from Easy Diver:
Sharon and Larry will be on the Noordam Jan 6 thru 17. We will be snorkelling or diving almost every day (whale watch booked for Dominica).
We would love to meet some new friends on the ship.

Ps: we are not youngsters (60's) but we are young at heart.

If you show this note to to the desk manager, I think he will tell you how to locate us. We have a guaranteed balcony, but dont know the room # yet.

Keith is correct.

Please read the Sticky titled What is a ROLL CALL and how do I find mine? at The post will tell you important information about our famous 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. Your fellow Roll Call members may have important information posted in the specific Roll Call thread for your line, ship and sail date. As mentioned in the Sticky, the Roll Call thread for your cruise 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!

After you have read the Sticky for the Roll Call information, then click the link Keith provided to read through the thread to get to know the other Cruise Critic members sailing with you. Post an introductory message about yourself on the thread using the Post Reply button and we feel sure your fellow Roll Call members will post welcoming replies to you on the thread. You will be forming your on-line relationship with the Cruise Critic cruisers sailing with you.

By the way, your last name and address was removed from your post per the following from the Guard Your Personal Information Carefully section in the Guidelines you agreed to follow when registering for your free membership:

It is best not to post your real name, address or phone number publicly on the boards. Also, keeping as much information about yourself private should be your first priority. Tthink carefully before posting too much other personal data on any public message board forum, such as your stateroom number or your real name, city, state and dates of cruising!

If we come across a posting that contains too much personal information, we will remove it automatically. It is, however, *your* responsibility to keep your personal information safe. If you see too much information on the boards, please use the Report a Post feature, or write to [email protected] with a LINK to the specific posting/thread.

I sincerely hope all this information will be helpful to a new member and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic!
