Default "Chit Chatters" - What do you ......?

Those who hang around mostly in Chit Chat, do you.......

Read the various articles on our Home Page?
Do you know that a new article or Blog goes up every single day Mon. thru Friday?

Do you regularly check out our other "cruise message boards" to see if you can answers people's cruise questions, and share your experiences?

Or, is Chit Chat where you choose to spend your time, just chatting?

Yep, me too. I don't read all of the different threads every day, but I do indeed, read lots and lots of stuff on CruiseMates on a regular basis. Thanks for having such an entertaining, and informing site for those of us who "live to cruise".

I go to home page during the week; especially interested in news articles. I read "reader reviews" if they are updated and look at hot thread. I read blogs on occasion. I go through certain cruise line forums and cruising forums and also forums for ports.

I usually go to chit chat first. Then to the cruise lines boards. I do scan the front page and check out some articles. I usually check in several times a day.

I don't know if I've ever been to the homepage!

I come here first. Right now I have a cruises booked on Royal and Disney. I check Royal page daily. I check Disney page weekly/monthly beause there is not a lot of activity. I periodically check Carnival or HAL to see if I can answer any questions.

I periodically check All things Cruising, Ask Cruisemates Staff, Cruise Cuisine, Cruise Dress, Tipping, and Family Cruising to see if I can answer any questions.


I'm booked on a Meet&Mingle for the upcoming FOTS cruise with another message board. There is very little activity on the Meet Aboard section of this site, so I don't even bother checking here. I also periodically check the Cruiseline page of that site too to see if there is anything posted pertaining to my current sailings.

I'm booked on a Cruise Meet for our Dream Cruise and a Fish Extender Gift Exchange (also with another board that is dedicated to all things Disney including Disney Cruises). The discussion board moves like wildfire, so i only periodally check it.

I check in here, sometimes, and like to read your blogs, Kuki. Especially if you are on a cruise. I find it great fun to read about other's experiences on cruising.
I usually check in far more often if I have a cruise planned, but unfortunately, that's not the case right now.
But, it's not a forever thing.

Kuki, liked your article on your Crystal Cruise. Based on your complaints on dining room service, you should give Regent a(nother) try. Your pasta never showing up again should never have happened. All head waiters carry a little book to write down requests and follow up.

BTW, is CruiseMates now posting "Reader Review of Week, Month, Quarter?" The same Seabourn review has been on main page for quite a while.
