Reminder re Discussion/Recommendations regarding travel agents!

Recommended Posts

There are been a couple of threads recently that include names of travel agents/agencies and some discussion of them, which is not permitted under Cruise Critic guilines located at http://boards.cruisecritic.com/faq.php?faq=guidelines


In part, the guidelines state:


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.


Touting of your personal cruise agent or cruise line "personal cruise consultant" (or any other venue by which you purchase a cruise) is not allowed on our message boards. Postings that contain "tell them John sent you" will be removed without notice.


This means you should not ask about someone's travel agent, nor should you respond in kind. Offering to email someone your travel agent's name or info is also not allowed, nor is asking members to email you for the information.


It also means you cannot post links to travel agencies, no matter what the specific reason.


Cruise Critic will remove violations of the "third-party recommendation" guideline without warning. Additional posts will result in permanent suspension of your privileges.



Your cooperation is appreciated and if you have any questions or need clarification you can always email community@cruisecritic.com. Thanks!

Thanks, i think this is a good rule, I understand why, the forum might be clogged with TA advertisements if you're allowed to post names!
