1. Anyone can be a group leader for the cruise.  You do not have to book a stateroom on the cruise to be a group leader.
  2. For every stateroom booked as part of your group, you will receive $75 cash or credit toward your booked stateroom.  To receive this cash or credit, you must be named as the group leader at the time of booking.  There will be no retroactive credit given.  
  3. Once you reach 12 staterooms booked as part of your group, you can choose to receive a FREE interior stateroom (includes taxes, port fees, and gratuities – a $1,900 value) instead of your cash/credit.
  4. Any staterooms over 12 continue to earn you the $75 cash or credit.  There is no limit to the number of staterooms that can be a part of your group.
  5. People joining your group receive $150 per person off the regular rate, OR they can choose to use an active promo code if it will give them a lower rate.  You receive your cash/credit regardless of the rate they have.


  1. How do I “activate” as a group leader?

  5. Do cancellations affect a free stateroom I may have been awarded?

    Yes, they can.  If the number of staterooms in your group drops below 12, there is a chance you could lose your free stateroom.  You can work with René Haub, the Group Plan Coordinator, to keep that from happening.

  9. How does someone become a part of my group?

    They must call our Reservation Team at 855-208-8822 and use your name as the group leader during the initial booking for you to receive credit.  Our reservation team will ask if they were referred by a group leader, but it is important that anyone you have invited uses your name.  We can not give group credit if you are not mentioned during the initial booking call.
