  1. Howdy all! This thread has been moved to the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum where it will be on topic. Folks often forget this forum is here and post on other forums asking for help. Whenever you wonder if you are the only one experiencing a problem with the software, check this forum first. Often CC Help Jenn, Senior Community Support Specialist, has already addressed the matter. Please note there are previous threads on this forum concerning various ongoing software issues. Stated in the Posting & You! section of the Guidelines: "Browse a topic first to see if your question has already been asked or answered by someone else..." Here are a few on this forum: Also, please note CC Help Jenn's post # 389 on the not staying logged in thread for the latest update. Please be patient for Jenn, the tech team and the forums software developer to handle the issues. Thanking you all in advance for your cooperation, Host Kat
  2. Howdy @hmsvictory777 and welcome to the Cruise Critic message boards! Regarding your inquiry, you might want to research our Cruising Technology forum. Some of the members that hang out there may have a hack! 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 different forums to get a feel for what each forum is about. Make sure you read any pinned threads (aka Stickies) on the top of the first page of threads in a forum. You will find very important instructions or information there. Please remember the following stated in the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free Cruise Critic 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/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 only 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 your fellow members help you. I want to let you know the specific 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 your cruise. Your fellow Roll Call thread members may have important information posted in your Roll Call thread. Especially those that have sailed your line, ship or itinerary before. Also, someone there may have had the same situation and can help you. Also, the specific Roll Call thread for your cruise is the only place on the Cruise Critic message boards where you and your fellow Roll Call thread members are allowed to post personal ads about sharing private tours, excursions, transportation etc. with each other to 💲ave money. That is ... if COVID-19 protocol allows by then. 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 and forth to get to know the other thread 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 Call threads and finding the Roll Call thread for your line, ship and sail date, 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. We also have a Cruise Critic article you might find helpful too. 8 Reasons to Join a Cruise Critic Roll Call And don't forget, after your cruise be sure to submit your review for publication by Cruise Critic. Many cruisers will benefit from your experience! See How To: Submit a Member Review. Sorry this is so long, but I sincerely hope this additional information will be helpful to someone new to posting on our message boards. So glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat

  5. Ta daa! Threads merged. Per the Cruise Critic software all posts now appear in post date/time order on this merged thread.
  6. Howdy @tboonie from a fellow Texan! Welcome back to the Cruise Critic message boards! I see it has been a while since you have posted. Thank you for your new thread titled Carnival Vista Deck 3 on the Ask a Cruise Question forum. However, it is the forum for general questions regarding cruising. Your thread was off-topic there since your post concerns a specific cruise line ship. To help you out, I have moved your thread to the Carnival Cruise Lines forum where it will be on topic. Please browse through the thread titles on this forum to l👀k for titles 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 suggest you research the CCL Cabin Info Compilation - No Cabin Questions posted here please! thread. Be sure to use the Follow feature on your thread. That way you won't have to go l👀king to see if there are new posts on your thread because they will come l👀king for you as notifications! If you need more info on how to do it, please see How to: Follow Topics & Forums (Subscribed Threads/Forums Info). And don't forget, after your cruise be sure to submit your review for publication by Cruise Critic. Many cruisers will benefit from your experience! See How To: Submit a Member Review. I hope this will be helpful and so glad to have you back aboard the Cruise Critic message board! Happy sails, Host Kat
  7. Howdy @Englishjacq and welcome to the Cruise Critic message boards! Thank you for your first new thread titled EU Residents Cruising in Europe on the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum for technical assistance in using these message boards. However, it is off-topic in this forum. To help you out I have moved your thread to the Azamara forum where it will be on topic. The majority of your fellow Cruise Critic members that have sailed or will be sailing Asamara frequent this forum and provide feedback here. Browse through the thread titles on this forum l👀king 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. As for any other EU residents taking this same cruise, I want to let you know 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 thread members may have important information posted in your Roll Call thread. Especially those that have sailed your line, ship or itinerary before. Also, someone there may have had the same question answered and can help you. However, you do not mention your ship's name so I cannot merge your new thread into your Roll Call thread if one has already been established. Also, the Roll Call thread for your cruise is the only place on Cruise Critic where you and your fellow Roll Call thread members are allowed to post personal ads about sharing private tours, excursions, transportation etc. with each other to 💲ave money. That is ... if COVID-19 protocol allows by then. 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 and forth to get to know the other thread members and allow them to get to know you first before you post your share request.

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 we all agreed to follow when registering for our free Cruise Critic memberships.

  8. Howdy @Psoque Since Cruise Critic does not review messages before they are posted and cannot read through the thousands of messages posted each day, we depend on you and all our fellow Cruise Critic members for help. Stated in the Guidelines: "We encourage you to utilize the reporting system built into the board system; you'll find a Report a Post icon located in the upper right hand corner of the posting. Use it! We will review the report and take appropriate action." Report a Post is the route to take when seeing a post or thread that violates the Guidelines or the new COVID-related Discussion rules, is Off Topic, Harassment - Member Directed Posts, Advertising - Travel Agent(cy) Recommending, Nuisance Posts, etc. And in your case, it is also used when anyone needs to ask for a thread to be closed. See the pinned post by LauraS titled How To: Report a Post on the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum. Just click the the ellipsis (the three dots) next to the post number on the first post of this thread and click Report. If your reason for the report is not listed, you will be using the Report post text box where it says, "Optionally enter a message with your report." Just type in your message and click Submit report. Your part is done at that time. A User Reported Content list of reports is generated for review by all volunteer Hosts and paid Administrators. The reports will automatically show the important information they must have such as the forum name, thread title & link or post link in addition to your message. The volunteer Hosts or paid Administrators will review your Report post report when they can. I say "when they can" because all emails and Report post reports to Cruise Critic are answered in order of receipt. With about two million members sending reports or emails anytime 24/7 from all over the world, please be patient for any action. Also, please remember the Hosts are non-paid volunteers that work the boards when their real life permits. Administrators work regular weekday business hours & have many, many other job duties in addition to the boards. I hope this information will be helpful! Happy sails, Host Kat
  9. I have not watched all of these, but you will probably find some of your answers in the videos.
  10. Note some of the previous threads on this forum: How to find reviews I wrote Finding Reviews by Specific Members Past Reviews I suggest once you find your old reviews, if they are still available, using the various filters on https://www.cruisecritic.com/-cruises_/mra/?MemberName=tbmrt ... then copy and paste the link for each of your old reviews into your post or signature. The link in your signature for your past reviews no longer directs one to just your reviews. Any other questions about reviews, email reviews@cruisecritic.com from your Cruise Critic email address of record and mention your user name.
  11. Yes, this has been "cussed and discussed" many times here on this forum. I think a good answer regarding booze & Texas & cruise lines is post # 8 by chengkp75 in last year's thread Booze and Texas.
  12. Howdy @upwarduk Jackie, I have moved your post from a thread on the TEST FORUM forum to the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum where it will be on-topic. Please note the pinned threads toward the top of the first page of threads here. Read How To: Edit Signature. As far as I know, there should be no difference in how editing your signature works on www.cruisecritic.co.uk, www.cruisecritic.com or www.cruisecritic.com.au. However, if you still cannot edit your signature using the instructions from CC Help Jenn, Senior Community Support Specialist, send an email to her at help@cruisecritic.com. Be sure to send it from your Cruise Critic email address of record and mention your user name. Include information regarding the device you are using, your browser and any screen shots that might be helpful to her.. I hope this information will be helpful 🤞 and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  13. I think it would be best for you to contact the company for the correct answers to your inquiry concerning their terms and conditions. The folks here are not privy to the company's interpretation of their contract with you.
  14. Send an email to CC Help Jenn, Senior Community Support Specialist, at help@cruisecritic.com from your Cruise Critic email address of record & mention your user name. Explain your problem and include the device you are using, your browser, etc. Include screen shots if possible.
