There is no sure way to find large groups on your sailing. You can try googling the cruise ship and sailing date. That MAY give you the webpage for a group.

i think the cruise line should have to tell you if there is a large group...they can easily see that on the manifest..even if the group does not have individual names they have space blocked with a date by which they have to release or put names on cabins. An agent should have no problem getting the information. No different than a small hotel being taken over by a wedding...after one experience with restaurant being closed and private parties in the pool I always ask if it seems like a "wedding location". Most groups etc. do not book at the last minute.

will someone check the Crown Princess , March 11, 2018 cruise date and post any results here?

I tried, but when I clicked on Princess - it just gave me a general description of the lne, and not specific cruises.

Or just tell me what I am doing wrong - Thanks

There is a search function in the tabs at the top of the page. I see nothing on there for the Crown on March 11

site linked above is extremely limited and shows very few of the groups booked...more of a promo tool that actual help. I think googling the name of the cruise can give some obvious results but probably no substitute to calling the line and if one agent can't help ask for supervisor. Explain that you have had some experience being on a semi chartered cruise line and choose to avoid it in the future...they can help but my guess is they are under orders to down play it as much as possible.

I just did a quick internet search for you.. 'crown princess march 11' and it did not come up with any hits.
If there were a big group, promoting their cruise, and they had info online, sometimes a search might find that.
That is how I found out about the cruise that we have booked.

The cruise we have booked does not show up on that theme cruise website. So, groups may or may not be listed there. It looks like this website accepts listings, but somebody has to actually list them.

I am now hoping that this group of singles might not be as large as I was thinking.
This Agency has many cruises listed for singles to sign up for. So, since this is one of many.. like a dozen cruises this year.. there may not be a large enough group to make a big impact onboard.

We are hoping to find out more, and somebody should be contacting us soon.

thanks for the lookup

quick question - who are you expecting to contact you about what other groups may or may not be on board your cruise... your TA ?

We had a large singles group on one of our sailings and the women out numbered the men, that's for sure. I actually ran into one of the women who lived in my neighborhood in Naples that I knew.
Crooners was busier and they took some of the rooms, but it was a great group and didn't do anything to ruin our time. Most were the regular Princess age group.

I am curious; did I miss it, or are you just avoiding answering those asking what sailing you are referring to?

Thanks CJ!
I am beginning to hope that this might be the case for us.
Even though, at first, I was wondering if it might be a larger and younger group.

And, just a note, I was just hoping for some general input about groups like this, after seeing the other thread.
I am not sure the exact sailing and other details are really needed.
