I do not care for the new look for the "Traveler Reviews".  We need to know the date of the trip that a particular reviewer is talking about.  Knowing the time of year that a particular post is about is important to me.  It used to be automatically included.  Secondly, if a person writes a review, then the spouses name should not be the one that appears on the review.  I see no way to change the fact that me (the wife) writes everything and not my husband as it is listed. 

Also, under the review there is a line that says "problem with this review".....well I accidently pressed on that and it automatically indicates that the problem is reported.  So I suppose my review of the Elbe River Cruise  may now completely disappear.  Usually when one presses something, a window would open and ask if you are sure you want to report this. 

Bottom line.....if only one thing is corrected on the Traveler Review would you at GCT please consider including the date of the trip that is being reviewed.

This has already been discussed at great length, and the consensus is that the new look is a disaster and that we want the date of travel back.  Plus, it's helpful to know where in the US posters live so that we can know how to take their opinions of the weather.

Hello Suekansas -

Thank you for taking the time post.

We have received a lot of feedback from our travelers about the new review platform, especially around the "date traveled".  This field will be restored by the end of the business day on September 4, 2013.

When we migrated the reviews to the new platform, some reviews did default to the first name in our file vs. the name of the person who wrote it.  We do have some options for those whose names were affected.  If you experienced this, please email me at & I can review the options with you.

Kind Regards,
