Ngaire:

For what it may be worth, I think moving the "Off Topic" posts to a separate identified forum is a very good idea. This way, anyone new to the board can go to "Cruise Talk" for information directly relating to cruise experiences, and can go the the "Off Topic" forum to see what other interests cruisers on Radisson and Silversea have.

This is not a small matter to us, as we have always felt that one of the MAJOR reasons for our preference for Radisson has been how basically nice our fellow guests are on that line. So the "Off Topic" forum gives people new to luxury cruising a chance to get to know what their fellow guests will be like, in advance. When such people go to the "Off Topic" forum, they will learn that we are not "stuffy" as they might have believed, but instead love our animal companions, cars, birthdays, jokes, and (for most of us) informality.

The importance of one's compatibility with fellow guests is reinforced by the contents of another cruise board (Cruise Mates' Cruise Gripes forum), where the majority of "Gripes" are about fellow guests. Your "Off Topic" forum gives a prospective cruiser a chance to "get to know" what fellow guests will be like, before booking.

Thanks,
Richard :) :) :)

I too think this is a great idea. When I first started reading CC, and started posting with questions, it was fairly cruise information-heavy (that was 1999). But later it got to be mostly chatter, and frankly, I was there for information. Later on it got intimidating (to me), since everybody seemed so clubby and even somewhat elitist.

But I have gotten to like the chatty side of this group; you're a nice bunch. So, we get the best of both worlds--quality information, and good fun. And I have not seen any sign of elitism either.

Works for me - it will certainly simplify things, and make it easier for find old posts for cruising stuff - and easier to find one's favorite OT posts

LCTer's are a very friendly, wonderful group of people. Not stuffy at all. I admit, I thought that Radisson would be a little too fancy for us when we took our first cruise. This will be a good place to check in on each other and keep the other "cruise talk" really that. Even when I wasn't posting I was checking in to see what was up with everybody. This is certainly one caring, down to earth group you organized, Ngaire. And you and Ken are the BEST! See you on 9/1/07! Judy

Has anyone done a cruise for their friends for a special event? I have 15 couples I want to pay for on a 3 or 4 day cruise out of Florida in Nov or Dec. I have never been on the less expensive lines i.e. carnival etc....but have been on 20 other cruises....We are not snobs just party people....we all winter in Miami area during the winter so it is not a problem leaving from Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. Any suggestions?

Well Carnival would definitely meet your "party" criteria. I think one of the newer ships, the Spirit or Destiny class would work best - we've been on Destiny a few years ago, and it was a party, but I actually like the Spirit Class ships a little better, they are a bit smaller, not much, but I liked the layout better and thought the rooms were a little nicer.
Royal Caribbean would probably also fit your needs, as well.

I went last year on Disney for 3 days with 35 relatives (onyl a handful were kids under 12)and we had a blast! My DH who is really not that fond of Disney in general, grudgingly admitted he had a great time and loved the ship. It was the perfect trip for so many people of varying interests to enjoy each other's company

As some one who has known Dave since about 1967 and Mary Elaine for not quite that long-- Welcome to LCT. It is about time you posted. Now you can keep up to date with all that is going on.

I think Pat will see this and can get in touch with you via the recent email both of you were copied on today.

Scam Alert:
I'm not sure where to post this but wanted to let you know what just happened on my Chase Freedom Card. Someone signed into the Chase Pay app on a mobile phone and bought eGift Cards with my Chase Rewards points. Luckily, I had signed up to be notified when there was any activity on my card so I got an email confirming the transactions. Chase has now reversed the transactions & issued me a new Freedom card but this is really something for all travelers to watch! Keep an eye on your accounts and set up alerts wherever you can.
