I agree age should be removed. A better measure of a persons 'Experience' would be the number of cruises they had taken. It would need to be entered into the profile and anyone who chose not to could have a "?" and be mysterious. Smile

I also agree the banners should be grouped in one place.

Finally how about a category on shipboard entertainment. Not just the shows but musicians in the forum, availabilty of dancefloors , types of music, etc

I have been looking around and reading different threads and I have not seen anything about cruising with special needs. More specific would be cruising with a service dog. Is there an area like that on this board?

Number of cruises wouldn't mean much...IMHO.
Some people climb on 2 , 3 or 5 day cruises every weekend.
I, on the otherhand...take 10, or 15 day cruises each time. Mostly, because I've got to fly a long way to climb onboard.

That being said...I'm not afraid of posting my age. The older I get, the smarter I get, the more happy I get. I'm certainly not afraid of that...I'm proud of that.

I agree how often you cruise is not a measure of how much you know about cruising. My friend has gone on cruises forever. She will tell me she is going on a cruise out of Calif. I ask which ship, she doesnt know, says they are all the same, who cares. Which port? she says my kids book the cruises with my credit card, I just go. She doesnt even get off in the ports any more, just goes on the cruise to play bridge all the time if she can and eat. Her husband left her well off, so she doesnt care what the cruises cost.

Great points! I ask some people which ship they sailed...and they can't even tell me. (let alone which cruise line) Some people (like me) are obsessed with the subject...and can tell you ships, sizes, sister ships, yadda-yadda.

I wish I were close enough to port to go more often, or wasn't a broke-ass Firefighter! (ok...I love being a Firefighter...just not a broke-ass one!) I feel blessed for the ones I've been able to take...and will take. Truly a gift in my eyes.

When my older sister was (hkienzle) graduating high school...she contemplated going on a Carnival cruise to celebrate. That was when I saw my first cruise brochure. I remember the ships being Festivale, Carnivale, and Mardi Gras. It looked like so much fun, and I dreamed of cruising for the next 20 years. We finally pulled off our first cruise in 1999 on Enchantment of the Seas. I thought I'd died...and gone to heaven. That feeling has never left me.

I think the people who would join this forum would know what ships and line they had been on. And therefore the number of cruises would be more meaningful than age.
What is IMHO by the way ? Oh .......is it ''In My Humble Opinion" ?
