I guess I should call this a North American Cruise-Chat Member Cruise, since the cost for most of us to fly to Europe would probably kill the whole plan - and vice versa. It is already a challenge just to decide on a cruise to take.
Maybe some day we will be able to arrange a grand cruise that is a good fit for those on both sides of the Atlantic.
Let me just throw this out there;
I'm not campaigning for a West Cost port--I stated earlier I will go anywhere and I mean that--but how about this as grist for the mill;
how about a four-day coastal repositioning cruise, say L.A. to Vancouver or Seattle as the cruise-chat cruise; and those that wanted could stay on for an Alaska cruise; or the other direction--Vancouver to L.A. and then a Mexican Riviera cruise.
I know one of the first objections would be, "that's not a very interesting itinerary"; but the ship and the itinerary are not really the objectives here, are they? It's getting the group together.

Would have been fun to join the cruise described in the Deutch forum, even though I can't speak Deutch so well.. lol
actually there won't be that many organized activities on our "European member cruise" that would require you to speak or understand German. And of course the official onboard language onboard the "Color Magic" is Norwegian, which could come in handy for you.
What a ninny! I voted then wasn't sure as soon as the page came up for the tallies if I hit vote or results. I think it would be a fun idea, but not sure one bowl could hold this many nuts at once. Funny how a chat room makes friends without even seeing each other..comradeship I guess.
