    I have booked a block of rooms for my group. They gave me a better deal than I found on any of the discount sites, almost half off. My group was more than happy to go along they did not want to have to try and find a place, and we thought it would be easier if we were all together the next morning to go to the ship that way no one will miss out. I am getting married on board in port and we all have to be at the port by a certain time. However I told all of my guest that they could choose to stay wherever they wanted(they just chose to stay together). We are all flying from the same place but we booked our own flights. I had called and got group rates and a few days later my mom found cheaper airfare so we all just booked it on our own almost all of us are on the same flight even though we didn't do the group.

      I have a block of rooms for my group through Marriott. They give you a website which allows you to see how many people have booked. I have 3 months prior to cancel any nights if people aren't arriving in advance.

I also said to check the website for more info and on there I included the same hotels from the invitations with a little more detail including the price. I also said to try your favorite travel site to get the best deal.

        We chose to use the same hotel that we always use when traveling. We also were against the block for the same reason Cattie stated; we already have enough on our plates.

        I like this idea of just giving everyone options as to where to book their rooms. I'm in the process of getting this together now too! Thank you.
