One of the best ways to earn discounts on travel is to plan group vacations. If you want to plan the mother of all group vacations, you might want to consider a group cruise. People take cruises to celebrate weddings, gather families for reunions, and meet like-minded singles. There are group cruises for just about any event or occasion you can imagine.

When it comes to finding great group rates for cruises and other all-inclusive vacations, it's important to elect a travel planner. The travel planner for your group is responsible for researching options, communicating with the group, setting travel dates, planning the budget, and making final travel arrangements. Many cruise lines work with group travel planners to find the best possible rates on group travel.

Group Cruise Rates

When planning a group cruise, you can expect the rates to vary depending on a number of different factors, such as group size, length of stay, special accommodations, activities, and destination. As a general rule, the larger the group, the greater the discounts. It never hurts to ask for group rates and travel incentives if you're not satisfied with the initial price quote.

While the group travel planner has a great deal of responsibility, she may also reap the benefits of all her hard work. Many cruise lines offer incentives to travel planners who book blocks of rooms at a time. In addition, the travel planner may be able to negotiate additional perks for the entire group based on customer loyalty.
