pre~cruise accommodations?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
