  1. @mj_holiday I couldn't agree more re: remembering the newbies, and what it feels like to be new around here. Glad you stuck around -- as are all the newbies to the site!
  2. Honestly there's so much to remember...thanks for sharing this! I can't believe it was that long ago too. Very happy to have you here, still, Lois. Laura
  3. This made my day. We're so thankful for members like you!\
  4. Quark Expeditions, the recognized Leader in Polar Adventures, has officially taken possession of the highly-anticipated polar vessel, Ultramarine. The official handover of the technologically-advanced ship took place in Brodosplit, Croatia, where construction on this game-changing ship started in 2018. During the last three years, a community of engineers, naval architects, welders, structural fabricators, riggers, electricians and hundreds of other shipyard crew—as well as the designers, innovators and operational team members in the Quark Expeditions head office—have worked night and d
  5. Everyone here at Cruise Critic's Community Team will keep Krazy Kruizers in our hearts and memories, and we offer up our deepest sympathies to everyone who knew her. A long-time member and contributor, her presence will be missed. Laura
  6. Member cruises -- anyone remember the ones hosted by our own Host Randy? Wow was he fun! Any memories of Host Randy -- maybe I can see if I can get him to "pop" in to say hello! I wish I could remember which one it was...but Randy entered the Talent Show on board....it was a Carnival Cruise (of course, his fave). There were so many Cruise Critic members in attendance at that show and he was awesome. I'm pretty sure he won! Laura
  7. Look far into the future...or just into next week 🙂 What do you see -- or would like to see -- in the future of cruising? What will the next 25 years of cruising bring?
  8. So do you think cruising has changed for the better over the past 25 years? Is there one (or two) things you'd like to see return from bygone days? What would you like to see disappear! How have these changes affected you? Be as specific as you'd like.....
  9. We'd love to hear YOUR Cruise Critic story! Do you have any Cruise Critic memories to share? Any photos of meeting other members? Maybe you took one of our famous (or should I say infamous) Member Cruises? All stories welcome!
  10. Hello everyone: First, I'd like to thank you for your patience over this past year with regard to the mobile app (both our version and inclusion in the Tapatalk comunity app). Unfortunately we are going to have to say goodbye to Tapatalk as the functionality no longer works with our platform. I know you've heard me say this before, but utilizing these forums via your devices browsers works really well. It's functional and it allows for easy upload of photos and video to the forums. If anyone requires assistance with the features of these forum
  11. Just a reminder that this is a POLL, you can simply select from one of our choices presented OR You choose OTHER and can answer this question in the repliesa nd please stick to the topic: How soon after completing your COVID-19 vaccination would you want to go on a cruise?
  12. Option two for me, although I'd definitely like to cruise sooner rather than later. We'll probably take a roadtrip up the east coast and visit some of the NE towns we missed last year on our Canada/NE cruise that was cancelled. Then, it's the Baltics for us!
  13. Please take our poll! And, if you are booked and are ready to go, share below! What do you have booked?

  18. Hello: This functionality is no longer available. We will, however, pass along to the product team.
  19. Someone wrote us today requesting an update on this. Unfortunately I do not have good news at this time. A fix is not in the near future. But, I can share that we are working with our developers (who are not Cruise Critic employees) and we're confident that there will be a fix -- we just cannot share when. I know this isn't what you wanted to hear at all; and we didn't want to share this information with you. I will tell you that utilizing the forums via your devices using the web format (https://boards.cruisecritic.com directly in your browser) isn't bad at all....perhaps not
