Default Articles Written by Cruise Line Employees

I believe that if an article on CruiseMates home page is written by a cruise line employee, it should be so noted. There is nothing wrong with CruiseMates getting cruising expertise from within the industry, the reader should just be informed so that they can apply their own discretion as to how much credibility can be assigned to a specific article.

The new article about cruise costs was written by Tim Rubacky of Prestige Cruise Holdings (PCH). PCH is the holding company for both Oceania Cruise Lines and Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Tim used to be employed by CruiseMates (IIRC).

just my two yen,

Rerun? It talks about fuel surcharges so I thought it was recent.
