Sorry to hear you got cross ways with C.C. I use their threads myself and can see how there might be a short fuse knee jerk reaction to someone criticizing them. You will be much happier here, welcome aboard.
Actually, I began using Cruiseline some years ago but only for an occasional cruise review. It wasn't until a couple of years ago when C.C.s review site was all screwed up, at least for my computers it was, that I began to focus on how much better and comprehensive Cruiseline's review format was, particularly with regard to cruise photos.
Anyway, CrusinTim's experience with some C.C. posters reminds me of one similar experience. Due to suggestions by a couple of cruising friends that Oceania Cruises was a line I might like I decided to look into them since their sister line is Regent, one we use sometimes. I first ordered one of their brochures, but before it got here I got to looking at their website. We like Regent's concierge suites, which are very large but don't require that you pay for a butler to get one (Regarding butlers, been there done that, once, besides being expensive it is a pain to have them continually knocking on the door, the cabin stewards do just fine.) Looking for something similar with Oceania I discovered that their most desirable cabins required butler service.
So, on their website, it appeared to me that the next best cabins to the butler ones did not have refrigerators in them (As it turned out they do, but their website was very convoluted and confusing to read, leading one to determine they didn't have refrigerators in those cabins and I read it carefully. When my brochure finally arrived it was much better written and cleared up that question.) However, in the meantime, before my brochure got here I posted on C.C.s Oceania forum asking that question. I was really taken back by the responses. None of the posters really tried to help, instead, sort of like what CrusinTim ran into, at least 4 posters accused me of being "one of those" who just look at the "pretty pictures" and don't or can't read.
I asked two other questions, one was about room service for the cabins below the butler, turns out the only service provided in them is for a continental breakfast, cold, nothing hot. What I got was confusion and lengthy diatribes about how one doesn't really need to have meals served to them in their cabins or on the balcony. But if one does want that, a butler should be required in addition to the steward in order to handle such (That is bunk as we have had dinner champagne balcony service on Princess, that is out of this world, what a bunch of crud to contend that you need a butler for such.). Next I mentioned I don't care for the butlers since they drive me nuts and would really like to get one of their smaller suites and not have the butler. I got all sorts of antagonistic responses to that one, mainly from those who like butlers.
Anyway, I was so soured on C.C.'s Oceania posters I never want to be on a vessel with their ilk, so I quit considering Oceania. Besides, their cabins are miniscule with very limited cabin meal service, compared to Regent, HAL and Princess, unless of course you are in the market for a "butler".
