CHOOSE A CRUISE
If you’ve cruised, you probably already know why cruising is a preferred option for groups. It’s an ideal way to bring a diverse group of people together in the fun and relaxed atmosphere of a cruise ship.
Group cruising is also the best value for the money because the price of your cruise can include all meals, snacks, plus 24-hour room service, entertainment, activities, accommodations, health and fitness club. Not to mention that a cruise ship visits many different ports offering adventure every new day.
If you haven’t cruised, we will explain the incredible variety of options that are available to ensure that you choose the right ship, the right itinerary and the right time of year to travel.
Our travel consultants are experienced in servicing groups ranging in size from an intimate party of ten to thousands of people. Plus, enjoy the highest standards of quality and personal service; negotiated lowest possible group rates; and extra privileges and benefits, which may include FREE amenities such as category upgrades, cocktail parties, group photos, and champagne.
Let us do all the work, so you can relax and enjoy the experience!
GROUP LEADER FREE* CRUISE PROGRAM
Are You Aware That You Can Get A Free* Cruise Berth/Cabin?
You can earn a free* cruise by becoming a group leader! Just read the information below to get find out how!
Who Is A Group Leader?
A group leader is the person who encourages a group of their friends, family or co-workers to take a cruise vacation together on the same ship. The group leader can cruise for free* or at a greatly reduced rate.
How Does The Group Leader Cruise For Free*?
The cruise line will award a free* tour conductor berth (bed) for every so many staterooms your group books. The typical group will need to book a minimum of eight staterooms to earn the free* bed. There’s usually no restriction on the number of free* beds you can earn, so as long as you keep booking staterooms, your group can keep earning free* beds.
What Is A Tour Conductor?
The Tour Conductor is the person setting up and escorting the group. To compensate you for bringing the group together, we will award you the free* Tour Conductor berth. You will pay for the stateroom up front, and the cost of the berth is refunded to you after the sailing is finalized. You may keep this yourself, or divide it equally among your group. It is your decision.
Who Pays The Fees And Taxes?
You will pay the applicable fees and taxes for your stateroom. Your Tour Conductor credit does not cover fees and taxes. Only the 1st two people in the stateroom count towards your free* berths.
How Many Free Berths Can The Group Earn?
- 8 staterooms traveling = 1 free* berth (bed)
- 16 staterooms traveling = 2 free* berths (1 free stateroom)
- 24 staterooms traveling = 3 free* berths (beds)
- 32 staterooms traveling = 4 free* berths (2 free staterooms)
- 100 staterooms traveling = 12 free* berths (6 free staterooms)
What Kind Of Stateroom Will I Have?
You will book your stateroom in the category you desire. The free* Tour Conductor berth is based on the most staterooms sold in any one category. If you sell the most staterooms in a balcony category, your refund will be based on the cost of the stateroom in that category.
When Is The Best Time To Cruise With A Group?
Cruising is a great vacation any time of the year, but the best group rates are offered in May, June, September, October, early November, and early December. And remember that booking early is the key to better rates and availability!
