I've seen several posts regarding people trying to put together a family or group cruise. What is the incentive for going this route? Are the cruises cheaper? Does the coordintor get a free cruise? Sorry to sound like such a newbie. How many people do you need for a group deal? Thanks.
A travel agent can help you on this...........it probably varies among the cruise lines. In my case, my TA secured us a group rate on Carnival (the rate was about $130 less than the going rate, per person) and, if we ended up with 8 cabins, we would get 1 berth (not cabin) free, which we decided we would split up among everyone going. Well, we ended up with only 6 cabins, so no free berth. In addition to the discounted fare, each cabin received $75 shipboard credit, $15 photo voucher, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries.
