Default Class Reunion Cruises

Being that I'm the Reunion Chairperson, of course I insisted that we plan our 20th Reunion on a cruise. Woot! So far we've been very successful booking rooms (over 30 booked with a class that was only 115 grads) and we are still months away. Cruising end of June 2012.

At this point it's time to start planning the reunion portion of the cruise itself, and frankly I'm at a loss. When I cruise, I usually just get tipsy, lay around the pool and flirt with hotties. Probably won't work the rest of the group so I need to come up with some good ideas.

Has anyone ever planned or been a part of a Class Reunion Cruise? Can you offer any ideas (the more specific the better) or point me in a good direction? I'd love to correspond with someone personally for ideas.

Thanks!

I think that you got such an amazing turnout is a good thing, good for you! Is that 30 cabins or 30 people. Has your travel agent mentioned the free berth at 8 cabins? You can take the cost and plan some onboard goodies.

I have run my 3 class reunions ...you need to decide how many group things people will want to participate in, on this cruise. Isi t a 7 dayer, or less? What is the itinerary? Perhaps something might be planned in port.....give us some more info.

Ineresting idea. I am on the committee for a 55th. reunion .I will suggest this to other committee members .

Our 45th was on a one day cruise and 90% of the people preferred to sit in the dining room and talk but a 7 day cruise might be interesting .

Oddly enough, I've suggested that we have an informal cruise reunion for my little class of 55 or so members, and it's been received with mixed replies, but I feel that in the end, it'll work out well. I'm just going to pick out a ship, date, and T.A., and e-mail that information to all my classmates, and we'll see what happens. I'll be watching your thread with great interest!
