Hi there Nurse,
Sorry to say, I really tried to find something to do a group cruise to Alaska this summer, but it just didn't happen...Although I ended up booking myself, there is always the chance of one next summer..
Debby, we just got back from Alaska and we are planning on going more north in 2010. We took the southbound trip from Seattle. It was wonderful. If you get a groupcruise in 2010, we would be interested.
Most travel agents have some cruised that they get book groups on. You'll get some savings by booking with a group, usually some extra perks, cocktail party, or cruise credit. When so many cabins are booked, depending on the cruiseline, you may get an additional "free" cabin that you can share the savings with or someone gets...I've booked cruises with other groups even not knowing any of the group.
We usually have a few Cruisemates group cruises going, you can check those out and compare prices, usually a good deal and you get to cruise with some special Cruisemates :-)
I am not sure of the Cruisemates rules on somethings, but here goes. I'm a new agent from WV and Ohio. I am doing a group cruise Aug 5 2009 Northbound on the Spirit. But that is all I'll say incase this is a Cruisemates no,no.
Hi Booe's mom,
Other than actual CM group cruises, we can't allow agents advertizing their cruises, unless they care to buy some ad space here, feel free to do that. You can just imagine what these boards would be like if everyone was posting agents names, etc.
