  1. @Jesse1789 Howdy! Thank you for your new thread on the Ask a Cruise Question forum that is for general questions about cruising. 👍 To help you out, I have moved your thread to the Ports of Call - Europe - Mediterranean - Eastern & Western - Italy Ports forum where it will be 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. I sincerely hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  2. @goldye I see you have already posted the information on your Roll Call thread 5 hours ago at 12:39 PM. I have sent a message to CC Help Jenn & CC Help Michell to help you with the feature on https://www.cruisecritic.com/rollcalls/norwegian-jade-april-19-2020/. Host Kat
  3. @suuva Thank you for your post in this old thread. However, share requests MUST be posted in the Roll Call thread for your cruise where you have posted before. Please repost where it belongs. Click here: May 1, 2020 Marina Icons of Iberia Note the following from What is a Roll Call? Everything you Need to Know : 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 I am locking this old thread started waaaay back in 2014 to prevent further postings.

  4. Because they can. After all, this is a site about cruising. If anyone does not want to see them, then just turn them off. Click their user name over the Search bubble, click Account Settings then Signature. Use the switch under View signatures? In the previous vBulletin software a member could turn off their signature on some of their posts in a thread. They would leave it there for their first post, but then choose not to display it in the other posts they made in that same thread. I did it that way myself and enjoyed the feature. But alas, it is not a feature in the current Invision software. Often a signature with a member's cruise history will help other members locate someone they have sailed with before. Also, some members "trust" more in information posted by someone with a long list. Me? I do it because after 74 years my "rememberer" is often broken and I need help. Host Kat
  5. Your post #277 on the Adventure May 21 2020 NJ, Bermuda & Caribbean 9 nights Roll Call thread: 3 hours ago, seaman77 said: I'm having a problem, when I go to post a reply on another thread, I go to the bottom and clip on submit reply, and it says ( saving) , but doesn't put the reply on the thread. what next On which thread are you trying to post? Is it possibly a locked tread? Also, perhaps something in this oldie but goodie thread will be helpful:
  6. @atljb2 You can ignore someone, not block. And if someone quotes a post by someone you are ignoring, you will still see the quote.
  7. @Simicourt1 Thank you for your repost. However it needs to be on the Roll Calls forum for your line, ship & sail date. Here are the directions from How To: Create A New Roll Call: You will need to be registered and logged in to create a new Roll Call. Register here if you have not yet done so. Click ROLL CALLS Click your Ship's (or Cruise Line's)name to open the correct forum (Don't see your ship name, see note at the end of instructions) Browse the topic titles shown in the forum to double check there is no existing Roll Call topic for your sail date. Click the Start New Topic button at the top of the Ship's roll call forum. In the Title Box, type the name of your ship, your sail date and year. 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 help your new Roll Call topic appear on the Roll Call Finder tool faster. Type a message in the message box and click the Submit Topic button. Some additional Roll Call Info: It can take anywhere from 24-48 hours for a new roll call to be added to the "Find your Roll Call" tool. If after that time you still do not see your roll call in the tool, but know that there is a thread, please email help@cruisecritic.com with the Ship and Sail date to have it corrected. Sometimes the tool will "mis-file" a sail date and it would need to be manually corrected to show up. If you see two or more threads for the same sail date please email help@cruisecritic.com to have them merged. We do request 1 roll call per sailing date. This can become a bit confusing when cruise lines sell sailings multiple ways. In those cases we prefer that each segment have it's own roll call, instead of roll calls that span over multiple segments. If there is not a forum for your ship you can post your roll call thread in either the ALL Other RIVER Roll Calls or the All Other CRUISE LINES (Ocean) Roll Calls Still have Questions? You can find Everything you Need to Know about Roll Calls
  8. Howdy! At this time I see you have code for the following two dead Cruise Critic Countdown Clocks in your signature. It makes no matter if they are still counting down or have expired. The Cruise Critic Countdown Clocks at https://www.cruisecritic.com/vbulletin/countdown.cfm no longer work in signatures. See my post #8 in the thread titled Editing My Signature on this forum. I have removed them from your signature for you so your signature is now empty of all code. This should help your situation. As I understand it, a member needs a compliant signature in order to change their signature since the switch from vBulletin to Invision software back in October 2018. I sincerely hope this will be helpful and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  9. Howdy @LMaeyaert and welcome to Cruise Critic! If you are using the Find Your Roll Call finder tool and have opened a page there for your cruise, click one of the places where it says View discussion or View More or View the Roll Call to open your Roll Call thread so you can read and post a reply with your info on the thread. For more information please read the following: How to: Reply to a Topic / Quote / Multi-Quote I sincerely hope this will be helpful to a new member and glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! Happy sails, Host Kat
  10. Howdy and welcome to Cruise Critic!! Thank you for your new thread on the Need Help Using the Forums? Check Here! forum. 👍 However, please note the following information is at the top of each page in the forum: Note: This area is intended only for questions and answers relating to technical assistance in using these message boards. Please do not post general cruise-related questions or Roll Calls here. The Roll Call thread for your line, ship and sail date is 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, your 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. 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. Since you do not mention your sail date, I cannot direct you to the specific Roll Call thread for your cruise. 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. Cruise Critic is a great resource for all cruisers, whether new or experienced, 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 on top of the first page of threads in a forum. You will find very important instructions or information there that will be helpful. You will find your fellow Cruise Critic members have 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, 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. And don't forget, after your cruise be sure to go to our Member Cruise Reviews section and submit your review for publication. Many cruisers will benefit from your experience, and you might win a prize from Cruise Critic! See the latest list of winners: Review Your Cruise and You Could Win -- These Members Did! (January 16, 2020) I sincerely hope this information will be helpful to a new member. 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
