Denise... I am a bit suspicious about that site. The holders of group space is a list tightly held by the cruise lines for obvious reasons. I don't think what's listed there represents even 1/2 of 1% of group space held on those sailings. I don't know, but I'd guess that the site contacts agencies and offers to list their group space on the site for a fee. That may be why I see the same agencies again and again.

Thanks Denise, glad you found the site!

Even though it may not be representative of all the groups, Ernie, I still see a few sailings I would want to avoid, and a few it might be interesting to crash!

Wonder if Robo will be on the Law Enforcement / Emergency Personnel "Lights and Sirens" Cruise on the Conquest 9/14/03?

No groups on my upcoming Millennium sailing... but I missed the Kosher cruise by two weeks! That might have meant some interesting menu items!

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Ernie, you're right. It says on the web site that those are only groups posted by agents, which is why the CM Thanksgiving cruise is wrong--the agent probably forgot to send in the correction. I'm sure it's by NO means a complete list.

But, it's better than nothing. I wouldn't have known there's a slot tournament group on my cruise. Not that it matters, and strangely enough the cost of my cruise was a lot less than what the group is offering or I might be tempted to play some slots!

This discussion brings up another question.......

Why are group sailings proprietary information that the cruise lines won't release? If the cruise lines are reluctant to release this information for fear that fewer passengers will book these cruises, and then passengers who would rather avoid large groups end up on a group cruise, wouldn't this situation also create unhappy customers?

In my view, it's better to be up front with potential passengers about any group sailings, and avoid any nasty surprises. I believe that this kind of customer service, while it may decrease revenues for one particular cruise, creates happier passengers in the long run. And happier passengers make for greater revenues in the future.

Just my thoughts,

Dean

Dean... the chances are you have never been on a sailing that did not have dozens and dozens of groups on board. More often than not, the group members have no clue that they are part of a group. Most t/a's who do any kind of cruise volume book primarily into group space. Yes... there are frequently large groups on board, but the vast majority of groups on most lines are in the dozens of cabins.
