Default Cruise Gripers, who do they ask?

I've now been about here for a while, and do not expect my opinions to be taken into account re this posting. But who do you as seasoned fellow gripers listen to regarding advice on future cruises as hardened cruisers? Or are you like me and just do it yourself based on experience and the line?

Personally over the time I've been here, I listen to only a certain bunch of people and respect recommendations from only a handful or less regarding my options for my future vacation, they know who they are.

So is there a club that seasoned cruisers or gripers listen to for advice? And what makes you think.....I'll take that persons advice

I always listen to the folks that stay on this site 24/7. I figure if they don't have a life outside this board, they must know a lot about cruising. Of course I wouldn't trust them on any other topic. ; ) Just kidding of course!

I really look to those that seem to really care about sharing information and ignore those that are getting on the board just to make noise and play the Devil's Advocate. Personal attacks are a dead giveaway of someone's advise you might want to avoid.

Will there be a secret hand shake and a decoder ring too?

I listen to my mother, my dh and DavidB and that's it. They all come from across the pond - that must count for something. :o) I really think these message boards have valuable advice (except maybe gripes - but that is mostly just fo fun). You just have to take it all in, sift through what is important to you - and ignore the rest. Or ignore it all - whatever the case may be. If I had to choose just one person on here for actual advice - that would have to be Kuki - besides he's Canadian eh! and very well informed. I love his write-ups. TTFN Jennifer

Zack - there's a reason why a lot of Canadians are active on this board -

There's no hockey on TV. That's it.

banker - there's no hockey on tv - really. Is that why my dh is always hanging around watching the Designer Guys and Trading Spaces with me? He prattles on about paint swatches and drapery fabric. Now I know why. Had me worried there for a minute! ttfn Jennifer
