It has come to our attention that there have been multiple disingenuous postings for tours and tour operators on the Hawaii forum.


Now, this can be done for one of two reasons:


- Obviously, to make you think others are recommending a great tour operator or,


- Done by a competitor of the tour operator, in an effort to have Cruise Critic taken action against the tour operator for posting fake posts.


Our message to you is one that speaks to reputation and validity of the posts you read on this site. As a general rule, we remove what is known as "ONE POST WONDERS". These are posts made by brand new members to the site, where the only contribution they make is to tout a tour operator or guide in port of call.


If you report these ONE (or two or three post wonders) to us, we will remove them.


You should base your decisions on the reputation of the member posting them. How do you do that?


1. Click their user name, choose "Find All Posts By". Review their posts; do they participate on a wide variety of topics?


2. How many posts do they have?


3. How long have they been a member?


This is not to say that the contributions of new members should be discounted. But when it comes to recommendations for tours in ports of call -- sometimes THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES, you should do your homework, and do it well.


Note that we are doing everything on our end to continue to investigate this issue.

Aloha Laura,

Would you please review posts by BBQ788, posting on Holland America Eurodam, Sept. 30, 2017 Hawaii, Seattle to Vancouver.

This "solo" person posted about "Ricky's Tours" in Hilo, HI and Sept 28 or 29 has changed their cruise from ours. I also thought I saw a post to 49teacher to meet up and from Australia, an earlier post from a prior roll call showed from Vancouver. Just concerned about legitimacy. Thank you, Sandipalms (Gayle)
