I hope you'll give this new forum a chance. You only need to bookmark the main roll call and http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=786 where you will find threads, much like the main Princess board, where people are free to start a thread about anything that relates to the cruise, tours, hotel advice, where to buy wine, whatever. Last year our roll call got deleted a few months before the cruise because it was too long. Another problem with it being too long was it was too hard to find info. Hopefully, with an expected huge roll call this time we wil be able to preserve information and make it easy for people to access the info they need.
Carolyn - I will admit at first I was overwhelmed by how many places I had to read in order to keep up. But now, as you recommend, I just have two marked as my favourites - the main roll call and the link to the "topics" board. Now that its up and running, it is very organized and much easier than scrolling through pages and pages to see if there is anything you need to know. This is my first time on a roll call of this magnitude! WOW!!!

I think once everyone gets used to it they will see how much better this is, much like the threads on the main Princess board. On a Cruise Critic roll call you have no way to separate subjects. If we lose the roll call thread because it gets too big, no worries with our new system at http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=786

Ann, I am so jealous. She crab soup and crab cakes sound wonderful. Can you Fed-Ex me some?

Thank goodness I did manage to get booked on the cruise and didn't miss that.
Dorothy;

Great news.....

Just so you wont forget who we are. We are "The Rockin' Royals."

The dignity of a royal (some royals anyway) and the fun loving exuberance of a rocker.

Let's hear it again for Lynda. And don't you ever myspell her name. Otherwise you are in t r o u b l e.

Don't forget to order your buttons.

Hard to believe our naming ceremony took place well over a year ago back in March.
