Default Caribbean Princess review on Cruise Critic

Don't know if anyone else has noticed but the review by sonjasue1 has been
changed. The previously discussed offensive reference has been changed to
chew down.

I think it now says "bartered down"--which thankfully, prevents the
sound alike reference to the offensive term.

No, "chew" is still there.

In one paragraph it says "barter", in the next it says "chew."

Why the editor didn't just change it to "barter" to be consistent is a
mystery.

Surprises usually happen in dark, tight "quarters".

I wrote back to Cruise Critic about the change they made not being
enough. Laura wrote back that she thought the change to "chew" was
sufficient. Unfortunatly that shows ignorance on her part as to what
was wrong to begin with. All I can say is the result reflects badly on
Cruise Critic.

I wrote directly to the editor. She replied back this morning that
she'd pass along my concerns. No change.

Have you tried complaining on their board, or would they delete
anti-CC comments?

You might point them at this site (if they care):
