: THANK YOU ... you made my "cruise" day!!!

My pleasure my friend. Think back a few years....isn't this a much better way to start out on a cruise board? Certainly glad you're here!

Whoo hoo! Happy Friday to all.

I am here too but seem to have much more limits on my time these days and may not be here often.

I think I had a name on here long ago. It seems very familiar but it was several years ago. How long do names stay valid? I wonder who I was back then??

It is great to "see" everyone and to have the opportunity to meet new folks.

I will have to check out more on the site in upcoming days.
