If you want to find cruisers on your sailing date, you have a better chance on cruisecritic.com. Cruise-chat is great for getting information and chatting with friendly people, but it is too msall to meet people from your cruise. Go to cruisecritic.com. You click on BOARDS; then on ROLL CALLS; then on PRINCESS; then on STAR and find your date. K did this for a REgal Princess trip I just returned from, and met loads of great people. Hope this helps you.
