see that many people are posting their reviews on the message boards. I just want to encourage people to also submit them to the Reader Review section of Cruisemates. The ones I've been reading on the boards are pretty darn good.
I doesn't matter if you are a first time cruiser or have taken 100 cruises: Your opinion counts.
First time cruisers see things that many veteran cruisers no longer pay attention to. Veteran cruisers will have a broader perspective and be able to compare other ships and know what is normal and what is not. Above all, everyone can share their cruise experience.
No one can know if a ship is good or bad by only reading one reader review but by reading a number of reader reviews you will be able to see recurring themes and problems. You can also see the phenomena that one person's cruise from hell is another person's dream vacation.
So, even if you aren't a professional writer (I sure am not) go ahead and write up a review and submit it. It doesn't have to be a novel. We feature a review of the week on the home page. Who knows, maybe yours will be the next one. You can access it right at the Cruisemates.com homepage, in the Ship Reviews/Reader Reviews area.
