Brand X not getting raving reviews for new format

I'm curious to know if C.C.'s attempts to redesign their forum has resulted in any new members flocking over to Cruiseline?

  I realize I'm a creature of habit and it takes me quite a while to get used to new ideas, but so far I don't see anything I like about their new format. Appears I've got a lot of company too. I guess a little patience would help in getting used to it but that's not their big problem in my assessment. What I see they have accomplished is getting rid of a number of helpful posting features with no new ones added. Maybe they are trying to save time and money, sort of like some of the cruise lines have been doing.    Apparently they want to cater primarily to those who do internet on their phones. I'm old school, only use the PC or my laptop.

That is PRECISELY why I am here.

Those clowns at CC think they know EVERYTHING and have DICTATED how things will be with NO exceptions.

Fine by me.

I still see the old format. I checked the announcement and it says it will be rolling out over the next week. Some may see new format, some old, and some could see different format on different devices.

I rarely use my tablet or phone to check the forums, so if that's the direction they're headed for, it's one more reason I'd rather be on Cruiseline Big Smile

Same here. Over the last few days folk were posting and complaining about the new format. I didn't get it until today. Ugh

New format? I was looking at cruises today and saw the regular one. Are they bringing back a forum?

What is CC?

Oh! I was going to say I'm still seeing the old format (was there yesterday), but just checked and the new format popped up. It's...different. As long as I can still search & find info, I'm good. However, for real communicating and sharing, HERE is where you'll find me. Happy

What a goof I was thinking you guys were referring to Carnival Cruise. LOL

Johngold, CC is referring to cruise critic, a site I haven't visited in eons because I just don't like it.

I was still on the old format yesterday -- haven't checked yet today -- gotta stop here first!

That other board/forum.

hummmm, sounds like another cruising forum I was on for a long time
