Hi everyone.,

I found this web site while reading an article in the travel section of our paper. I never knew that there was anything like it. We have cruised several times and met very nice people from all over.
My husband and I live in Florida so there are several ports to leave from. We will be on our next cruise in November (HAL Veendam)
Please, introduce your selves and tell me about your trips,etc.
We are looking forward to chatting with you and maybe be on a cruise together someday.
Carole & Earl

Hello Carole, we (Paddy & Joan) are new to this board also. I have visited many times only posted recently.
I think there is more than one section; this one seems to be the friendliest.
We are sailing out of Fort Lauderdale next month on Radiance of the Seas.

I am searching for any passengers who are sailing 4/18/04. The ship is sold out, but I can't find more that 14 passengers! Could be some big group keeping it secret, any ideas who they are?

All the best,
Paddy & Joan.

Hi Carole, welcome aboard. Glad you found us, we are looking forward to hearing all about your cruising experiences. I'm Tweety and I host Wednesday nite chat and would love to have you stop in and say hello.

Living in Florida gives you the advantage of being able to attend a lot of the precruise parties that CM's usually have. You get to meet lots of people in person that way and as you said perhaps someday we will all get a chance to cruise together.

Hi Carole, when I saw your name, I thought you might be French Canadian, since both names have a French spelling! I am Donna and I live in Montreal, and I wish I lived in Florida, especially right now when the winter just won't go away! Welcome to the CM board and hope to see more of you and hear about your cruising experiences!

Hi Carole,

Welcome on board our cruise ship the "Cruisemates". We are Ray and Helen who live near you in Ocoee, Central Florida near Orlando.

We love to cruise and see the world. Been a few places and cruised a few times.

If you need more information about cruises, ships, etc be sure to ask away. We all, here on the ship "Cruisemates", have answers, most are true and some maybe fiction. We chat here about most anything. You may go to other locations and find a lots of poop, no I mean information. Try it you may like it.

Welcome to the boards, Carole. It is always good to have new people joining us here. I am also in Florida, but I'm on the east coast.

I'm looking forward to hearing more from you and your experiences with cruising. Like Tweety said, join us in chat in the evenings. It's a great way to feel even more a part of the CM family.

Phyll

Default Re: Thanks for the warm welcome

Hi there,
WOW !!! This is really nice of you all to give us such a warm welcome.
We live in St. Petersburg, Fl and depart from Tampa.

Where are the CM parties? How do I do the time what ever you call it at the end of your message, Phyll ? I'm not to computer savy, so make it easy.

We have been on Carnival; Destiny, Jubilee, Fantasy, Inspiration, and HAL ,Veendam.
I think that HAL is so much better, service wise, and the staff is very nice too. We are in our golden years (50 plus) so the disco, and party times are over. Now, we just enjoy the company of friends, new and old, to cruise with.
Happy cruising, and I will check out the chats later, Tweety. Hi to all my new found friends in Florida too.

Carole

Welcome, Carole. I'm sure you'll find CruiseMates interesting. There's just tons of travel information pertaining to cruising on this site. It seems that there are no unanswerable questions..

I've only posted a few months. My husband and I live in Southern California.

Next month, we fly to London for a week and then board the QE2 for a transatlantic cruise back to New York. It gives me goosebumps just to say it! This will be our twelfth cruise.

Again, welcome.

J.

Carole, there are instructions on this page on how to add the countdown clock to your posts. I hope they make sense! If you need help, feel free to post and someone will help you.

Cheers,

Welcome Carole! It sounds as though you are an experienced cruiser, so will hopefully offer some good insight on the boards.

Of course, I am HORRIBLE jealous that you live in Florida and can go to the cruisemates gatherings! Not to mention you have that lovely Florida weather.

Here in oh so cold Atlanta (after days of 70's we are back to the 50's mid-day and the 20's at night) we are waiting for spring to REALLY appear, not just tease us....

My sister is a HAL fan, too. I'm having to twist her arm to take a Carnival cruise with me next year! Enjoy your next cruise and please post a review when you return.

We are relatives of buck and Irene camper. Trying to find Irene, her last phone number states it is disconnected. You and your husband wrote a post on his obituary page. If you can help, we would appreciate it. Irene's mother was my great aunt Leslie, my grandfather's sister. Thank you, John

Johnny, who are you referring to, the original poster Carole? If so, she has not posted on these boards for many years, although she may be a lurker..

Wow, Bringing up this thread brought back many memories of good friends. You don't realize how much you have missed them, until you see their names.

Wow, this really is an old post - 2004 to be exact! So many old "faces" we haven't seen around in a while, wonder if they're still lurkers...

This person could be part of a group of one off spam posters as in the experience New Zealand forum in the Australia/New Zealand section but this one doesn't have an "about me" tab in their profile with a signature link to a spam website???

Moderating these boards, you can pretty much spot an oldy but goody, and, to see some Cruisemates that haven't been around for a while, makes you wish for a hello, remember me?

I do often wonder why these old posts pop up, other than for spam.
