Default POll: When and Where Did You First Post on Any Cruise Board

Hi,

I first posted on the old Cruise 2 Com about 1996 or 1997. It was a good board then and we had a lot of fun until it was invaded by a bunch of trolls. After that, I looked all over the internet and found Cruisemates to have the best designed and most interesting cruise site .

I also started on Cruise2, but left for the same reasons Paul did.

I think this was the first cruise board I started posting on, which is probably why I became so loyal. Started visiting and posting in 2002.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

Just a few months ago I found this site. This was my first board. First time I ever spoke in any chatroom was just the other day, here of course! I remeber being shy and scared the first time. Glad I found you folks first! Can't see going anywhere else.

Man, I sound like a virgin. lol

It was November 25, 2002 (no kidding), right here on CruiseMates. We were getting ready for our January cruise on the Norway, and my brother gave me the website for CM. I occasionally posted on [email protected] & CC after that, but now I'm limited to CM and CC (and the latter only for the roll calls). I sure wish that CruiseMates had a roll call board as well. Then I'd be posting on CM and CM only! But it's OK...I'm known by a different user name on the "other" board.

I found this site when I was researching cruising as a way to vaction. I started reading information on this site about 10 or so months ago. After checking out other boards, I decided this one seemed to be the friendliest and most helpful. I didn't start posting until after our cruise last December. Thanks to everyone who has entered my life through this board.

First board I ever found and posted on was with Expedia sometime in the late 90's early 2000. Shortly after I found this and many other boards. I use to post and read boards far more then I do now. I don't seem to have the time anymore to visit the boards like I use to.

Started on Cruise Reviews and Cruise Critic. Back then I was just browsing and looking for information on different ships. I was trying to find places to refer clients to. Somehow I got real lucky and found CruiseMates. I rarely stray away from here. I recently stumbled across CruiseCrazies but find that board to be awkward to navigate. I found another one called J.U.G.S. Just Us Girls Cruise Club. Posted a few times there never got any answers from anyone. CruiseMates is the only place I go to with any regularity. Looking forward to meeting CruiseMates on the upcoming GloryB cruise.
CruiseMates YOU ROCK!!!

The first board I found was Cruise2 and then there was a brief interlude at Cruiseaddicts but there's no place like home and here I am!

After reading a story about cruise web sites, I look at Crusiemates, Cruisecritics and cruiseaddicts. I come here almost every morning as long as I have a little time to see how everyone is and whats the weather in different parts of the country. Dropped Cruiseaddicts when I got not 1 but 2 virus worms from it. Go to CC for the roll calls. Wish we could get more people using the roll call boards here at CM.

Anybody remember the old (now defunct) Fielding's Board?

When I first went cruising (1994) and looking for cruise info I stumbled across the cruise board on Prodigy and Cruise Critic on AOL. Anne Campbell had just started Cruise Critic a short while before, and after hanging around there for a bit, they were expanding, and I went "to work" for her hosting live online and the message boards.

When she and Paul began to develop Cruisemates they asked me to "come onboard", and as the say... that's where the trouble started <G>

It's been a terrific "part time job" allowing a bartender to become a cruise writer <G>

The line up for my job starts over there>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I started over at Cruise 2; left there after the troll invasion and went to a few other boards. I think I started here in spring 2001...........now it is mainly here and Cruise Critic.

I forgot about Fielding's cruisecynic. I used to read that too, but they bashed EVERYONE who wasn't in the clique. UGH!
