What is a Group Cruise?
SeaDream defines a group as having a minimum of 6 to 18 double occupancy cabins.
Benefits of Booking as a Group
Groups often get the best overall value -- if you plan well in advance -- particularly when you factor in special group amenities like complimentary wine or champagne, chocolates, cocktail parties, shipboard credits, casino credits, spa services, and private gatherings. Plus, by booking early you get to choose the location of your group's cabins. To take advantage of group benefits, you must book the entire group through Vacations To Go’s Group Department.
On a typical cruise your group will get:
- Stateroom accommodation
- Transportation to interesting ports
- Gourmet dining
- Discos, clubs, bars
- Pool, water sports
- Fitness center, spa
- Movies (theater and in-room)
The Planning Process
All successful groups have a group leader. The group leader is responsible for promoting the group and communicating booking details like the payment process, documentation requirements, meeting space needs, and dining requests to guests as they sign up.
With Vacations To Go, you will get a dedicated group specialist who will be your single point of contact for everything throughout the planning and booking process.
Vacations To Go’s Technology Makes It Easy!
Your Vacations To Go group specialist will create a personalized Web page for your group where participants can get answers to questions about the cruise, sign up, and even pay online, saving you time and energy. We'll also provide online reports so you can track registration information by guests like the number and category of cabins booked, the amount and type of payment made, and much, much more!
Corporate or Incentive Groups
Cruises offer the best overall value for businesses planning an offsite meeting, building an incentive for their salespeople or designing a special event for their employees, partners or clients. Modern ships also provide the perfect social environment for professional groups to mix and mingle. After meetings your group can dine together in a gourmet restaurant, gather by the pool for sun and fun and much more.

SeaDream will also work to brand your company's event at every opportunity with items such as ice sculptures of your corporate logo. For full charters, cruise lines will even let you set your own itinerary! To take advantage of group benefits, you must book the entire group through our Group Department.
The Planning Process
All successful corporate and incentive groups require the involvement of a company travel manager. This professional is responsible for designing the meetings and events the company desires onboard and communicating booking details like the payment process, documentation requirements, and dining requests to all participants.
With Vacations To Go, you will get a highly trained corporate and incentive group specialist who will be your single point of contact for the planning and booking process. Your group specialist will even create a personalized webpage for your group where participants can get answers to questions about the cruise.
Every corporate and incentive group must sign a contract with the cruise line that covers the prices, amenities, terms, and conditions for their group booking. As one of the largest cruise-selling agencies in the world, we have strong buying power and access to competitive rates on every ship which enables us to negotiate the best contract on your behalf.
Businesses may be able to write off corporate cruises as a business expense. We encourage you to verify this with your tax professional.
