I'm confused -- what is Bobal cancelled from-- Sailing on Royal Caribbean Group brand ships, posting in Cruise Critic or both.  

He has posted about being banned from sailing on the RCG ships.  

 

It is too late now because the edit time is gone on the post.  I was just pointing out that the post I originally quoted looked like you were saying Bobal is banned when in fact it is Arno who is banned from sailing Celebrity.  Bobal had provided you information and you made an honest mistake.  I was just trying to clarify so people don't think Bobal is banned.

I see where you are going.  I did make a mistake in making it look like Bobo is banned.  Let me clarify for posting.  Sorry for the confusion!!

Arno is banned from cruising.

BOBOL IS NOT BANNED

I also was able to correct my previous post to show Arno was banned

Awesome!  I thought the limit is 20 minutes.  I can delete all the posts if you want.  I was honestly just trying to help. 🙂

Thank you. It was news to me that I was banned. I just posted a supportive message explaining what seems to have happened with Arno 🤣

 

And don't worry Sherri, I know it was a genuine mistake 😁

If Royal Carib has a problem with some RCI-negative threads/posts, how will they know which (real-name)-guest is behind the screenname? Or does CC provide Royal with real names when asked for by a company?

The thing being discussed is really nothing like you described. Someone (Arno) used to keep a thread with a table of the key personnel on each of the Celebrity ships (Captain, HD, F&B Manager, Concierge etc) In November last year he said he had been banned from sailing with RCG as the company had received complaints from staff about him reaching out to them for info. The thread is here and his post is #1599 

 

Sherri was concerned this would impact on her, but her thread is informed by input from guests and not through making contact with staff/crew. However, he was one of Celebrity's top cruisers and it seems highly unlikely that he would be banned outright without warning unless he had overstepped some limits. A number of people asked questions of him regarding the ban and he never came back to answer them and doesn't seem to have participated in CC since then. But the ban was from Celebrity and nothing to do with CC. In fact further on in the thread (#1634) a CC host steps in to say they would never divulge personal information.

I am sure there is a lot more to the story that we will never know.  The mention that staff/crew filed complaints about his activities would indicate there was something else going on.  I would also suspect that there was some sort of warning given by X.

Bobal -- thanks for being so gracious about my mixing you and Arno up.  And also thanks for your very detailed information about the information that Arno shared.  I just want to get information from returning passengers on who is in the SL, CL and DL to keep my spreadsheet up to date.  I think some of the concierges may be moved around a bit with the ships returning at different times and with some having different home ports (eg Adventurer out of Nassau rather than a Florida port).

Agree Blizzard 54.  I just want to make sure that I'm not breaking any RCI rules.  it would be awful to be banned from sailing.  😪
