Hey Gary and welcome back! Anyone can get a group rate simply by booking 8 cabins. When you reach a group of 8 cabins, one person (not cabin) goes free. Trust me, it really isn't worth the hassle to be a group coordinator! Sometimes if you join a cruise group, there will be extra activities and tours, but rarely any dramatic savings other than convenience.

I would have to agree with this somewhat. I really wanted to try cruising and didn't have anyone to go with me (I'm not that lame, just circumstances right now) and so lo n' behold I got a flyer together, made a gazillion calls for prices, got a bunch of people at work together....and I am now the group leader for 30 people going in September...and it is ALOT of work! I am NOT getting my room free, however...I have passed that savings on toward our motorcoach fees to make it cheaper on everyone else. Overall, our cruise price was quite a bit cheaper than if I was going with just one person but we are adding a motorcoach to get there and back so when you add in our motorcoach fees our total price is just the going rate for an average 4-night cruise.

I would do it again though, already...just because I KNOW we are going to have a BLAST! And now I have some"one" to cruise with!! ...Some"many" actually!
