    Hey Ladies
    How many shore excursions are you booking for your group and how many days is your cruise? Our cruise is an 8 day Caribbean cruise that visits five islands and I technically have only booked (well my wc is booking it) one tour and that is in St Thomas. It will occur immediately after the wedding. But I was thinking I should book at least one more tour/excursion on another island. We are in PR the night before the wedding so we plan to go clubbing as the bachelor/bachelorette party and I really want to spend the day in Antigua with my new husband. But I could schedule something for Tortola or Nassau. But I kinda wanted people to choose the excursions that they wanted to do on their own. Maybe I could choose a day that we're on an island for a while so we could do the group thing early then ppl can have time fore themselves. What do you all think? Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

      My cruise brides tend to do one event as their bachelor/bachelorette parties (either on or off the ship) and then just one big excursion together. If time permits. On an 8 day cruise, you've got plenty of time. I wouldn't suggest doing any more as people will want time to enjoy their vacation their own way too.

      What you can maybe do one night is bring it up at dinner "so what's everyone doing in Nassau" on thursday? And see if people want to do something together. That way not everyone will feel obligated to go (even if they don't want to), but will also feel included if they do want to.

      In all my travels with groups I've enjoyed it most when we all do one, maybe two things together and then go our own way the rest of the time. Each night at dinner we then sit around laughing and telling stories about what we did that day.

        I'm not planning any excursions for my group. We're only in Bermuda for 2 days, so 1 day is of course the wedding. The next day, I want to spend time with my new hubby and this way my guests can do what they want also.

          We aren't doing any group excursions either. We told them we have only one requirement of their time during the vacation, and that's our wedding day! I'm sure some of them would have appreciated an organized event, but we decided against it.

              Don't feel bad.

              The way I see it is, they're already putting out x amount of dollars to come see us get married, we shouldn't occupy all of there time. It is a vacation also for them. I know most if not all of my guests are using this as there vacation for the year.

                  My issue was that since they are putting out soo much $ to come to my wedding the least I could was pay for a excursions? But I'm paying for a tour after the wedding the wil be over $1000 based on how many ppl we have so that'll have to suffice. I love this site bc I can discuss things with you guys that I would never bring up to my bridal party or family lol, and everyone on here understands where I'm coming from.
                  Thanks everyone
