It could be they were flagged as "inappropriate." Pictures that are not allowed include cruise countdown, screen shots, selfies, professional photos and photos that have nothing to do with cruising. What kind of photos are disappearing?

regular cruise photos, similar to what i have posted prior. that's the odd, if they were flagged then someone has a strange definition of in appropriate.

Even if the photo pertains to cruising or is of you on the cruise, selfies are not allowed. Also, group photos were the photo is made up of more than 60% of just people are not allowed either. Lots of folks like posting pictures of just themselves and while these are nice, they do not show anything about cruising. So, all those lovely photos of formal nights, etc. that have just a person's face are usually deleted. All photos need to have a recognizable aspect of cruising.


Glitch in the system, maybe??

Is this a new policy? Where else might I find this guide line?

i think any "cruise" related pictures would both be a good idea and free promotional items for both the cruise and the App. Call me Crazy , but i think seeing other people A. having fun., B visiting a new Port and posting pics of them doing fun things and C. seeing the people themselves enjoying a drink, pool, dinner, walk , dancing and pretty much anything else they do on vacation is a huge draw and makes me want to visit said port and meet nice fun people .

either way ..

I'd like to see where that is specified too. there have been all kinds of pics in here of folks enjoying themselves on cruises. isnt that enough of a connection? Im not much of a picture taker but I enjoy looking at em. I think time could be better spent removing the spam from old threads that get dredged up that we seem to be afflicted with lately...In order to post, you have to join, so its not a bot...but advertising your biz is clearly a TOS violation.
