Just wondering if any of the daily readers and posters here follow the boards when they are on a cruise. Obviously I know those who post "live" are on, but what about the others?
I do not pay for internet on board. On my last cruise, I was happy to get to port so I could go online to read what was happening here. Seems kind of silly that I'm on a cruise, but wondering what I'm missing on Cruise Critic...
Because internet on board is so slow I only use it to quickly check email.
In port I almost never use internet since I'd rather sightsee.
However, in 2010 because our Alaska cruise on HAL was the first time for the 14 day itinerary and we were on the very first one, while onboard I did check in on the Alaska board to let them know what those on the other 14 day same itinerary could expect. In the months before the cruise we'd all done lots of chatting there about the new itinerary so it was helpful to them that I did some posting. I also used the free computer time in Juneau at the library after finishing our morning tour and before taking the Mt Roberts tram.
Other than that time I never check Cruise Critic while on a cruise.
