If you’ve ever planned a vacation for your whole family or your best group of friends, you know all that it entails: The skills of an accountant, the patience of a saint, the contacts of a concierge and the knowledge of a professional travel agent. Luckily, there’s a way to travel seamlessly, complete with a discount and a dedicated vacation planner to help guide your entire crew on an adventure they’ll all love: Say hello to cruising.

Here are just a few ways Royal Caribbean will make your next group trip easier than ever from start to finish.

Lodging For Any Group
No matter the size of your crew, we’ve got the perfect stateroom for you. Whether you’re looking for the Ultimate Family Suite, rolling out on Symphony of the Seas with room for up to eight people, or spacious, connected, deluxe, private or family-friendly staterooms, there is an option for groups of all shapes and sizes.

If you’re looking for an ultra-luxurious experience, our Royal Suite Class can be a great choice, specifically, our Star Class which comes with a Royal Genie—an attentive helper who crafts personalized experiences tailored to your interests!

You Leave the Planning to Us
When you decide to travel with Royal Caribbean, you’ll be assigned an experienced vacation planner to help book the entire trip. From picking the perfect itinerary to planning shore excursions and experiences everyone will remember, your expert will handle all the details through to the day you set sail—when you’ll then have access to our knowledgeable team on board the ship. You’ll have a dedicated booking number, which means you also have us on speed dial.

Whether it’s a family vacation, corporate meeting or retreat, or even a wedding, large groups receive specialized service and great savings. For every eight staterooms (16 guests) reserved, you’ll receive credit that can be used for one person’s fare or applied equally to every member of your squad. When it comes to tallying the total, guests can either pay individually or tap one person to handle the bill too.

There’s Something for Everyone
We all have our things — fitness classes, artisanal craft cocktails, rock climbing, surfing or skydiving, pool time, spa indulgences — and rest assured, Royal Caribbean cruises cater to all ages and interests. Kids will love the waterslides, adults will enjoy relaxing time in the spa and afterward the whole family can engage in a friendly game of glow-in-the-dark laser tag. There’s plenty more for younger guests too, ages tots to teens, since each age group has their own programs and sure-to-please activities, from  arts and crafts to science experiments to dance parties.

Colleagues can mix and mingle with a cocktail before a Broadway production. College friends can wager big bets at the casino, and for ladies’ night out, the girls can raise a toast in the signature Boleros Latin lounge before hitting the dance floor. At dinner, everyone at the table can indulge in new culinary flavors, from the rotating menu in the main dining room to one of many specialty restaurants – like Izumi Hibachi & Sushi or Jamie’s Italian.

There Are Big Perks On Land
Heading ashore with a large group has its perks, too: Groups of 20 or more can take private tours tailored to everyone’s interests, budgets and abilities. This means visiting the places on your bucket list, from the Great Wall of China to ancient European cities to the colors and culture of Caribbean islands or the untouched wilderness of the Last Frontier.

Royal Caribbean’s Europe cruise itineraries include must-see destinations, so you can see the Parthenon in Athens, Greece, walk through the detailed facades of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain and explore the Colosseum in Rome. Adventure seekers can cruise the Caribbean and take Instagram-worthy pictures of the group scuba-diving in Grand Cayman, hiking underground caverns in Cozumel, racing dune buggies in Jamaica and swimming with sharks in Belize.
