I'm already booked on this cruise through MEI (but not any group rate). What do I need to do to get included in the group stuff?

Just let your MEI agent know you definitely want to be part of the group.

I believe they didn't have the group bookings set up yet on this one, but once they do they will bring everyone into the group and reprice if it's cheaper.

I was really shocked at my wife's reaction to this ..... I just mentioned it in passing, and her response, Ooooo, Bucket List item....

I honestly think we may be booking ....

Here's where I'm completely lost on this ..... I'm completely blind on the trip down and trip back, what airline (I wish Southwest, but we know that's not happening) ..... where to stay before sailing..... lot's of moving parts that need figuring out.

Also, being that this would be our first Group Cruise, is there a limit to the number of passengers that can be a part of the group?  Things I just don't know.  I'm going to need a lot of hand-holding on this one.

Any and all insight would be greatly appreciated

Is anyone concerned, that Rhapsody of the Seas has been anchored outside St. Maarten for 2 years.    The ship needs a lot of help!    I was on Explorer of the seas March 20-27 2022.   When we sailed past there was a lot of maintenance needed.

Looking forward to cruising together!

Concern? No.

Rhapsody is an old, small ship. You gotta be okay with that. It's gonna be fun and offering a classic cruising experience. They'll keep maintenance going, but if you want to look for rust there or chipped something there, it may not be the ship for you.

While Vision Class isn't my favorite, I think by virtue of having a group cruise here and so many friends onboard, the ship will be secondary. Plus the amazing itinerary.

This is where being part of a group will be a benefit. We are all in the same situation. We have a team of TAs to help scope things out for us and look into things such as group space in a hotel the night before. You can bounce ideas off everyone else in the group and benefit from everyone else's research!
