Default new to site but not cruising

Coming over here from you know where. I see some familiar screen names. Some general questions about rules and regs on here. Is this a more liberal site which allows some spirited conversations without the threat of timeouts and thread moving?? Really enjoy chatting about our cruises with a bit of snarky thrown in.

Welcome.

We are a good group. We don't mind a good conversation but will not tolerate direct attacks on other posters.

Have a good time,
Mike

Open debates sounds great. No personal attacks, just some good old fun poking.

Welcome!

A smaller group allows you to get to know someone more instead of just recognizing their username. Also we have PM which is great and they are a bit less harsh when it comes to what you can and can't post(not unlimited but not dictators either).

Welcome Golf,
I take it from your SN, you have cruised before and may in the future?? Yes, I think you may like some topics in the "open debate" forum... There is also chit chat that may interest you as well...Be sure to share some of your cruise stories, we're all ears :-)

Me too.. coming over here from "you know where" ...after I had a post removed for saying that HC cabins should be booked by HC pax.. and that I, myself, am an HC person.

My post was probably removed by a moderator who books HC cabins for themselves when they don't need them.. ooops.. did I say that outloud??

Hope no one here takes offense to my humble opinions

You could always start some threads over here with the sale posts that you started threads elsewhere and see what the reaction is ?

Zydeco glad to see you. Heard you were around. Cruises sometime in the 90s was Carnival Festivale
2005 Carnival Glory
2006 Carnival Glory
2011 Carnival Legend
2012 Carnival Destiny (its last as Destiny)
2012 Ruby Princess
2013 Caribbean Princess
11/14 Ruby again
04/15 Caribbean again
We have migrated over to Princess I think. If a deal may go back but I prefer the ambiance of Princess. I have owned my own restaurant and our son is a medallion wearing Chef, so I get opinionated on food. We cruise to relax, have a cocktail and have fun. I'll try to behave but one never knows....
