We would be pleased to try to include you in as many of the activities as possible. By the time New Years rolls around I think the group will be large enough that you should have no problem meeting many of them. More likely it'll be difficult to avoid us <G>
There will be some activities, such as cocktail parties etc. which the TA will be arranging which, unfortunately, we may not be able to include you.
But, if as you say, you've booked the cruise direct with Princess, it's my understanding that you could simply take your deal and transfer it, as it stands, to the TA handling the CruiseMates group. Plus, I would be VERY surprised if booking directly through Princess resulted in you getting a better deal than the rates we've shopped.
Many of us booked are Captains Circle members, and we'll also receive the Captains Circle benefits. PLUS the CruiseMates group has a guarantee covering any possible price reductions that might arise!
U might just take a look at the details and compare....<http://www.cruisemates.com/articles/CMcruises/golden-kuki.cfm>
Either way, I'm sure we'll see u onboard
