You know, many years ago when I came upon this site, I too thought it seemed kind of like a "clique".......that is, until I introduced myself and jumped on board to share my adventures and wealth (not) of wisdom about cruises. I had lurked on other sites and was appalled at how nasty they could be to each other. I was afraid to get hit over the head because the questions I had....had JUST BEEN ASKED THE WEEK BEFORE. oops, sorry.....didn't mean to bother anyone......gulp....then I found Cruise-Addicts and hardly anyone has "yelled" at me since.......well except for Maxine. Lighten up a bit....pull up a chair...sit back and enjoy your stay with us. You might even get to like us....just the way we are. If you can't find all the info here......go find it on the "other" board....then come back here and tell us about yourself and make some awesome friends. We're meeting up with Katcruiser(from this board) here in Wisconsin tomorrow and Thursday while she's on business. Why????? Because we met her and her husband on a cruise once and enjoyed their company...and guess what we'll be surely talking about???? Yup, our upcoming cruise that a bunch of us from here will be on in February. That's what it's all about.
