Default Getting a free cabin for large groups??

Okay - once upon a time I'd read somewhere that if you book a large enough group on a cruise, that you line will reward you with a free cabin, kind of like paying a finders fee. I don't know if that is true or not. I was wondering if it is, and if so, where I can find out about the policies of individual lines?

Thanks!

Bill

Hi Bill,
You would need to contact a travel agent and see how that works, yes, if you book a large enough group, you can get a free cabin. Each cruiseline is a little different, but a good travel agent will be able to help you when booking a group, just make sure you get all the details in writing and that the initial booking is for a group.

Usually you need to get at least 8 cabins sold for this to happen. Some cruise lines need more. Then, usually, you get the cabin cat. of the most cabins sold. You can pay for an upgrade.

The typical is for every 8 cabins-16 passengers you get one free passenger fare, not one free cabin. To get one free cabin you would need to sell 16 cabins-32 passengers.

Its the actual fare that you get free...you still pay the tax and port charges. And as cruisequeen said, you get the cabin cat. of the most cabins sold.

That, I believe is the "typical" compensation. I have a group going on RCCL in Feb and thats the rate I am getting.
