Rec.travel.cruises is a forum whose purpose is to provide information
and support to cruise ship travellers. Discussion might include (but not
be limited to) the relative merits of the various cruise ships and
lines, ports of embarkation, ports of call, shore excursions, cruise
ship activities, cuisine, entertainment, cruise ship personnel, cruise
ship management and the future of cruise ship travel. Discussions
related to getting the best deals on cruises will be highly welcome.
Such discussions might include early vs. late bookings, money back
guarantees, cruise protection insurance, the use of general vs. cruise
specific travel agencies and strategies for booking your own cruises.
Any topic that relates to cruise ship travel and the cruise industry
itself could be subject for discussion. In addition, discussion will be
allowed on the history of cruise ship and ocean liner travel.

Rec.travel.cruises will:

1. Help the traveller make an informed decision in how to book a
cruise without the pressure of a travel agent (travel agents are welcome
to the group and are encouraged to participate in the discussion
provided that there shall be no overt solicitation of business within

2. Provide the new cruiser with the benefit of the experience of
veteran cruises.

3. Provide the new cruiser with information as to what to expect once
he or she actually arrives on the ship ready to sail. Such topics as
cruise ship dress codes, dining room traditions, shopping, booking shore
excursions and tipping are all topics that the first time cruiser needs
to be familiar with.

An FTP site will be maintained for related rec.travel.cruises files.
These files will include a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's).
Members of the newsgroup who go on cruises will be asked to write
reviews of their experiences. These cruise reviews will be stored at the
FTP site and will serve as a very valuable resource to anyone looking
into sailing on the same ship or itinerary. In addition, a comprehensive
listing of all cruise ships and lines will be maintained as part of the

In summary, rec.travel.cruises encourages the free and open discussion
on all aspects of cruise ship travel. Justifiable criticism of specific
cruise ships and lines will be welcome up to the point of becoming
personal vendettas against a specific ship or line. Users are strongly
urged to keep messages of a confrontational or argumentative nature to a
minimum. Finally, it is requested that articles posted to
rec.travel.cruises not be crossposted to rec.travel or the other travel

a housecoat.
2) In Utah, birds have the right of way on any public highway.
