Default Re: Which cruise for a wedding?

After you have read Donna's messages, contact several cruise only or travel agents who have considerable "group" cruise experience. This would be my first questions; "How many group cruises have you booked last year?" There is a lot of work organizing a group cruise and many details for your wedding to follow through with. You want to be very comfortable with an agent. Major Travel Agencies to call: American Express, Carlson Wagonlit, Galaxsea Cruises, CruisesInc., MyTravelco, CruisesOnly, etc. Narrow you choice down to 2 or 3 agents then let them give you group quotes for the same ship and dates. Watch for their comparitive pricing, how much additional information they provide for you, will they consider cruising with you to make sure everything goes smoothly. Twenty five people equals approximately 13 cabins; for every 8 cabins, you should be able to get one berth free or have this amount pro-rated and subtracted from the total price. Example, if 16 cabins (32 people) are booked, one cabin would be free possibly for the Bride & Groom. This is of a general rule and can vary by cruise line. The new Princess mega-ships have a wedding coordinator and chapel on board. RCI ships are great for the whole family. Best of Luck
Bon Voyage
