Group Travel


Getting together with friends and family has never been easier. Whether it’s weddings, reunions, birthday milestones, special interest groups, girls or guys getaway, we’ll ensure your group has a memorable vacation experience from start to finish.

There are many wonderful reasons to travel with a group. Cruise Planners - American Express Travel makes it simple to plan these big events on any cruise line of your choice. Virtually every cruise line has a group program that offers special benefits. And to qualify for group rates and amenities as few as 16 people need to travel on the same sailing.

  • Planning is easy. We're by your side for each step. We handle the details. Most lines even have a full time “group coordinator” onboard to assist once you sail.
  • Enjoy perks, like group discounts and points that can earn your group onboard amenities.
  • Customize it. We can arrange private shore excursions, cocktail hours, or other events, just for your group
  • So much is included. Fine dining, live music and shows, kids programs, fitness center, nightlife—it's all covered.
  • No payment headaches. Each person can pay individually, or as a group. We will handle it all.
  • We’ve made celebrating life’s most important events that much easier. We offer shoreside destination weddings starting at $995 and events packages starting at $795 at many locations around the world. Our event managers will handle every aspect of your wedding or special event.
What makes a group? Eight staterooms or more, that's it. There are no other obligations. More than 5 million group members cruise every year. Here are just some of the types of groups that have discovered this awesome travel options:
