  1. Howdy @Low Country Sandlapper You are correct about asking for or making TA recommendations on the Cruise Critic message boards. See the Travel Agent Recommendations section in the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free Cruise Critic memberships. Please note there is a Cruise Critic article Finding a Cruise Travel Agent (updated August 31, 2021) you should find useful. And in your case regarding a luxury cruise TA, see the Cruise Critic article Why You Need Luxury Cruise Travel Agents -- and How to Find a Good One (updated September 21, 2017). I hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat

  7. Howdy @RyanMFitz1 Welcome back to the Cruise Critic message boards! I see it has been awhile since you have posted on the boards. I also see you previously posted on the Gay & Lesbian Cruisers forum first but so far no replies there as I type this here. Perhaps the Cruise Critic article Top 10 Cruise Lines for Gay and Lesbian Travelers will be helpful. And regarding the post from @Elaine5715, if Jamaica is one of your ports of call please see another Cruise Critic article 6 Ways LGBTQ Cruisers Can Stay Safe on a Port Stop in Jamaica.

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 glad to have you back aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  8. @Barba21885 For each cruise I have taken I brought my "paper trail" of documents as back-up for my DL & BC. All were closed loop cruises. So far, *knock on wood*, no one has ever asked to see them at embarkation. However, YMMV! Host Kat

  10. Howdy @jmfdr Jan, it takes more than just G👀gle to find a good one. There is some "work" for you to do... be it word of mouth by asking friends or other cruisers while cruising, online research of agencies, BBB, etc. Hopefully, this Cruise Critic article (last updated August 31, 2021) will be helpful for you as well as anyone else reading this thread: Finding a Cruise Travel Agent Be sure to check out the How to Locate an Agent section.

  13. Howdy @Dee144 from a fellow Texan! Welcome back to the Cruise Critic message boards! I see it has been awhile since you have posted on the boards. Thank you for your new thread titled "Questions about passports & birth certificate." on the Ask a Cruise Question forum. 👍 It is the forum for general questions regarding cruising. To help you out since you are sailing on 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 Carnival 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. Please be sure to use the Follow feature on this thread. You won't have to go l👀king to see if there are new posts on this 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.

  14. Howdy @cheapocruiser Ann, thank you for your new thread titled Queen of the West - American Cruise Lines - 16 Apr 2022 - 23 Apr 2022 - Snake and Columbia Rivers - Spokane to Portland on the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum. 👍 However, your thread is off-topic on this forum since this forum is for technical assistance in using these message boards. To help you out I have moved your thread to the American Cruise Lines forum where it will be on topic. The majority of your fellow Cruise Critic members that have sailed or will be sailing a river cruise on Queen of the West 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 about river cruising that will be of interest to you. Also, I removed the date from your thread title. This is because with a date it appears this is a Roll Call thread and should be on the All Other River Cruise Roll Calls forum. If you want to start a Roll Call thread for your cruise on the All Other River Cruise Roll Calls forum, see How To: Create A New Roll Call and note the following: When you create a new ROLL CALL topic, you MUST include the sail date in the subject line, and here's the suggested format: Example: January 1, 2016 Please note the suggested date format with the month first and spelled out completely will ensure your new Roll Call topic appear in search results I also suggest you Follow this thread. That way you will not have to go l👀king to see if there are new posts because they will automatically 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. Many cruisers will benefit from your experience! See How To: Submit a Member Review. I hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  15. Howdy @Denise T and welcome to the Cruise Critic message boards! 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 Cruise Critic members help you. Wanted 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, 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. That is the spirit of our Roll Calls. To explain our Roll Calls 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 if one has not been started for your cruise. 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. And don't forget, after your cruise be sure to submit your review for publication. Many cruisers will benefit from your experience! See How To: Submit a Member Review. So sorry this is so long, but I sincerely hope this 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
