Default POLL.. A different kind of poll... Favorite articles???

There's almost a limitless supply of information in the articles and reviews accessed from the CruiseMates Home Page.

Just wondering what some of your favorite feature articles might be that you've read during your visits to CruiseMates?

List any of the ones I wrote and you get a nickel

I loved the story you wrote about being a butler. I found it very informative (and amusing, and well written, and witty, etc. etc.) Now do I get two nickels??
Seriously it was very interesting to learn what it's like to be a butler on a cruise ship and the life they lead.

I particularly like the articles that deal with destinations. Kuki on golf in Hawaii, Harry on various west coast destinatins, Anne on Bermuda etc. I also like the articles that deal with timely / current issues like Katrina, or Florida hurricanes and how to deal with changes. Practical advice articles ie consumer issues dealt with by Art. I also enjoy the articles such as Kuki as butler or what's up with changes on Century that give a flavor of the 'insider' part of cruising.
Now let's see that's 15 cents from Kuki, 5 cents each from Art, Anne and Harry. Please mail to:................

Papa, you are too kind -- and also very polite.

Honestly, I always enjoy 'em all, but I think I always appreciate Anne's ship reviews the most. I find them educational, but also good for me on what to look for when I am on board.

Default Poll-Favorite Articles

I always enjoy the ship reviews. They're really very helpful, especially when you don't have an up-to-date brochure sitting in front of you. I liked Kuki's butlering experiences as well. Let's see ... what should I do with my nickle? Hmmm ....

The two that stick out in my mind are Kuki's Butler Service and the one about the amount of food served weekly on a ship (was that yours Trip?).

I have enjoyed all of the articles i've ready. My favorites are Trips and Harry's. Harry can place you on the ship, in the room with him and friends, and you have never left your computer. Anne's are great too.

I must've missed that 9000lb chicken article, but it sounds like I should look it up! The one that stands out is Kuki's Butler article, but I do like all the reviews, and all the different aspects of cruising
