Group Booking Q & A
Common questions regarding Group Cruise Vacations
How many guests are required to make a group?
Based on double occupancy, as few as eight (8) staterooms, or 16 travelers, can qualify you as a group. Typically, the larger your group is, the greater the savings or added value you can obtain. Please note that third or fourth passengers sharing the same stateroom do not count toward the size of your group.

Our CruiseExperts Travel Specialists can negotiate extra cruise fare savings, added amenities such as stateroom upgrades, complimentary bottles of wine or shipboard credit, and even free staterooms. Every group cruise package is tailored to each group's unique needs.
