ACL Forum on Cruisecritic.Com
 
A thread recently started on [url=http://WWW.Cruisecritic.Com]Cruise Reviews, Cruise Deals and Cruises - Cruise Critic[/url] 's American Cruise Line forum page in the "Boards" section points out that ACL has invested over $30,000.oo to lobby against the DELTA QUEEN. Some readers here might like to check out this posting and add their own comments. By doing so the message to "Save the DELTA QUEEN" might get out to a wider cruise oriented audience.

Can't find it
 
I clicked on your link which took me to the main Cruise Critic page. I clicked on ACL for the line and came up with all sorts of stuff, none of which showed that thread. Any way to get a more specific link?

Judy,

Here is a link to the thread Frank wrote about:


[url=http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=2416736]If So Good, Why $30,000. Paid to D.C. Lobbyists? - Cruise Critic Message Board Forums[/url]


The thread can also be accessed from the home page on cruisecritic.com by selecting "boards" at the top of the page and then clicking on the "American Cruise Lines" link under the subject heading "Cruise Lines 'A - O' ." From there, the ACL lobbying thread is currently at the top of the threads shown.

Found it!
 
Thanks for that link....a very nice posting. I'd say it was 'catty' though ;-)

*RE: 'Found it!/ACL ads on national TV*
Greetings, Steamboating colleagues:
Judy, I also had a fit getting the link to open earlier but in time, fiddling, open it did. Article appearing on 'Cruise Critic' interesting. MY! I didn't know Mark Twain was back writing editorials again! Interesting words. The September S&D annual meeting had among the attendees a veteran now working with ACL in the audience listening to various S&D reports and messages about the current DELTA QUEEN initiative. Nice reports from Mike Washenko and words and letter read by Jo Ann Schoen. to answer question of a .org 'lurker,' I purposely employ the saluation as full "Steamboating colleages" and not "Steamboatin'" as that under (C) Copyright.

I try to avoid watching too much day TV unless weather bad. Just stumbled, limped back from my haircut in town. While in the chair, my eyes bugged seeing on FOX--among others--one slick, expensive TV promo ad by ACL line with color work, narrator, image of modern-day Mark Twain, cabins, romantic red wheel rollin' sparklin' in the sun. Not a cheap ad for sure similar to cruise lines like CARNIVAL, ROYAL CARRIBEAN, VIKING RIVER/OCEAN CRUISES as it's that time of the season to advertise winter cruises, other cruises leading into year 2017. Who would have thought? Well, I only know what I read, see, hear.
