cruise.....still in, but..........

well, we are into February.  Have there been any bookings besides what we had at the end of last year?   Any inquiries ?   How many bookings are confirmed as of this moment ?   I just want to know before I start paying off the balance.   Thanks

I hear ya....Starting to get a bit of flack from the wife about this.

Just because we have to book off the time for her holidays now.

I will send an e-mail or two out.



trying to keep this near the top

Simon’s got all the details, but I will say it is very interesting how different people use in different ways. While some of us are here on the forum, others only use the Ship Mate app, others only interact on the Facebook page and so on. The Member Cruise will definitely include meeting folks in person who you already know from the forum, but you’ll also be meeting folks brand-new-to-you who are just as active in other aspects of social media!

I don't know about the others, but to me ( us) the basis of a cruise like this is to meet the people behind the avatars. The people we interact with and share opinions, and joke around with here on these forums. It's not about meeting someone who only uses the ShipMate app, or the FB page. That's like being seated randomly at a dinner table. Perhaps those who do not post here could be persuaded to come over, introduce themselves, and join in our discussions.

Sorry, I won't join FB. For several reasons. They'll need to come here. Obviously this is just my opinion. I can't speak for others. Not looking to start a mutiny here, but it's a big expense financially and physically for us to fly to Florida, stay in a hotel, and travel on a cruise line we have only one other voyage with ( and that one wasn't that great ) but given the other options, this one got our vote. Yes, we are spoiled leaving from NY all the time, I admit. But that works for us physically too.

All I'm saying is we all need to be on the same page when it comes to this cruise. It's a huge undertaking for those organizing it. It's greatly appreciated. But there has to be more interest from the people here.

Just voicing our concern. Thanks for understanding.

Unfortunately i can't make this cruiseSad since I am booked on another one but I am happy to bring it to the top again.

347 days.

And there are quite a few on the shipmate app.

Hopefully we all get to go.

I've been toying with it ... I'd loved to meet some of the people from this forum as I enjoy the sense of humor. I too hate facebook ... refresh my mind as to itinerary & cost
