Organizing your group, booking tips and advice needed!

Recommended Posts

We had to book our cabin on the cruise when we booked our wedding. We're going through a TA, who has 30 cabins blocked for our guests. The deposit is due on August 11th and after that the guests are not guaranteed the rate we have right now. If the price goes down, we'll get the lower price, but if it goes up, anyone who didn't put the deposit down will have to go with the higher rate. Our rate is about $100 cheaper than the rate on Carnival.com. We're also getting every 16th person free, a $100 onboard credit per cabin and a bottle of wine in each cabin because we're doing a group booking. I also don't have to stress about finding out who is booking, because my TA will update that for me.

Thanks everyone for posting your comments on this. I've been stressing as well. Would anyone mind sharing the info on the TA they used. Particularly one that guaranteed that they would provide a discount/refund if the price went down closer to the wedding date?

Also - Never worked with a TA, typically book online by myself. Do they charge extra fees to assist you? or does this commission come from the resort instead?


Thanks! ~Lynnea

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
