Traffic is next to nothing nowadays and so even when someone does post
something they get few to no answers. Without useful replies, there is
no reason for this group to continue.

Unless some number of folks object, I'd like to have this group
removed, meaning it will no longer exist.

I'm afraid I have to agree with you, although I will mourn its demise.
Where is everyone going now to find out about all-inclusive holidays?

I was just going to reply to the guy that was asking about adult only AI's
in the Cancun area. Secrets Capri just got a rave review from my BIL and his
wife. But you are right. No one post here anymore.

probably a better solution would be to change it from moderated to
unmoderated.

one reason I'm sure there are so few posts/replies is that it can take
days from when a post is sent to when it appears... and replies can take
days too.

Turns out that is quite difficult to do, the powers that be won't
really discuss it because of the difficulty.

Also, this group would become just another travel spam haven like the
other rec.travel groups.

A lot of that is my fault as I am the only moderator and my current
job keeps me from moderating except in the evenings and weekends.

Hi David,

Rec.travel.cruises is doing quite well as an unmoderated group. Sure,
there is some spam and BS but it has had good info with lots of give
and take since 1994. The reason this group does so poorly is the
moderation and the associated rules. I do not mean this as a
derogatory remark regarding what you have done. I thank you for your
service. It was the earlier moderators that caused this group to sink
before you showed up.

Best regards,
Ray

my favorite all inclusive destination
 
Hi,

while I must say I like Silver-Sands and I'd go back it's not all
inclusive... it's rental villas (including staff) and you pay for food
etc and excursions and stuff...

for AI I'd go back to Couples Negril in a heartbeat.

I tried Couples Ocho Rios but it's to multi-level and I don't like the
higgler level in town.

The only other place that has me paying attention is Sandals Negril...
I've never stayed there but I've got a bud that swears by the sandals
properties and it IS in the middle of the 7 mile beach and as such
should have better sailing.

I have to agree with you. Unfortunate tho. We love all-inclusives and wish
this site would get more beneficial posts.
