  1. @ras8336 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 port, I have moved your thread to the Ports of Call - Europe - Mediterranean - Eastern & Western - Italy Ports forum where it will be on-topic. This is where all things Capri, Florence, Genoa, Naples, Palermo, Portofino, Rome, Sardinia, Sorrento, Taormina & Venice are discussed. 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. Cruise Critic is a great resource 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 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. It will help the members to have the information they need in order to help you. Once you book your cruise, the Cruise Critic Roll Call thread for your line, ship and sail date will be 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 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. I sincerely hope this information will be helpful. So sorry this is such a long post, but we are so glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic and just wanted to give you some of the highlights about being a member. Happy sails, Host Kat

  5. @CLark_Rebecca 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 Holland America Line forum where it will be on-topic.

  6. If I understand correctly the Notifications bell works for members as long as the Cruise Critic feature is activated... unless the member's email provider bounces one of the Cruise Critic emails generated by the Notifications feature (the bell). Then the bell ceases to show new notifications or send emails. As mentioned in the other thread: ... Also, please email help@cruisecritic.com from your Cruise Critic email address of record and mention your user name. Explain the possible bouncing situation and ask if anything can be done by Cruise Critic... I suggest you too contact help@cruisecritic.com for assistance.
  7. Sorry 'bout that wrong link above that has now been corrected. Please see Post #2 in that newly linked thread thread:
  8. Please see the existing thread concerning your situation: Possibly your email provider has bounced an email from Cruise Critic causing the Notifications feature to cease.
  9. You are most welcome! Glad to be of service, Host Kat
  10. @bigrednole Howdy and welcome to Cruise Critic! To help you out I have moved your thread to the forum for multi Caribbean ports & itineraries titled Tales from the Caribbean -- Ask A Question / Share Some Info where it will be more on-topic, However it would probably be best for you to browse & research the following Port of Call forums for the ports you mention: Ports of Call - Caribbean - Cozumel Ports of Call - Caribbean - Costa Maya Please remember the following stated in the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free memberships: Browse Before You Post Browse a topic first to see if your question has already been asked or answered by someone else.

  11. @pacruise804 Howdy! Members start a new thread. This pinned thread was just to introduce the format for this forum, so now it is locked. Happy sails, Host Kat

  13. Howdy @pepster1001 and welcome to Cruise Critic! Thank you for your new thread on the Need Help Using the Forums?

  14. @Coat Just a friendly reminder... 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 such as sharing tours, excursions, transportation etc. with each other to save money or game players during your cruise. There is a "captive audience" since you are sailing together and posting on the same Roll Call thread! Please note the following from What is a Roll Call? Everything you Need to Know concerning personal ads for share requests also applies to personal ads for game players: ... Shore Excursion/Tour Shares in ROLL CALLS This is an excellent benefit of participating on your ROLL CALL. If you are sailing on a specific ship and departure date, you may post your share request on the specific Roll Call topic for your cruise. You are targeting the specific group of people who would be most inclined to share since they are already sailing with you. Please remember, do not start a new Roll Call topic on the Roll Call forum or any other message board forum with your share request. Use your existing Roll Call topic to post your share request. Please note, our Guidelines do not allow personal ads looking to share shore excursions/tours, transportation, etc. anywhere else on Cruise Critic. I'm New Here, Can I Post Looking for a Shore Excursion/Tour Share? Technically, the answer is yes. However, our ROLL CALLS are not a classified ad area for your tour share. They are, as mentioned above, a place for cruisers to get to know one another before they sail. You will receive a much better response to your TOUR SHARE REQUEST if you take some time to read the entire ROLL CALL; get to know the other members and allow them to get to know YOU first! That is the spirit of our ROLL CALLS. If my ROLL CALL is slow may I post it in other forums? No. Please don't post topics looking for others cruising with you or share requests for tours, excursions, transportation, etc. on any of our other forums. Roll Calls became so popular that there was a need to set up a separate area for them. We ask that you keep Roll Call type discussions on your existing Roll Call topic in the ROLL CALL forums and keep the other forums open for general cruise discussions according to forum topic If you have further questions, or need roll call assistance, please write to: Help@CruiseCritic.com... Since this type of advertisement for game players is posted on this forum and not in the Roll Call thread where it belongs, this thread is now locked. I will leave this thread here for a reasonable length of time for this reply to be seen then this thread will be removed. Host Kat
