Please take a moment to review the following from the revised Participation of Tour Guides/Drivers, Tourism Website Owners, Locals in Ports of Call, Property & Business Owners section in the Guidelines:

Tourism website owners, official representatives from port operations and residential property owners (and their associates, employees or designated representative) are encouraged to participate in the discussions on the Cruise Board and establish themselves as experts on a particular topic by responding to members' inquiries with useful answers. They may not, however, list or refer members to their Web sites. Tourism websites may include their business name in their signatures, and may include their website link in their profile only. No promotional material or conducting business will be allowed, nor may you recommend specific businesses in ports of call. This includes scheduling times of tours, confirmation of events/deposits/e-mail receipt, etc (and any other discussion determined to be of a customer service nature in the sole discretion of Cruise Critic). Only items of a general nature may be posted on the forums.

Locals living in ports of call are encouraged to contribute, as long as their recommendations are general in nature. Those living in ports of call who recommend individual businesses or tour operators will find that their posts have been removed and their posting privileges may be suspended.

Our Ports of Call forums are meant to be a place for cruisers to exchange information with other cruisers. Therefore, the participation of Tour Operators, Tour Guides, Drivers, Business Owners, Transportation and Taxi drivers is not allowed.

Thanks for your cooperation!
