What is a group cruise anyway?

I have been talking about "group cruises" and thought about the fact that not everyone knows what what a "group cruise" is. Let me see if I can explain it.

Cruise lines consider a set of 8 cabins with at least 2 people per cabin as a group.

A group cruise is one which a group of people that have a common interest, whether it be members of a social group or club, schoolmates, church group, professional group, family reunion, friends getaway, etc. all get together and go on the same cruise on the same dates.

I usually have a "group leader" who has the responsibility of helping to promote the group to the targeted people, such as family members or members of a social organization. I provide the group leader with tools such as registration forms, a group website, fliers, etc. to accomplish this. I also usually reward the leader with some assistance with their own cabin.

With a group cruise, I can also offer a much lower deposit to hold your cabin. Typically only $50.00 per person, instead of $150.00 to $250.00 per person. Then interest-free payments until the full balance is due. With most groups, there are amenities that can be offered like onboard credit or gifts. Often times the price per person is lower in cruise groups too.
