Default I feel so alone

About 13 months ago I posted on the Lets meet on board area for our Anniversary trip aboard the FOS on the Sept 6, 2209 sailing. I have not yet received one reply to my "Lets meet." On another site I psoted the same message and received several replies, however the folks who responded on that site seemed a little "uppity" about the amount of cruises they have taken and such. One of the best parts about crusing is the people you meet on board. We are friendswith sveral people we have meet on board during our two previous cruises. I guess I am a little disappointed that no one had contacted me to meet for drinks etc...

Just hang in there Deb, you still have time before the cruise to meet fellow cruisers.

It might be because no one knows where they'll be cruising to in 200 years

Hang in, someone will chime in.

as it gets closer more posters will surface...I always have fun meeting people in the boarding area of the plane to the port..they notice either your luggage tags on your carry on, or you can just spot "cruise folks" because we are very excited and talking about "their" ship

you'll have the opposite problem..you'll meet too many folks and not enough drink time

have a great cruise

Ok, now I see it, Deb listed her year to cruise as 2209, but I don't think that is the problem...

Sometimes cruisers will mention their cruise in the regular message boards, so keep looking through those weekly, I bet at some point, you'll find a match.

Debs it is the same for me too. Cruising just a couple of weeks away and nobody joined in on the roll call. I'm thinking I'll have the flowrider to myself however just a few cabins left on that sailing it is almost sold out.

But not to worry once onboard there will be a ton of cruisers to yap with and toast a drink with. After all cruisers are the nicest people!

It's surprising but for some reason this year's roll calls have been eerily silent. It has been that way on other sites, too for all cruiselines and sail dates.

My upcoming cruise is sold out so I know it's not b/c no one is sailing ans the economy. I guess they are either shy or do not frequent chat boards. ???

If it's any consolation, there is no one listed for your sailing date on the "other" cruise web site either. Mine on 9/13/09 however is brimming with activity. I find that rather odd to say the least!

I must agree that cruisers are the nicest people and I allways find people to chat with.
