When googling my ship and sail date the Joystar Group - block space is listed. Does anyone have any idea who/what this is? Thanks!

As hammy said..Joystar is an agency ...they must have blocked space on the cruise. Most sailings will have groups blocked by agencies.

The travel agency that goes by an triple vowel, is present on almost every cruise.

And you won't even know those kinds of "groups" are sailing with you. They have very little in the way of group activities during their cruise ... maybe a private cocktail party or something like that ... but that's about it.

You'll get TA groups on every cruise. We even had one quite large one on my Hawaii/South Pacific in January 2006. We only knew they were there because they all had these paper pineapples on their stateroom doors ... and we noticed there were an awful lot of pineapples hanging around.
