Revised Cruise Critic Guideline for reviews/recommendations of tour operators etc.

Recommended Posts

Cruise Critic has revised the Guidelines for reviews/recommendations of tour operators/guides/businesses etc in ports of call. The new wording is:



We welcome the legitimate review or recommendation of tour operators, guides, property & business owners in ports of call.


Cruise Critic considers requests to be E-mailed for additional information as soliciting and will delete those postings by anyone trying to sell or promote themselves on Cruise Critic. Please, abide by our Community Guidelines so that legitimate recommendations by our members regarding guides and tour operators may remain on the forums!


From time to time, Cruise Critic management is contacted by Tour Operators/Guides/Business who request removal of negative posts about their company. You should know that Cruise Critic will
remove negative posts from the boards at the request of any tour company, cruise line, store, shop, taxi company, driver, guide, etc.


One-Post Wonders

This phenomenon essentially amounts to single or multiple posts created by a brand-new member which tout tour operators/businesses in ports of call. Posts of this nature will be removed from the boards without notification to the author. Cruise Critic considers these types of postings an attempt to circumvent our rules and may result in that company's name being censored from our forums without notice.


Cruise Critic reserves the right to remove any material from our message boards without notification to members, the author or the company being recommended.



Specifically, the change removes the requirement that recommendations for tour operators/guides etc. be in response to a specific request. In other words, someone can come to a port of call forum [e.g. River Cruise Ports] and begin a new thread with their review. This will also apply to threads on the main River Cruising forum. Note that this change is designed to give legitimate members ease in posting and ease in finding reviews – it is still a violation of the Guidelines for tour operators/guides etc. to tout their business or solicit customers.
