A little bit slow, but otherwise fine.

It takes me 10 to 15 minutes to get in here every time. I click on the forum link on the home page then click on "see all forums" and it takes me to the cruise line forums. I go back and start over and still the same thing. Eventually it will bring up the "chit chat" option but even then it is not a guarantee that I will get to "Chit Chat" Eventually I get in but it is darn frustrating to have this happen every time I come here. I asked a few days ago if anyone else was having a problem but got no reply.

Laura,
I can't recreate this. From the homepage you can just click "Cruise Travel Forums". This will take you to the message board index. You do need to scroll down to get to Chit Chat.


I would bookmark chit chat in your favorites. If you already have it bookmarked and saved in favorites then delete it an re-add it.


It isn't a site problem.


Take care,
Mike

Mike, scrolling down is a lot easier said than done. Most of the time the moment I take my cursor of the cruise travel and forums link to get to the chit chat link it all closes up on me. It takes several times for me to get there. Then when I do it is not a guarantee that the link will take me where I want to go. Most of the time I end up in the cruise line forums. To say the least this is very frustrating for me. I would not be surprised if it is this lousy computer. I can never stay on FB too long before it freezes up on me and I have to reboot. I have learned a lesson. It was my first HP and will absolutely be the last HP I ever buy.

Sharon, I surely hope you do not jinx yourself. All I know is that I just never had these problems with my Gateway even as tough as I am on a computer. I bought this when the Gateway finally gave up and died after more than 6 years. That was twice as long as any other computer ever lasted for me. I am glad to hear that someone is having good luck with their HP it gives me hope.

I had the same problem, so it must be a Florida issue.


However it seems to be OK this morning.
