How To Start A Roll Call On CRUISIN


Staff member
This is for those of you unfamiliar with what a Roll Call is or maybe just unfamiliar with how to start one here on CRUISIN.

A Roll Call is a way for cruisers going on the same cruise to interact and/or make plans with each other before actually going on the cruise.

You can have your Roll Call started up in about 1 minutes so what are you waiting for, get it started!
...it will take you longer to read through this post than it will to actually start your Roll Call.

Go ahead and Start A Thread - (a chat room) in the forums for your Roll Call. This will allow you and other CRUISIN members going on the same cruise get to know each other prior to the cruise in one central location - the Roll Call thread.

How To Start A Thread:
  • First see if a thread already exists for your cruise. Do can do this by either searching the Roll Call Forums for your specific cruise, or you can manually look for the Roll Call thread. We recommend manually looking because sometimes members may misspell and then the search may not find it. To manually look go first to the Roll Calls Forum. Then find your cruise line in the list, select it, then find your cruise ship in the list, select it. Now you will see all of the active Roll Calls for your cruise ship. See if a Roll Call thread exists for your specific embarkation date. If a Roll Call thread already exists for your cruise ship/embarkation date combination then you're all set, go ahead and join in on the conversation. If a Roll Call thread does not exist, select the "Post thread" button and start one (this is assuming you are within the forum related to your specific cruise ship, see how to manually get there above). Use a thread title that is informative. Example "Carnival Breeze - June 24, 2012 - Miami, FL". This way someone can easily see exactly what Roll Call it is by just looking at the list of thread titles. Adding your embarkation port as in this example above is also a good idea. This will help those searching for say a cruise out of Miami in June 2013 to come across your Roll Call while they are trying to find a cruise to go on. In the actual text section of the post you can add anything you want, if you're not in the chatting mood yet, just add a quick note and click the "Submit New Thread" button.
