Private Messaging?

Is it possible to send another member here a private message either through the cruiseline website or the shipmate app? I did receive one last week but no clue how to start one. I am pretty computer savy but this one has me thrown for a loop lol I can't see to find it. Just had a quick question that didn't really require a forum post.

There is no way to contact another member privately unless a person shares their information on the forum. Email addresses are not published in your profile. We have asked about doing this, but it hasn't happened, so if you want to contact someone, I suggest either posting a message to the person you want to contact, with your email address, or start a new thread with the member's name as the heading. Those are the only ways that I can think of.

ok thanks! Good to know. I have figured it out since I posted this anyways so it isn't needed but it would be a good idea to have it as an option. There is a "messages" option on Shipmate but I can't see how to send one yet someone did message me last week

RGJoyce - you already figured it out on the Shipmate app. Click on the UserID, message option, and type away. 99.9% sure ONLY the person you are messaging sees the conversation thread. I have used it a lot. You can initiate, you can respond. When someone messages you, you get a flag in the notifications section you have a message (little envelop shows up on the right margin). Enjoy!

I guess Shipmate is different- I don't use that app.

Hi RGJoyce! Hopefully in the future there will be a private messaging option on the website, but the Ship Mate app works great for that right now. Let us know if you have any issues with it. Thanks!
