Default What's Up with the Meet on Board Postings?

Why are so many of the Meet on Board posts single posts? It can't be that no one from these boards is sailing. There are sometimes hundreds of views but no one posts except the OP. What is up? Just wondering.

A lot of people go on CC for their rollcalls. That is how many people first find CC, then they get sucked in and start to venture off onto other threads there. They bounce around in there for a while until they finally get bored or tired of the same people arguing about the same, you know, or someone comes back at them and tells them how stupid they are. You know, the one's that think they are somebody? But, then they realize that there has to be a better place, with not nearly the snobby people as over there. Wow, this sounds a lot like how I ended up coming onto this cruise site instead of staying there............lol!!!

Me, too. Since 2006 I've started 8 roll call threads on this site . Two responses: One received a post from someone going on the same ship the cruise after mine. Another received a post telling me to go over to CC because they had a very active roll call for that ship/date.

Do you think it is because the RCCL M&Ms are only offered through CC?

You are right, some CCers get a bit over the top on the main boards but I think the roll calls tend to be less so. Maybe it is the prospect of actually meeting the person that makes people more polite.

I did laugh when I read "they finally get bored or tired of the same people arguing about the same," because that is so true. This year the complaints about the change in the C&A program, while justified, have worn me out. And let's not go into the Royal Champion fight.

So, when you are cruising next? Want to start up a roll call on CM?

I looked at Liberty for 11/22 but booked the Jewel for 11/30 because I like the smaller ships. Hopefully we'll be on a the same sailing one day, then we could get a roll call going on CM!
