I would like several of our friends to go on a cruise with us. If they do go how do you take care of the seating arrangements at dinner and not make friends feel they are not included. You can't possibly sit with everyone

Your travel agent should take care of the seating arrangements. You can have tables for 10 or 12 people. I like the round tables for 10. How many friend are going?

We had 18 people cruising to Alaska and they put us at a table for 12 next to a table for 6, then we would "sawp out" each night so everyone got a chance to eat with each other. When you book the cruise, you need to tell the agent that you are in a group and that you want to sit together. If its large enough group you should go through the group reservations agent.

I am hoping that there will be a group of 10 minimum. Some of them are going back and forth and aren't sure they want to go. There are several others that are not totally responding for the reasons I stated in my questions "how to get newbies to go" I didn't know they had tables for 10-12. Last time we sat by the back windows at a table for 6 and my family absolutely loves the idea of watching the ocean from the dinner table.

They have larger tables (10 and 12) but not many of them. Our table of 12 was a window table on the side. We have had the window table looking out the back and those are great. You should be able to get table adjacent to each other and seat the group together that way if you request that.
