No matter what I come back with I can tell that they dont believe me. How do others have such an easy time getting others "on board" and how is it that other people easily get tons of people to go on the cruise with them
I find sometimes its the excitement that you give talking about your cruises. I have had groups that have bombed and have set up groups that have had as many as 100 cabins going..wish I knew the difference.
I have had people tell me they "couldnt swim" and didnt want to be out on the water that long. I just tell them I am not a great swimmer either and have no intention of jumping ship or planning on swimming out in the middle of no where.
Good luck, hopefully you will get your group together.
