  1. Howdy @tribefan and @Host Jazzbeau I see from the signature & previous Roll Call posts the B2B cruises are on RCI so I have moved this thread to the RCI forum. Cruise Critic members that have sailed on Serenade of the Seas in that area should be able to give feedback there. I hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails., Host Kat

  7. @OnNay Howdy and welcome back to Cruise Critic! I see it has been a while since you posted on the message boards. Thank you for your new thread on the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum. 👍 However, please note the following information is at the top of each page in this forum: Note: This area is intended only for questions and answers relating to technical assistance in using these message boards. Please do not post general cruise-related questions or Roll Calls here. The Cruise Critic Roll Call thread for your line, ship and sail date is 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 your Roll Call thread, especially ones that have sailed your line, ship or itinerary before. Also, the Roll Call thread for your cruise is the ONLY place on Cruise Critic where you and your fellow Roll Call members are allowed to post personal ads about sharing private tours, excursions, transportation etc. with each other to save money. There is a "captive audience" since you are all sailing together! You will receive a much better response to your share request if you take some time to read the entire Roll Call thread, post an introductory post about yourself, and continue on with more posts to get to know the other members and allow them to get to know YOU first before you post your share request. That is the spirit of our Roll Calls. To explain our Roll Calls and finding the Roll Call thread for your cruise, please read What is a Roll Call? Everything you Need to Know and How To: Create A New Roll Call. For more information about our famous Roll Calls, please read the Roll Calls and Our Policy Regarding Facebook and Roll Calls sections in the Guidelines. It appears you can click here Celebrity Apex Roll Call - September 28th, 2020 for your Roll Call thread if that is your sail date. I sincerely hope all this will be helpful and glad to have you back aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat

  10. @carmenrosa77 Howdy and welcome to Cruise Critic!! Thank you for your new thread on the Ask a Cruise Question forum that is for general questions about cruising. 👍 Since your thread concerns a specific cruise line, I have moved your thread to the Carnival Cruise Lines forum where it will be on-topic. The majority of your fellow Cruise Critic members that have sailed on Magic frequent the forum and provide feedback there. Please browse through the thread titles on the forum looking for threads of interest. You will probably find your fellow Cruise Critic members have already posted questions and received answers that will be of interest to you. Cruise Critic is a great resource for new as well as experienced cruisers and we are so glad you found us! Please feel free to browse the Cruise Critic Community Categories list. Read a few threads in the forums to get a feel for what each forum is about. Make sure you read any pinned threads on the top of the first page of threads in a forum.

  11. @snag Howdy! Thank you for your new thread on the Ask a Cruise Question forum that is for general questions about cruising. 👍 Since your thread concerns a specific excursion in a specific port-of-call, I have moved your thread to the Ports of Call - Australia & New Zealand forum where it will be on-topic. Please browse through the thread titles on this new forum looking for threads of interest. You will probably find your fellow Cruise Critic members have already posted questions and received answers that will be of interest to you. I sincerely hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  12. @pinehurst2 Howdy! Some links trigger the Approval Queue for Staff or Management (not Hosts or Moderators) to review the post before allowing to post. Possibly the company has spammed our boards before and their info is automatically censored by the Cruise Critic software. See the following from the Guidelines: ... Question: Why don't you allow us to post about other cruise sites? My post contains *** and then you removed it! Answer: Actually, we do allow the legitimate linking to information at another cruise site, as long as that link isn't posted in an attempt to drive traffic to that site (in the sole discretion of Cruise Critic), or if the posting of such site is meant to cause disruption within the community. If a website's url or name is replaced by a series of *****, it may mean that particular website had spammed our community with advertisements for their site, or that member(s) may have posted in a way that we consider self-promotion or advertising... I suggest you contact the Community Manager about your situation via email to community@cruisecritic.com as also mentioned in the Guidelines: ... If you have any questions or comments regarding our posting guidelines or any content found on our message boards please be sure and let me know. I'll be happy to discuss them with you.LauraSSenior Manager, Communitycommunity@cruisecritic.com... Please send your email from your Cruise Critic email address of record and be sure to mention your user name. I sincerely hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  13. @DeedeeG Howdy and welcome to Cruise Critic! Thank you for your post on the Cruise Blogs & Websites forum. 👍 However, your post is off-topic here. This forum is for members to share their personal travelogue-type cruise-related blogs or websites with their fellow Cruise Critic members. I suggest you re-post your above message in a more correct forum or thread. Cruise Critic is a great resource for new or experienced cruisers and we are so glad you found us! Please feel free to browse the Cruise Critic Community Categories list. Read a few threads in the forums to get a feel for what each forum is about. Make sure you read any pinned threads on the top of the first page of threads in a forum. You will find very important instructions or information there. Anytime you need to start a new thread/topic on a forum, first make sure you are in the correct forum for your topic. Word your new thread title in a way to help the members know exactly the information you seek. This greatly helps the members browsing through the thread titles and if they know the information they will reply to you. It is best to limit each inquiry to only one topic or concerning one cruise line, one ship, one port of call, etc. and of course, on the correct forum. You will get more replies that way. Be sure to mention your cruise line, ship, port or sail date in your inquiry as that sort of information will help the members have the information they need in order to help you. I sincerely hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  14. @CC Help Michell Thanks for moving this thread to the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum! Howdy all y'all! The https://www.cruisecritic.com/vbulletin/countdown.cfm link mentioned above will NO LONGER work in a Cruise Critic signature. The Cruise Critic Countdown Clock from the old vBulletin software that we all knew and loved has passed, therefore it is no longer with us. 💔 😭 I remember there being a "birth" announcement when they were born, just cannot remember the actual date. Our beloved countdown clock has passed away and NOT to be resurrected in the future. ⚰️ This is due to the new servers back in May 2019, NOT the new Invision Community software currently in use at this time since the October 2018 conversion from vBulletin software. For more information about the situation, please read CC Help Jenn's post #57 and then Laura's post #62 in a thread in this forum titled Countdown Clocks started back in May 2019. Laura's post is on June 17, 2019 so that is the DOD I used below on the tombstone: 🛳️ OUR BELOVED CRUISE CRITIC COUNTDOWN CLOCK 🚢 RIP 200? - June 17, 2019 Please feel free to look for a compatible cruise countdown clock on Google or cruise line website. Or note the countdown clock types currently showing in the signatures of your fellow Cruise Critic members. Find one you like there or on Google, create it, and then paste the code into your signature as directed by your chosen countdown clock website. To everyone reading this thread, please check your signatures for old Cruise Critic Countdown Clock codes and remove them. This will get rid of the dead code such as the following: Also, you will then have more lines you can use in your signature! Please pass the word on to your friends and family that are Cruise Critic members if you see they still have dead Cruise Critic Countdown Clock codes in their signatures. BTW, just a friendly reminder of the Signatures section in the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free Cruise Critic memberships : Signatures Cruise Critic has the following suggestions for keeping your online signatures manageable: Keep your images to around three (approx) -- which would include a picture, clipart, photo or your countdown. Try not to have any one image that is TOO large, which then takes additional time for your fellow members to download, If you have a LONG LIST of prior cruises, think about chopping off some, OR rearrange them horizontally rather than vertically; From time to time, browse through your signature and eliminate any extra blank lines, or old countdown codes, etc. Cruise Critic reserves the right to remove/delete portions of your online signature and will let you know that we've had to resize your online signature. Also, do not worry about the amount of lines. They are unlimited now. However, it is greatly appreciated by all if you try to keep your signature as small as possible. It takes a while sometimes for them to show up when the Expand signature feature is used. I sincerely hope the above information will be helpful to all and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
