Hi all.... Adirondack Pete and I are still on our Princess Hawaii cruise, which started when all of this broke out on April 1st, so I have just been checking in here and there.

My first theory on why Tina would promote all of these contests was that it was a psychological experiment on greed. Now after reading the RC email I am even more confused. It does make sense thinking back now that none of her alter-ego members won or even competed for cruises in the contests.

Anyway, the lost free cruises might be moot for us anyway as Peter's jail is closing July 1, so the time off he took for them is in jeopardy when gets transferred to another facility.

I don't know if Tina is really sick or not, but either way as a cancer survivor I find her wearing it on her sleeve a bit distasteful. I never sought sympathy or pity from others and don't believe the disease should be marketed in this way.

When we are back on land we'll be sure to visit the recommended sites and catch up with our friends.

Ginny and Peter
Hi Ginny, I hope you and your husband Peter are enjoying your Princess Hawaii cruise.Well since Tina's contest turned out to be bogus I won't be meeting your and your husband aboard the QM2 next Christmas but at least I am going aboard the QM2 on June 19,2009 for a back2back transatlantic crossing.And I paid for it so I know I am going for sure.All The Best. Regards,Jerry

Jerry, I too am disappointed we won't be meeting in December. We are
keeping the Grand British Isles voyage which was booked before winning
any contests, since October is an easy time for Peter to take off. I
also have booked us a WC segment on QV from NY to SF in January which
sails the Panama Canal.

Hopefully we will some day be on the same voyage.
Ginny, You and your husband will enjoy sailing through the Panama Canal.I did it in January 2006 aboard the QE2 from NY to LA.Then I spent a night aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach before taking the train home to New Jersey.Regards,Jerry

Hi Jerry
I am from the UK. Emigrated to Canada in 1977. If I do a transatlantic I will couple it with a visit to famlily etc and maybe see parts of England I didn't see while growing up there. My Father lived all his life within 40 miles of where he was born.

Don't you find CLF less 'cosy' than we were here ?

Tony[/quote]Tony, I agree with you.On the CLF board I put up some posts critical of and making fun of Tina Rinaldi.And then the CLF moderator e-mailed me saying that she,the CLF moderator had those posts critical of and making fun of Tina deleted because I was too hard on poor Tina.Oh Please.

Their true colors always come out. The place is TOO over moderated, under a stricter rule than the most popular site, and to be honest, have more non cruise related posts than cruise related.

You are best looking elsewhere.

Ginny, if you see this while you're still on your cruise, I'm wondering if you can see if the Future Cruises desk will tell you which ship is sailing to Hawaii in the 2010-11 season. The info still hasn't been released on the Princess website, but maybe they'll talk about it onboard.

Thanks!

I was at the Future desk today.... they have not yet released which
ship will be in Hawaii for the 2010-2011 season but the Golden will be
doing 2009-2010. The only 2010 itineraries they have released so far
is Europe.

If I get some time on Wednesday in the Jet Blue terminal at JFK where
they have free wifi I will check in at the new sites. Till then, aloha!

Sorry to be so tardy in reply...I was off-site and unable to access a computer for the past week. Embarassed
Yes, I'm going onthe QM2 to boston 7/1-5 [I did book last June 08], but now I'm paying for my own hotel room pre-cruise [damn+blast!]. I had already paid Nina. Nina didn't lose my room, when the "brown-wind" blew. What a Face
I'm also going on the inaugural of the QE-new Oct 2010. juggling
I haven't had the chance to get back, yet, to the new cruise site...but agree it ain't nearly as whacky as we ghosts still are!! Drinks

There are some wacky people over there, and they are a friendly bunch, but it feels like you are talking in Grand Central Station rather than a neighborhood bar. scratch

The fun thing about this site is that there is no one moderating this board so we can say funny things to former board owner and B.S. Artist Tina Rinaldi.I suggested to Tina that since she loves to pose as bogus message board members such as Nick Needs To Know,Leanna who is Nick's wife,Patrick aka Paddy Goes Cruising just to name a few of the many of Tina's fictional message board members,I suggested that she Tina pose as a nudist and run naked around Times Square HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Regards,Jerry I know that the joke may be getting a little stale but Tina deserves it anyway HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HappyHappyJoyJoy

Since we don't need the B.S. Artist and Nudist Tina Rinaldi,Why don't us ghosts BeamMeUp run this board ourselves and we can post messages about our favorite ships and the voyages or cruises we took aboard these ships. Regards,Jerry

Problem is, if and when it goes down the tubes or is disabled, you lose what was posted.

Unless you find someone to start one up if this is not transfered.

I've belonged to 2 defunct cruise websites that imploded, and I hate what was lost.

Here is another way to make fun of that fake phony fraud Tina Rinaldi.Just watch this "Cruise Ship Video" and think of the cat character as being the B.S.Artist Tina Rinaldi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNbQ1X8MjeI lol! Regards,Jerry

The people that "outted" Tina have started a new board called Cruising Nation. Why don't you all go over there and check it out? As a new baord, they need all the new contibuting members they can get.
