Default New CruiseMates Celebrity Group Cruise coming soon!!

We're just in the process of finalizing a new CruiseMates Group Cruise on board Celebrity's Constellation for its Transatlantic sailing April 26. 14 days.

San Juan- St Thomas, St Maarten, atlantic crossing, Funchal, Lisbon, Le Havre(Paris), Harwich (England).

A wonderful itinerary with a couple of days in the Caribb before the crossing, with just SUPERB pricing!!!!

If you've got 14 day to spare this spring <G> stay tuned for details SOON!

Regards,
Kuki

Will you do it in Canadian dollars? What about air?

Baby.. I'm sure we could get pricing done in Canadian dollars as well, since the Celebrity web site will quote in either Canadian or US dollars.
As for air, Celebrity is currently offering some special air packages on this sailing. Air add ons will be available.
Normally I book my own air, but for open jaw tickets (returning from a different city than you fly to) I've found the cruise line air option to be the best.

Regards,
Kuki

Kuki, just out of curiosity. How many Cruismates group cruises have you done? Where? What lines? What goes into the choice, other than the best price, of ship and itinerary? Who chooses?

Thanks.

Benjamin..
including the CruiseMates group cruises currently scheduled I think they total around 15 or 16, though I personally haven't hosted all of them.

I am however involved in the selection process for each one. The selection process varies. On occassion it's me picking out a ship and itinerary I think would be attractive and fun for a group. Other times I'll ask a TA I trust to suggest a cruise, that in their professional opinion would do well. Other times the choice will be a suggestion from members of the CruiseMates community.

Then I discuss the possibilities with Anne and Paul (the bosses<G>) and once we concur that a particular sailing looks good, I set out to shop them to see where the best value can be found.

We do feel that we can normally get better "group packages" from TAs, than the average group, because of the significant advertising we supply to TAs who are chosen to handle our groups.

Though price is always a consideration, in the actual selection process we aren't simply looking for bargain basement pricing. We're also looking for cruises we think will be interesting for those who choose to participate.

CruiseMates is a very diverse and well travelled community, and if you take a look at the various group cruises we offer, I think you'll find the same diversity. None are alike, and none are handled exactly the same way.
Each group is organized in such a manner as to adapt to the cruise line, and the nature and chemistry of those who book into each particular group.

What is fun for one group, is not necessarily a formula for success with the next.

Hope that helps answer your question.

Regards,
Kuki

Excellent, I think this is the best way for groups to conduct themselves.

Thanks, Kuki.
