The saying the more the merrier definitely applies to cruises. There is nothing quite like the magic of being on a huge floating resort with friends, family or a combination of the two. Regardless of the reason for your get together, here are a few reasons to consider a cruise for your next group trip:

Something for everybody- Cruises offer a wide range of activities including but not limited to gambling, dance productions, plays, movie screenings, classes, wine and cheese tastings, games, sports activities and more. This is all before you even get to the ports of call! It’s pretty much impossible to not find something enjoyable for every member in your group.

You can schedule your own excursions- The beauty of a cruise is its okay to split up because you won’t have to worry about where to meet up later since everyone will end up back in the same place at the end of the day. Then, you can catch up and exchange stories over dinner!

You can get your own room- Should you decide an excursion on your own wasn’t enough time away from your group you can look forward to the sanctuary of your own room for down time.

Awesome discounts for groups- One of the best things about cruising as a group is the discounts that you can enjoy- sometimes as much as 10% or more. That may not seem like much but when you are saving 10% on a $500 bill you suddenly realize you have an additional $50 to play with at the card tables or to buy that gorgeous necklace you have been eyeing in the gift shop since you got on board.

They are pretty much all-inclusive- Your food, entertainment and lodging are covered for the duration of your vacation. Sure, you can buy extras, but there is comfort in knowing that you can have plenty of fun without shelling out any additional dough!
