Just back from the Silver Shadow and getting ready to head down to Mexico surfing (YIPEEE) and thought I would comment on Cruise-Chat.com.
The site is about 5 weeks old now and currently has 286 members and appears to be growing nicely. Many of us believe in the non-commercial aspect of the Internet and CruiseReviews.com is an excellent example of quality information being available without bias or commercial interest.
Cruise-chat.com is of the same standard. It will be what it becomes and what we make of it and nothing else.
Please notice that there is no advertising of any kind nor are there any links to other commercial sites. Most discussion boards count on banner ads for their income and aggressively promote their sites. Cruise-Chat.com is simply a place folks can post their ideas and questions without the fear of being sold something and also express their true opinions and experiences. While there are moderators for certain forums, this site is bascically unmoderated in that there is no approval process for the messages. They are posted as they are submitted.
So if you like the format of Cruise-Chat.com share the word with other cruisers because that is the only way this site will grow to become what it will become. If you don't like it or think it can be improved, don't be afraid to say so. That is how we all learn.
