Dining can be together as a group or only for certain nights within a cruise. A group cruise can be set up in the way that works best for each group.
How does a Group Cruise Work?
While it varies by cruise line in general 8 cabins makes up a group, however, in some cases the number only 5 cabins maybe required to create a group. Once the number of cabins is determined we will hold the group space and then the group leader can promote the group, communicate the details such as pricing to the group, determine the dining and meeting space needs and get people excited to join the cruise.
Benefits of Booking a Group Cruise
There are many benefits of booking a group cruise. First is lower pricing and the rates are guaranteed for the categories that are held. Without booking into a group the rates are always subject to change. In addition, groups are offered extra amenities ranging from onboard credits, a complimentary bottle of wine or a cocktail party, specialty dining or other amenities.
Plus, the group leader can sail for FREE as a tour conductor credit will be issued back after the group sails. The amount of the tour conductor credit varies according to the cruise lines and the number and variety of cabins within the group. In general it is one berth (not cabin) for 16 full fare passengers traveling in the group. And, the more cabins that are sold the higher the number of tour conductor credits are earned!
Group activities can be varied according to the group needs. Dining can be set up together, special parties can be set up on board, meeting space complete with audio-visual equipment and group shore excursions can be offered.
