Thanks Trip for the nice welcome! I've only been here for a little over a month after leaving, a very unfriendly message board. Everyone is so helpful and nice here with the occasional humor that I love and appreciate. Happy cruising to all, and I'll miss you after my cruise on June 17, as I will be returning to my other home in NC for the summer.

Don't they have internet in NC? You don't have to have a cruise booked in orfder to enjoy CruiseMates. Your love for cruising will still be there, and we are here to help the time pass until your sail date!

Hi Darlene
Yes, they have the Internet in NC but I'm such a tightwad I have it shut off when I'm not there.....lol. I was having some trouble with my computer the last time I was there too so I might have to get it fixed. I know, I'll miss this board so much after I'm up there that I prolly will be back on it asap. You guys are all great and I'll have to get my "daily fix".....

Darlene, it does take longer to get on Chat at first. You have to be patient. The desktop 'puter at home completely refuses to do Chat. But I go on so often now, that my laptop gets on fast. So keep trying! All of us Chatters look forward to welcoming you!

Welcome aboard, to all the newest CruiseMates family members! Everyone one of us have that common bond of being addicted to cruising! This is the one place we can talk about it as much as we like.

I AM TRYING TO BE PATIENT, I'M JUST EXCITED ABOUT GETTING ON TO CHAT.
I WONDER WHY A LAP TOP IS EASIER TO GET ON CHAT THAN A PC? I DON'T LIKE MY LAP TOP, SO I HOPE THIS WORKS FOR ME ON MY PC.


I HAD MY SNACKS ALL READY, TOO

IT IS AFTER 10:00 NOW, SO I WILL TRY AGAIN TOMORROW NIGHT.

I SURE HOPE I CAN GET IN.....I LOVED TALKING IN ANOTHER CHAT ROOM A FEW YEARS AGO(NOTHING TO DO WITH CRUISING), SO I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

I WILL KEEP TRYING UNTIL I DO IT!!!!!

Welcome to CM all you new posters. I've been here a long time now, and it's just one big family around here. We're always glad to have new folks joining us.

Darlene, Chat is open all the time, but the regular chat is MON thru FRI from 9PM to 10PM eastern time. Hope you can figure out how to get in.

There must be a secret passage or a gold key to get me into the chat room! I just can't seem to achieve it. I keep the board on all day and look all the time with no luck...

Maybe I am doing something wrong? I will keep up the diligent work and stay with it!


I will never give up!!!!

any suggestions??
