  1. @ferring Howdy & welcome to posting on the Cruise Critic message boards! To help you out I have merged your thread into one of the previous threads concerning your topic. We have trusted members that have discussed this many times. Hopefully this thread will be helpful information for your situation. 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. Also, many of the major cruise lines forums have a FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) topic that has been created by our members. Give that a try first. Browsing is your #1 best resource! Please post your messages in an appropriate topic so that you'll receive the best possible response. It is very time consuming to move misplaced messages that are in the wrong topics. Again, I sincerely hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard the Cruise Critic message board! Happy sails, Host Kat
  2. Howdy @Stickman1990 Did you check out the information in post #13 on the first page of this thread? Hopefully something there will be helpful! Also, please note Jenn's post #27 above. Happy sails, Host Kat

  4. @Ziggy60 Howdy and welcome to Cruise Critic! Thank you for your new thread on the First Time Cruisers forum. 👍 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. You will find very important instructions or information there. To help you out I have moved your thread to the Silversea Cruises forum. It is a more correct forum for your inquiry about sailing on Silversea. The majority of your fellow Cruise Critic members that have sailed Silversea frequent the forum and provide feedback there. Also as suggested above, please feel free to browse & research the Ports of Call - Asia forum for information about Tokyo. You can browse through the thread titles on the forums 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. Since you are from the UK be sure to check out our UK Cruisers forum. That's a forum for cruising questions related to the UK or UK based ships. Also, don't forget to check out The Pub forum for chitter-chatter with other UK cruisers. I sincerely hope this information will be helpful and glad to have you aboard the Cruise Critic message board! Happy sails, Host Kat
  5. @Tracey2456 Howdy! Welcome to Cruise Critic and thank you for your first new thread on the First Time Cruisers forum. 👍 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. You will find very important instructions or information there. To help you out since you have such a long list of ports, 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 various Ports of Call forums for the places you mention. The majority of your fellow Cruise Critic members that have been to the ports frequent the various port forums and provide feedback there. Also, members that are locals living in the ports will chime in too. Please browse through the thread titles on the various port forums 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. 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. Also, many of the major cruise lines forums have a FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) topic that has been created by our members. Give that a try first. Browsing is your #1 best resource! Please post your messages in an appropriate topic so that you'll receive the best possible response. It is very time consuming to move misplaced messages that are in the wrong topics. 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, or one port of call 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 make your decision and book your cruise, please note 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 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 back & forth 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 all this information will be helpful! So sorry this is such a long post, but we are so glad to have you aboard the Cruise Critic message board and just wanted to give you some of the highlights about being a member. Happy sails, Host Kat
  6. Thanks for the links! 👍 Nothing has changed as far as I know. All forums show all pages for me as follows: 714 pages https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/29-oceania-cruises/ 3,296 pages https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/69-ask-a-cruise-question/ 37 pages https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/343-luxury-cruising/ 3 pages https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/2474-transatlantic-transpacific-repositioning-trans-ocean-cruises/ Example:
  7. Prior to the October 2018 software change from vBulletin to Invision you could click there to see their other reviews. At this time the feature is no longer active. However, it MAY be one of the many tweeks by the Tech Team still in process at this time. Clicking their screen name will only show the content of their previous message board posts, not their reviews in the Member Cruise Reviews section. Only if the member posted their review in a message board thread would looking at their previous posts show you their review.
  8. The auto-hidden post is post #4714 for me. Something in the post triggered the Approval Queue for Staff or Management (not Hosts or Moderators). See Jenn's post #14 in the thread titled Comment hidden. As I stated further down in that same thread, please be patient for it to be reviewd by Staff/Management & unlocked. If not unlocked for some reason, you should receive a note as Jenn states. Glad to be of service.

  10. No Report post from you indicated in the ModeratorCP area for USER REPORTED CONTENT. Just 'cause you clicked Report post does not send a report. Only if you click the Submit Report button and it appears you did not go that far. BTW, post #4663 for you is not the same for me. Hosts, Mods, Staff & Administrators have any hidden posts still counting in the thread for a total of 4721 posts so far. When I go to post #4663 it is by UKCruiseJeff not you. That's why giving any of us a post # instead of the actual link to a post is sometimes not helpful. To other members it will probably be okay for them to find it.
  11. @drsel Howdy! I have merged your new thread on the Ask a Cruise Question forum into the existing March 20. 2020 thread on the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum titled Cruise Critic App is back but some issues. If nothing in this thread helps you, I suggest you send an email to help@cruisecritic.com from your Cruise Critic email address of record & be sure to include your Cruise Critic user name. Also, explain the situation with lots of details such as the type of device you are using, any pertinant screen shots, etc. Happy sails, Host Kat
  12. @Lois R Howdy! Sorry, but I am not that tech savvy. Perhaps you need to clear your cach, history or browsing data. I suggest you send an email to help@cruisecritic.com from your Cruise Critic email address of record & be sure to include your Cruise Critic user name. Also, explain the situation with lots of details such as the type of device you are using, any pertinant screen shots, etc. Please remember, emails to Cruise Critic are answered in order of receipt. With over a million and a half members sending emails 24/7 from all over the world, please be patient for any action. The Hosts/Moderators are non-paid volunteers and work the boards when their real life permits. Most Staff/Administrators work regular weekday business hours. Happy sails, Host Kat
  13. @molsonschooner Howdy! Thank you for your new thread on the Gulf Coast Departures forum that is for general questions concerning hotel, transportation, dining & embarkation. 👍 Since your thread concerns a specific port-of-call, I have moved your thread to the Ports of Call - Caribbean - Cayman Islands forum where it will be more 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. Locals from the area frequent that forum. Also, I suggest you browse the Disabled Cruise Travel forum. That's where cruisers with physical limitations share their advice & experiences. I feel sure there will be others there that have experienced Grand Cayman in a scooter. I sincerely hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
