You're doing an amazing job, John!

Hi Everyone, So glad to have you here. If you haven't visited in awhile welcome back! Our history goes back to July of 1999. We started a small forum and have grown and evolved over the years. Please join me in this celebration by checking into this Celebration Roll-Call thread like the old days.

Example: My name is John checking-in from Florida! I've been a member since 1999 and I'm a Cruise Addict!

I can't wait to see the replies! :hot:

Good morning all and a happy 20th anniversary to C@!! Thank you John and all the others who have helped you over the years to make C@ successful. I can't remember when we joined but I know it has been at least 15 years ago or at least the early 2000's. We have only met one of the members over the years,(cruizer, i think his real name is Zeff, and he always posted alot of cool photos.).From reading all of the posts and trip reports over the years it was almost as though we knew the members and we were right there with them. By reading C@ it has given us our cruise "fix" when we weren't cruising. We have been here for the fun and sad times. We've been on two cruises in the last four years. Freedom OTS, and Harmony OTS so we are still able to enjoy it despite some health issues. I still have my "Cruise Addicts" hat and we still use our C@ luggage tags that were available some time ago in the C@ store. John, we wish you continued success with C@ and to all the members good health and happiness in the future.

Wow..amazing! I remembered my password so I could log in and post..lol..
Haven't been back for a while but have poked my nose in from time to time over the decades. I think I joined in 2000 when I was looking for info on sailing as a family. Made and met some friends here that I'm still in touch with so a very hearty thanks and congratulations, John, for having a successful website for 20 years! I'll be looking for familiar names.
What's new..?

Amazing bunch of folks we have/had.....and wish they would drop by more often. Only takes a moment to liven things up. I se my moosie thinks Ive been around since 04. but if the truth be know I stumble across to here in the first yr near the start. Never completely believe what you read on the internet. Unless its some of the good advice that has been around here since the start.

Congrats John...... now how do we win that "Free Cruise" you have been promising us if we up our post counts.?? :lol04: :grinnyangel::smiley20:

I THINK I have been on this site for at least 18 years, maybe even 20 but I became addicted to Cruise Addicts so I am still here. I love playing the silly little games that keep me coming in. We used to cruise a lot but my husband's health, doctor bills and cost of cruising has caused us to be land lovers even when we would rather be cruising. Sooooo, I get my fix by coming here and pretending I am on a big ship and meeting and being with interesting cruisers. Keep this going so I can get my fix!!!!! BTW, I am from the middle of the country --- Kansas (which is not all flat and has very friendly people) And we have moved 18 times in our lives and who would have thought that Kansas will be our resting place eventually!

Congrats on the 20 years of info I have received from your site and have been a member almost the entire time. I always tell people that cruising is a learning experience! To this day, after 13 cruises (with my 14th booked for Oct. 2020) I am STILL learning with the development of the newer ships but your site gives me the insight on those ships BEFORE I board. Just thought I'd share a memory (attached below) of a T-Shirt I bought MANY years ago (sorry it's a bit wrinkled but I only take it out for my cruises)...

Hi, BSeaBob!
Where did we leave off!? Jer graduated in the year after he signed as a free agent for one season as a rookie with Milwaukee Brewers. He’s a pitching coach at UBC of a bantam team and coach of the Junior Varsity team now. We get out there once a year. I’m still working and Bob is in his last month of work. How about you?

If you are out this way someone owes somebody coffee at the Ihop. lol... sounds like the Wet coast has got Jer. Is he saying let the east freeze in the dark yet?

Haha...no. As long as he has friends iand family here, he will feel a tug. Going to pick him up at the airport in an hour for an end of summer visit before fall ball starts which will be all too soon.
I’m sure we’ll be out next year so you may get that coffee yet and point us in another direction to discover more of B.C.

I have only been around here since 2010.
Have made a lot of friends during my time here, and cruised with some of you during one C@ group cruise (the last one Red and Einstein hosted).
I have also met some of you in my corner of the world while you are here cruising the Baltic Sea and some in the US when I'm over there for vacation. Good times!
Trying to be as active as possible, but time seems to be limited.
It's a long time since I posted some kind of cruise review, have to try to put some photos together from the Mardi Gras/Caribbean cruise I did earlier this year.
