On our February Spirit Caribbean cruise, we had 2 affinity groups- car dealers(reward cruise) and divorce lawyers. The lawyer group had a couple of business meetings(?write off the cruise), and they took over Restaurant 2 for a whole evening. The groups mainly socialized amongst themselves and comprised about 1/3 of the passengers all together. I feel the presence of affinity groups (especially larger ones)on a cruise could definitely negatively impact the cruise for the rest of the passengers. Is there a way to find out from SB if there will be an "affinity group" on my cruise- especially before final payment? I did ask my TA to check before my Spirit cruise, because I have read on CC about that practice- but she did not get any information from SB.
