Groups of all types find that cruise ships are the easiest and most enjoyable way to travel together. Onboard a modern megaship, your group can dine together in a gourmet restaurant, meet in a quiet conference room, gather by the pool for sun and fun, or experience a Broadway show. Participants who want a break from the action can retreat to the spa, find privacy on a secluded balcony, or enjoy a book in a comfortable alcove as their kids are entertained by trained youth counselors.
What is a Group Cruise?
Cruise lines usually define a group as having a minimum of 8 double occupancy cabins.
Benefits of Booking as a Group
Groups often get the best overall value--if you plan well in advance--particularly when you factor in special group amenities like complimentary wine or champagne, chocolates, cocktail parties, shipboard credits, casino credits, spa services, and private gatherings. Plus, by booking early you get to choose the location of your group's cabins. To take advantage of group benefits, you must book the entire group through our Group Department.
On a typical cruise your group will get:
- Stateroom accommodation
- Transportation to interesting ports
- Gourmet dining
- Vegas- or Broadway-style shows
- Discos, clubs, bars
- Pool, water sports
- Fitness center, exercise classes, spa
- Youth programs
- Movies (theater and in-room)
The Planning Process
All successful groups have a group leader. The group leader is responsible for promoting the group to friends and family or co-workers and employees, but our group specialists assist with all the work thereafter, such as communicating booking details, processing payments, gathering documentation, booking meeting space, and coordinating dining requests.
With Vacations To Go, your dedicated group specialist will be the single point of contact for all participants on the cruise for everything throughout the planning and booking process.
Our Technology Makes It Easy!
Your Vacations To Go group specialist will create a personalized Web page for your group where participants can get answers to questions about the cruise, sign up, and even pay online, saving you time and energy. We'll also provide online reports so you can track registration information by guests like the number and category of cabins booked, the amount and type of payment made, and much, much more!
