TTAM: look @ recent threads in here, someone posted an email address to see what large groups were on what ships and what days. Happy cruising!

This will only show groups who have booked excursions with shoretrips. There are many other groups, large and small on every ship and there's really no way to find out who they are until you board (if even then) unless someone offers that information.

You can try googling your ship and sailing date and may find some groups.

Try this website:

http://www.unofficialcarnivalwiki.co.../Group_Cruises

It lists a lot of the larger groups.

Also do a search on this forum board to see what has already been said.

Most groups are benign and only book the various lounges when they are not likely to be used by the general public.

However, there are a few groups who have left a trail of vacation misery for people forced to share a cruise ship with them.

There is tons of info re: this subject. You just have to do a little work and you will find out all you need to know.

Good luck.

Here is one:

http://www.maryjonesministries.org/serv04.htm

Looks pretty safe....

Lots of ships fill up so I would not worry about that. It does not mean it is a "group".

I did not see any groups that have caused trouble in the past listed on your cruise....

So have a wonderful time!!!

I think for the most part, you may not even know the smaller groups are onboard. It's when really large groups book, sometimes,and I stress sometimes, it can change the dynamics, and maybe at times, rooms might be made private..

On our HAL trip in 2001 there was a church group of 600 ppl. They had their own agenda and functions so there was plenty of seating in the shows and lounges.
