We can make travelling together as a group with friends, family or even work colleagues easy. Whether it’s weddings, reunions, birthday milestones or special interest groups, at CruiseAlong we’ll ensure your group has a memorable holiday from start to finish.
Why Book as a Group?
You can often take advantage of special rates or benefits by booking as a group. Most cruise lines for example have a generous group program, and to qualify for group rates and bonus amenities as few as 16 people need to travel on the same sailing. That's right, just eight cabins make up a group. And as a group you'll enjoy perks like group discounts and points that can earn you onboard amenities. Plus, if you book 8 cabins you could qualify for 1 Free berth*. Yes, you could travel for almost nothing if you organise a group. A credit to the value of one person travelling in the group is available to either refund back to you or perhaps apply to everyone in the group in the form of an onboard credit. It's up to you the group organiser.
Types of Groups
Here's just a small example of some of the types of groups that we can help with:
Destination Weddings, Vow Renewals, Bridal Showers, Birthdays, Graduations, Reunions, Museums and Cultural Groups, Hobbyists, Dance Groups, Girlfriend Getaways, Scrapbookers, Retirement Celebrations, Divorce Celebrations, Clubs and Sports Associations, Political and Professional Business Groups, Religious Organisations, Church Retreats.
Your group can make use of spacious onboard conference facilities as well as perhaps taking advantage of any relevant interests in your destination of choice. Evening receptions, cocktail parties and much more offer the opportunity to socialise together.
Planning Group Travel
Planning is easy. We'll help you every step of the way. We handle the details. Most cruise lines even have a full time "group coordinator” onboard to assist once you sail. We can even arrange private shore excursions, cocktail hours, or other events, just for your group.
So much is included. Fine dining, live music and shows, kids programs, fitness centre, nightlife—it's all covered.
No payment headaches. Each person can pay individually, or as a group.
Corporate Group Travel
Incentive rewards are key to improving and recognising performance. The most effective incentive programs create a desire among your staff to earn rewards by achieving goals. Group travel is being utilised more frequently than ever to motivate employees, distributors, dealers and customers. Because pricing is nearly all-inclusive, you know your costs upfront and your incentive winners are not forced to pay for extras while enjoying their reward.
Incentives work because they include only a single fee, destinations are not limited, and they are nearly all-inclusive. From dining to relaxing to exercising to dancing, they can have it all in one attractively-packaged, convenient and affordable incentive program. And when it's over, they will be ready to come back to work toward another one.
Here are several objectives that can be achieved with an incentive program:
- Increase sales volume
- Spur new account sales
- Increase market share
- Launch new products to market
- Improve quality control
- Improve morale and goodwill
CruiseAlong is ready to assist in putting your group travel incentive program together.
*Free berth is based typically on the average cost of each person in the group, less taxes and government fees.
