GROUP SERVICES

We love our group leaders!  We work closely with you to orchestrate the details for your group cruise or escorted tour event.  We especially enjoy customizing aspects of the trip to create a unique experience for your group, with added features not available to other passengers on the same sailing. 

 

Our goals for you as the group leader are to…

Lighten your load

Guide you to organizing a fantastic event 

Make you look like a group leader rock star!

 

We have successfully assisted many group leaders who were initially overwhelmed at the unfamiliar task of organizing a group as well as experienced organizers looking for a partner to create the experience they want for their participants.  We’re with you from the beginning through when your trip is over. 

 

Having worked with groups from 10 people to over 500, we have the expertise needed to get the job done and do it well.  Our 40+ years of skill, training, experience, feedback and industry relationships go into assisting with the details to make your trip special from initial planning through the booking experience of your participants and the culmination of your actual trip. 

 

The types of groups we’ve worked with include family reunions, siblings’ get-togethers, girlfriend getaways, continuing education conferences, milestone celebrations, fundraisers, retreats, fan cruises and common interest groups.
