Hello Everyone!

UPDATE 10/12: We are continuing with our upgrade; we're making sure we bring over every last post of yours -- including all your member data. This takes time, and as I mentioned we want to get it right. So, what we're looking at this point is a full launch on Monday, October 15th. It will be automatic, you don't need to do anything or go to a new url address.

In the meantime, our Floataway Lounge remains open for cruise chatter. Look for the weekly Community Contest -- we'll be giving away twice the prizes if you participate!

On a personal note: thank you all for your patience. We're committed to providing you with the best possible community experience. Enjoy your weekend,

LauraS
Cruise Critic




UPDATED INFO ADDED - Floataway Lounge is OPEN for BUSINESS! Soon we'll be launching a new version of our Community Forums.

UPDATE Monday 10/9 1:05PM: We've opened up our Floataway Lounge to posting while we are implementing our new community forums. Here's a link: Floataway Lounge

Here’s a snapshot of what you’ll see and enjoy:

• Photo Gallery – with photo and video sharing capabilities where you’ll be able to create and share your own albums
• Activity Streams – Personal to you, you’ll be able to easily follow your favorite topics and forums!
• Easy embedding of videos and other content from a wide range of sites, from YouTube and Vimeo to other social media sites. Paste a link to an image, and it'll instantly appear in the topic or post reply editor
• Easy to use mobile version
• And – TaDa! – “Like” a post functionality. Yes, we can hear you now: “It’s about time!”
• Plus much much more!

What’s Not Changing

• Your post count will remain the same, all your posts will be accessible
• Avatars, signatures and profile pictures
• Member names and passwords
• Existing subscriptions to threads (topics), forums, etc.
• Legacy join dates will remain unchanged
• All the forums and discussion areas that you know and love , including our Roll Call forums

What Will You Need to Do?

• Upon your first visit, simply log in with your existing Cruise Critic member name and password

What is Changing

• The Cruise Critic App will no longer be accessible
• Lots of new features and tools

When will this happen?

Our existing forums will become read-only on Tuesday, October 9th at 7:30am ET. We're hoping to re-open for new posts shortly thereafter, with minimal downtime to our members of only a few days.  But we also want to get it right.  So, stay tuned to this announcement for future updates and specifics.
