Forum Guidelines
This section is regarding our forums, named CruisEvolution Message Boards. Please be aware that advertising is not allowed on these message boards (other than ads placed by us). Tour operators, travel agents, guides, drivers, etc. are more than welcome to share general information with other members of this community; however, they are strictly prohibited from trying to solicit business or advertise their business in any way, shape or form (including any attempts to provide customer service to their customers). This includes, but is not limited to: website links, phone numbers, logos and pricing.

Third-party recommendations are permitted as long as there was initially a request for such information, and as long as the member providing the information has not recommended the same company over and over - such recommendations will be deemed as spamming the boards, and such posts will be removed at the sole discretion of CruisEvolution.

Please be aware that all information, advice and opinions given by the CruisEvolution staff (and our forum's members) should not be taken as fact by our forum's readers. Our staff does their best to provide our members with the best and most accurate information possible; however, human error and inaccuracies are possible. As such, all information provided by our staff should be verified by each member on their own. CruisEvolution LLC will not be held liable for any misfortunes that result from a reader of this forum following our staff's advice/information.

If you are reading a post on these forums and believe that the information provided by our staff (or another member) is inaccurate please politely reply to that particular post, within that same thread, with what you believe to be the correct information.

Each member of our forum is able to post pictures in our "Pictures & Albums" section. The purpose of that section of the forum is to share pictures of your travels and cruising experiences. These pictures cannot contain any nudity, profanity or any improper images (which is at the discretion of our staff to decide). Should prohibited photos/images be uploaded on our server by any user, that user will be banned from our forum.

There is a teens forum in our message boards that has been designed for teenagers to chat with other teenagers about cruising. Examples of appropriate topics of conversation in this forum include: likes and dislikes about certain cruise lines and cruise ships, favorite ports of call, favorite activities to participate in while onboard or ashore. As with the rest of our forums, explicit language is not permitted in these forums. Please be aware that this portion of our message boards is only for teenagers to use. Users that post messages on this portion of our boards that are not teenagers will have their posting privileges removed and/or will be banned from this community without prior warning. Such decisions will be made at the sole discretion of CruisEvolution's community moderators. The use of our forums is solely at your own risk, as we are not able to ensure that all users posting as teenagers really are teenagers. Please use the proper caution when conversing with people on these forums. For example: do not give anyone your real name and do not agree to meet in person with anyone from the forums. Site users under the age of 13 are strictly prohibited from joining our message boards.

Once a member has more than one violation of these conditions they may have their posting rights removed, without notice.
