I'm sure those who frequent the CC message boards are upset that their message boards are down. I'm also sure they'll get them back up in some form soon.
And we certainly want to welcome everyone's posts here at CruiseMates! In fact, we ENCOURAGE your participation.
But I do think it's a disservice to our site to post in all the various folders about this issue. Only those in control of Cruise Critic have the real answers to these questions, and it seems obvious they aren't talking, or they'd offer some sort of explanation on their homepage, and answer the e-mail inquiries.
We have a message board folder for "OFF TOPIC" conversation called CHIT CHAT.
Here's the link to it.. < http://www.cruise-forums.com/list.php?f=67>
I encourage you to discuss this there, as opposed to using folders designed for specific discussions.
But please DO FEEL WELCOME to post in the various discussions going on, or ask any cruise questions or comments in the various folders!!
You get home just as I board a ship. Hope you had a great trip So I will probly be in here since this is more accessable from the ship. My son and Kiki are also on this cruise and it is a full house here.Looking forward to hearing what you write about the cruises.
Glad to hear u finally got out!! Be sure to pass my regards to Leif and Kiki for me. I believe myu virtual cruise report from Explorer goes up to tomorrow.
In one part, I think I actually mention Leif. In some ways Captain Ole reminded me of Leif.
Do drop us a line from the Vision.
Try posting anything like this on that website and it would probably be removed and your rights to post may also be eliminated. We here at Cruisemates wish to be helpful and friendly and think we do a pretty good job of it. We also wish to keep the message boards somewhat on topic which this certainly isn't. This is a board about RCI cruise lines. You were gently nudged to post in the approprate place is all. We like to keep our boards informative and friendly and open to all. If you don't like this board, then post only on the other site if that is your choice, or if you can get them to work. <G>
