For Mitch6381 (Sheri): I sent you a PM but have not seen anything from you since. I'd be interested in the Panama cruise if you're still looking for a partner. You can e-mail me at VivfromNH@aol.com.
I find the replies a little bit confusing and probably wasn't sure who you were replying to.
The Panama Canal Cruise is the HAL 28 Mexican Riviera + Sth Caribbean its sold as back to back cruises and leaves from San Diego through the Panama Canal onto Florida then again from Florida doing the Sth Caribbean. I think may be I didn't reply because you said in your original thread reply to me that you were looking in Nov 4 as I cant do that date and can only travel in Dec 2014 or Jan 2015. And this cruise leaves on the 8 Dec 2014. Let me know if you are still interested.
I was responding to "mitch6381", as it said. It would be a lot easier to keep track of things if posters regularly started responses with an indication that the post actually IS a response and not a new item. As far as I know, you and I have never before had an exchange.
December is no good for me; I have 4 family birthdays and 2 anniversaries in that month, besides Christmas. One way or another I will be doing a cruise in early November, just not sure which one yet. Next year, even January, I haven't yet given thought to.
I deleted many of the older, non-specific posts, but I do not want to delete them all as there might be someone from the past whom you wish to contact.
The "secret" to using this message board is to be SPECIFIC in using the name of the person (username they used to post) in your reply to that person. The people I see complaining the most about using the site are the people who don;t do the simple and logical things I suggested in the very first post.
When replying, say "To [username]" - then be specific about which cruise you want to discuss. Remember - the messages can be read by everyone. If you want to send a private message click on a username and select "send private message" - if you want to read your private messages - click on your own username in the upper right hand column.
Just to be clear - I know the name of this site is "CruiseMates" - but this whole "seeking cruise companion" idea just happened, it is not the reason we created the site. We have this message board as a courtesy to you, so please use it as much as you wish, but try to follow the guidelines.
