Welcome to Cruise Critic and the Singles Forum. 04.gif


Try going to www.google.com and typing in "single cruises". You will find many of the agencies your fellow Cruise Critic members would recommend, give feedback, etc. if they could. Please note the title description of this forum toward the top of the page:


Singles Cruises Which cruise line offers the most for single cruisers? Solo cruisers?

It says line, not agent, agency, or other cruise-related site or message board.


I hope you don't mind a friendly 05.gif suggestion, but you might want to read FAQ and Guidelines on the blue bar above. Especially the "Getting Started" section in FAQ. That's where you will see how a new topic should be consistent with the specific forum you choose. It also gives a brief summary of the topics covered in the different forum sections. Click here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/index.php for the list of all the Cruise Critic forums and be sure to read all Announcement and Sticky threads at the top of the various forums for additional information too. Since this is your first cruise, you might enjoy researching our First Time Cruisers Forum here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=97 or our Ask a Cruise Question Forum here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/forumdisplay.php?f=114.


Also, per our Guidelines:


There shall be no third-party recommendation of travel agencies on any forums within Cruise Critic. General discussions regarding the TYPE of AGENCY to be used to purchase a cruise will be allowed, as long as no recommendations for any source of purchase are posted.


Here is a previous Announcement from our Community Manager LauraS that may help explain further:


The third-party recommendation of travel agents and agencies is not allowed on Cruise Critic's Message Board forums.

Posts recommending (or warning against) travel agents, travel agencies, cruise-only agencies, travel/cruise brokers, or Personal Cruise Consultants at any cruise line, or any other source where consumer can purchase travel will be removed from the boards. This also includes any comments included in signatures requesting members to e-mail you for information about your travel agencies.


Additionally, posts by members requesting such information will be removed, so please don't ask .


However, the general discussion of the merits of using a BRICK AND MORTAR AGENCY vs. an INTERNET CRUISE AGENCY vs. purchasing from the CRUISE LINE DIRECTLY will be allowed. No recommendations for any travel source will be allowed.


Travel agents who participate on the boards are encouraged to include their company name in their signature. We believe it is in our member's best interest to know which members are travel agents -- so you can best judge the content of their posts. Travel agents may not include contact information of any kind any where in their posts or profiles on Cruise Critic. (Travel Agents may not request members to e-mail them for information, or include contact information of any kind in their signatures or posts). Finally, Cruise Critic reserves the right to rescind the above in the event travel agents/agencies abuse this privilege.


We anticipate your cooperation, and thank you for your participation.



Basically, the names, web sites, etc. of travel agents/agencies or other cruise-related sites or message boards --- even if "masked" --- are not allowed in Cruise Critic message board posts. Posts asking for the name, site or further information via e-mail, or posts offering same, will be removed as well as any replies to the deleted posts.


I'm sorry, but I have to edit your post and title since the name of any agency is not allowed in posts, even the ones that advertise here on Cruise Critic. This thread should be removed, but I am closing and leaving it so you as well as anyone else reading this thread will see this reply.


I sincerely hope this will be satisfactory, even though it is not the type of answer you were seeking. You will find lots and lots of information on our various forums with browsing first as mentioned in our Guidelines.
