Why wasn't there an option for a 10 day cruise?

Limited appeal and choices. Most people can't be gone that long, and we also want to keep prices as low as possible.

Perhaps I when I know the date & port I can find another 7 day cruise & do a back to back.
Thanks

It would be nice to see everyone.

We will gauge interest based on the poll. As with many polls, people will happily vote but when commitment time comes the level of interest goes down. We'll make an executive decision on a "go/no go" number when the poll ends and we then post possible cruise choices.

When our recent forum cruise was announced we had all sorts of interest on-line but it never materialized in the form of bookings. We ended up filling a table for 12 at dinner. That small number isn't worth going through the hassle again, as far as a group booking, t-shirts, etc.

You can do that now! At least for the next few weeks.

Nothing has been announced yet about the Fantasy going to Mobile permanently to my knowledge. Not saying it couldn't happen. My gut feeling is they will move one of the Fantasy - class ships there though.

The trouble is that when a group cruise is suggested, you will probably have several members showing a interest but by the time it comes to actually pay a deposit, things have changed and although they were really keen at the beginning...various circumstances will mean they are no longer able to go.
It wouldn't surprise me if you get a 40% drop out rate or more.

Also for members outside the USA, it is more expensive when you add the costs of flying from Europe.

For those who do go, they will appreciate the effort it takes organise a group cruise.

I think your questionaire is a good idea and hope that it narrows down the choices for a group cruise.
