Reunion groups come from all over the country to set sail on exotic high sea locations. Groups vary from ten to up to 300 or more people. Three- and four-day itineraries from Miami to the Bahamas and the Western Caribbean are most popular on Carnival Cruise Line or Royal Caribbean Cruises. Three- and four-day cruises are the most popular choice for class reunions, while seven-day river boat cruises on the rivers of America remain the most desirable for military reunions.
Cruise reunions include many complimentary items, such as champagne in the staterooms, meeting rooms, microphones and audio-visual equipment, cocktail parties, fruit baskets and badges. Cruise Holidays negotiates these amenities with cruise lines for your group.
The Lofton-Russell Family Reunion sailed aboard the Superliner Fantasy on a four-night cruise from Port Canaveral to Nassau, Bahamas. The Wright-Zeigler Family Reunion is just back from a similar itinerary on the Majesty of the Seas. Just 50 miles from Florida, these fun-filled islands are a world apart. Unspoiled beaches, glittering casinos and fabulous duty-free shopping explain why.
The Live Oak Union (Yuba City CA) High School 50th reunion of the Class of 1951 took the west coast Baja, Mexico, tour from Los Angeles aboard the Carnival Superliner Ecstasy. After the cruise, they wrote that the cruise was the highlight of their reunion and that they “will never forget the memories we made. Thank you for making it happen!”
For real reunion value, cruise ships offer wonderful activities supervised by counselors for children from tots to teens from ice cream socials to language lessons. Reported by Cruise Reunions, 800-852-3268; [email protected].
