I wouldn't worry about it Henry, I've been posting for a year about my cruise coming up in less than 4 weeks, and still nobody's answered. I guess we're alone on the ship....

Henry, I don't think that people even look at those threads. I have posted there and no one has ever responded

It's not very strange at all.
The meet on board on CM's has never been very active since I have been here.
I posted a MOB (Celebrity) about 4 or 5 days ago and have no replies but about 15 views.
On the other board the MOB thread for my cruise has 3200 plus posts.

No activity for my cruises as well. On another board both cruises have a lot of posts. I have tried a couple of times before and there was never any activity and didn't meet anyone from here on the other cruises. However, I have had several meets from the other board. The only time there was a meet was when it was a cruisemate cruise. Too bad.

How do you think I feel? My cruise leaves in less than a week and I haven't heard from anyone either. I am going on NCL's Pearl on October 24. Here I am, attractive SF, saling alone, and I haven't heard from anyone who's going to be on the same cruise. I so wanted to at least have a few people to look for! I read somewhere that Cruisecritic.com is more friendly???
If anyone sees this that will be departing Miami on the Pearl, please write back!

So true, I wish there was more activity on the MOB threads.

The very active MOB's are usually people (most Cruisemate members) on a group cruise. The Splendor cruise I participated in had 60 pages in their thread. The February Carnival Glory cruise will beat it I think.

IMO, it's because no body takes care of cleaning up the MOB board! If you look at it, there are cruises still listed that sailed over a year ago! That makes it VERY difficult to sort out your cruise,,,or at least it would be if the board was active at all. When I was working, I volunteered to manage that board,,,FOR FREE but got no answer, or reaction from the CruiseMates folks. Well, I'm retired now, and don't have time to fool around with it. Like the rest of you, I go to "the other site" for my MOB needs.

I've always thought it very strange, too. I post and maybe one person answers and then disappears. We're cruising in a year and on the other site there are more posts on that Roll Call than on ALL the Roll Call's here. I DO wonder why that is, as the most friendly people post here?

Long ago the Roll Call's were posted on each cruise line board. Maybe that should happen again?

JMHO,

Not scary at all. I would love to meet you.

We met readytogonow ( Darlene ) and her husband on the Oasis in april and I was certainly happy about that. They are a very nice couple.
