Comments from the 2007 cruise :

DX Comments:

"My first time on the CCF cruise, and I really enjoyed it! Presentations were great with a wide spectrum of interesting topics. Everything together with the opportunity to meet your friends (and making new friends) is great. I will certainly join if there's a cruise in 2008!"
"S&%#TANA, it was very good!"
"There was a good balance between presentations and time for eyeball qsos."
"Cruise concept is excellent & good value."
"Presentations by experience + number of participants = lots of interaction"
"Keep it mixed - DX/Contest topics and tecnical topics, too."
"Keep on with your good work!!!"

OH Comments:

"Kyllä on vaikeata enää parantaa pojat! Niin hiton mielenkiintoisia esityksiä. Harmi niille, joita kiinnostaa, mutta eivät olleet paikalla.."
"Ulkolaisten suhteellinen osuus ilahdutti. Siksi tulen toistekin."
"Hyvät mielenkiintoiset esitykset olivat ++++++++++++++++"
"Hei! Ensikertalaiselle tapahtuma oli varsin antoisa! Teki hyvää kuunnella "oikeita" amatöörejä, jotka oikeasti välittävät workkimisesta, ja todeta harrastuksemme olevan edelleen oikeilla raiteillaan. Sain myös mielestäni varsin hyvän kuvan tämän päivän kilpailutoiminnasta - mitä kaikkea se pitääkään sisällään :) Kiitos onnistuneesta ja hauskasta risteilystä!"
"Olitte tehneet hienoa työtä risteilyn onnistumiseksi. Kiitos vielä kerran."
"Kiitoksia järjestäjille. Oli tosi hyvä reissu."
