My husband and I had the first same sex "wedding" ceremony on Celebrity Century from Auckland to Sydney in January 2012. We were members of the Pied Piper group along with some 30 other guys. Pied Piper coordinated and organized the ceremony and the whole group were invited. It was the first same-sex ceremony ever on Celebrity, and I am sure the charming captain had a lot to tell his wife and kids when he returned home. It was a wonderful time, the officers and crew were fantastic and so supportive, and the group was great. We are booked on another two Pied Piper cruises - Mediterranean on 21 August and Queen Elizabeth Black Sea cruise in September.

I really thought it was beautiful to watch you and Donald exchange vows onboard. Really thought that both Celebity's event coordinator Matt and Pied Piper did do a great job. Could tell though the Captain was nervous at the start but really got into the feeling/fun of the ceremony the end.

I haven't and neither have I received a booking confirmation from PP.

Having done both, I have to agree with most of the posts although PP experience is only based on the 2012 Post Thanksgiving cruise. Communication was not what we're used to with RSVP. We tried to talk to Derek several times before booking, only to be told he prefers email. Since we were newbies to Pied Piper, and skeptical about what the cruise would be like, would a brief chat on the phone have killed anyone's day? That said, PP staff redeemed themselves on board.

I would also question whether the PP rates are all that much better than the cruise line's published rates. After a little research, we found our fare to be about the same as Celebrity's. The difference? Celebrity rates included tax and port fees. PP did not.

Only sharing OUR experience. Different companies provide different experiences. We're booked for RSVP Alaska in July, primarily because we have frequent cruise points that dropped the price considerably.

Bottom line: would we book PP again? You betcha!

we've only received the booking confirm so far as well. I'll be following up with pp before the 18, when the promo ends.
We have a group of 10 so far- I think it will go up with some on the fence right now. We are all on deck 7. Really looking forward to it.

We've been on the post-Thanksgiving cruise and it was a lot of fun. Almost felt like an all Gay charter, with over 900 members in our group. We took over the nightclub at night and the pooldeck during the day.

The majority of the group were slightly older than us (35-65 yrs) with a few exceptions but that was no problem...we enjoyed the attention from our fellow gentlemen.

In fact we had so much fun, that we decided to book the same cruise and another one with Pied Piper for 2013.

The best thing about booking with a gay group agency is that you can join in all the group events and excursions if you like and if not you can just step aside and chill out on your own or with that special someone.

I've heard that the post-Thanksgiving cruise is the big event for Pied Piper and the other groups are much smaller in size and less party-going, but I will know more about that after our Greek Isles and Turkey cruise in july.

Anyway, I highly recommend booking through Pied Piper. my experience is that fares are much lower than other TA's and the service has been spot on.
Derek has always been very quick with replying to all my questions, and god forbid there has been many.

Kudos for him.

Hi! Tommy and Ray here- Glad to hear about your cruise experience on PP for this cruise! Sounds like a Blast and we are really looking forward to it so much. I had friends that did this cruise a few years back and also had a great time too. We had started talking about it last November, however, when Celebrity did the promo for the free beverage package, thats when we booked- currently have 10 in our group. We are all from the Orlando area.
Our group has been dealing with Bruce @ PP- always quick to reply. I'm sure as the time gets closer, we'll start talking about going down to Miami area a night before for pre-cruise! Let the party begin! ha!

I went ahead and booked some of the ship excursions; however, I might cancel some depending on when and what Pied Piper has for the group to do off ship. Have your received any boarding information, luggage tags etc. from them yet?

Although my partner and I are not with the PP group, we are traveling on this cruise and we have organized several private tours, with room still available. You know there are several other threads on this forum for this cruise, including one in the lgbt roll call section. There you will find the private tours i have setup.

One thing that can make PP rates confusing is they list all the cabin categories on their website, but at least half aren't discounted.

For example we're going on the June 24th sailing on Infinity, If I booked a C1 or C2 I would pay same rate as Celebrity charges, I booked a C3 and it's a ~$900 less per person than Celebrity.

Because Pied Piper only get group rates on about 5 or 6 cabin categories, don't make the assumption all the categories are discounted. You really need to check them and do a side by side comparison to see which ones are the biggest bang for the buck

It would be easier I guess if they just listed the group (discounted) rates, but until they do I make up a quick spreadsheet to compare them apples/apples

And when comparing, keep in mind that the rates shown on Pied Piper don't include port fees like almost every other site does including the major cruiseline sites. But Pied Piper does show the extra port fees in the words on the left side. Just add them together before comparing as its not always obvious. But I agree that in certain categories they do offer a good discount.

I have now done 6 Pied Piper Cruises. I actually prefer the smaller groups to the Post Thanksgiving. It really is a great opportunity to meet up with other people on the ship

When there are just 20-30 or so people they will normally have just 1 host. They will help organize meet ups for drinks and they usually have 1 or 2 happy hours where your drinks are included. Pied Piper also tends to be couples so it is nice to meet up with other couples on the ship.
