I posted a /this morning and now can't find it !Howdy yanadog! Welcome to the Need Help Using The Boards? Ask Here! Forum!
You posted in the TEST FORUM. Note the following in the little box at the top of that forum:
TEST FORUM Not sure how your signature will look online? Want to try a new avatar or posting in a new color? Use this space to try it out!
That forum is just for test posts. Any inquiry posts should be in the correct forum where they would be on topic.
In your case, your post should have been posted on the P&O Cruises ( UK ) Forum since it concerns that particular cruise line and one of their ships. To research for information from your fellow Cruise Critic members that have sailed your line or ship before, click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=38 for the P&O Cruises ( UK ) Forum. Click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=114 to research our Ask a Cruise Question Forum for even more information. To research for information about your ports of call click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=5 for our Ports of Call Forums. That's where you can research for hotels, tours, excursions, transportation etc. Your fellow Cruise Critic members post their reviews/recommendations there.
When you have a chance, please read the Sticky in the top of this forum titled What is a ROLL CALL and how do I find mine? at http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=44773. The post will tell you important information about the Cruise Critic Roll Call Forums and how they are the place for you to get to know the other Cruise Critic members sailing with you before the cruise.
You did not mention your sail date in your post on the TEST FORUM so I cannot direct you to your specific Roll Call thread. Make sure you are logged in with your user name and password and then click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=384 for the Ventura Roll Calls Forum. Next, click the thread with your sail date in the title to open your Roll Call thread. Read through all the posts to get to know your fellow Roll Call members. Then use the Post Reply button to post an introductory post about yourself. I feel sure your fellow Roll Call members will post welcoming replies to you on the thread. You can then take your online relationship from there by continuing to post on the thread. Remember you must be logged in with your user name and password to be able to view or post in any of our Roll Call areas. Roll Calls are for logged in members only.
Your fellow Roll Call members may have important information posted in your specific Roll Call thread for your line, ship and sail date. In fact, your Roll Call thread is the ONLY place on Cruise Critic where you and your fellow Roll Call members may post personal ads about sharing tours, excursions, transportation etc. with each other. There is a "captive audience" since you are all sailing together!
Click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/index.php for the list of all Cruise Critic message board forums and be sure to read all Announcement and Sticky posts at the top of the various forums for very important information or instructions.
Please feel free to use the Search this Forum feature on all Cruise Critic message board forums with your key word or words. It will help narrow down the threads you will want to read during your research. Also, you can see if your inquiry has been asked and answered before. And it probably has... many, many times!
Click the Search this Forum feature to open the drop down. Type in your key word or words then click the little Go button. I suggest you do not try a search with too many or too common of key words at one time. This will sometimes overwhelm the search feature with too many threads to scan and it will time out. From time to time, you may receive an error message that says "Search function is down". PLEASE TRY AGAIN in a few moments. This message will often pop up during the busiest times of the day.
Be sure to read our FAQ at http://boards.cruisecritic.com/faq.php, especially the Getting Started section. You will see how a new topic should be consistent with the specific forum you choose. It also gives a brief summary of the topics covered in some of the forum sections.
In our Guidelines, please note the Please Browse BEFORE You Post section since many of your questions may have been asked and answered before as mentioned above.
When doing your research, be sure you are on the correct forum. After you have browsed/researched for your topic and possibly not found an answer, word your new inquiry title so the other members scrolling through the thread titles will know exactly the information you seek. This will help the members as they scroll through the thread titles so they can reply to you. It is best to limit each inquiry to only one topic or concerning one cruise line, port of call, etc. and especially on the correct forum. You will get more replies that way. Be sure to mention pertinent information in your inquiry such as your cruise line, ship & sail date if it will help the members with their answers to you.
If you ever want to locate your previous posts or find out how to subscribe for reply notification, click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?p=20645350 for the Sticky titled Need help finding your previous posts? However, your post on the TEST FORUM will probably not be shown to you since posts in that forum do not count toward your post count.
If you wonder what some of the icons/symbols/arrows on Cruise Critic mean, just use your mouse to slowly hover your cursor over the item and most often a tool-tip will appear with the name or action.
I sincerely hope all this information will be helpful for a new member and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic!

Being happy does not mean everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.
