We are looking at booking a group cruise for 23 people - 11 cabins in all. Does anyone recommend a certain line? We have cruised on RCL and Carnival before. Mainly looking for extra perks, incentives and group rates.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. We are open to just about anything. The only specifics we have are: must be during 4th of July week, balcony rooms and a casino.

Thanks!

Whatever you decide don't delay in setting up your bookings. July being peak season and many ships already filling for holiday dates you may have limited options already for keeping your group together. Get with the cruiseline of choice or preferably a good T/A that specializes in groups and get started. Be sure when you do call you have legal first and last names for all pax as well as DOB for each. That way you can put a courtesy hold on the cabins you want while you finalize the details with your group. The hold will be short term so be sure your group is ready to finalize the booking within a day or two of the hold.

Cheers, Neil

TrvlPro is right find a good Travel Agent. Try to find one that has experience with groups. From past experience a TA can get you perks that you might not get on your own. I have a group of 60 leaving Feb. 10th on Costa and the extras we got are great.

Is there any t/a that you would recommend? I have been looking on the net but never know which ones to trust or not.

Thanks!
