About This Group

We had such a great time on 2017 and 2018 group cruises, let's plan one bigger and better than the last. This is the time and place to toss out some ideas and get a feel for what everyone would like - destination, ship, cruise line, dates, number of days, etc.... So start talking!

  1. What's new in this group
  2. This all sounds wonderful! They say the breakfast at Le Chateau is worth it - maybe we should take a look for one of the mornings! And I love the sound of sidewalk cafes and restaurants and art walks and cable cars and everything! ๐Ÿ˜
  3. Ran across this travel article on Facebook with ideas of what to see and do in Quebec City. Click to Open: Destination Quebec City
  4. Iโ€™d love the Fairmint. Check your email for a price I found.
  5. Well - I've always wanted to stay at the Fairmont...depending on the price comparisons, I guess - what do you think?
  6. @AndiD - since you and I are planning on arriving on the 7th for a two night hotel stay, here is my list of preferred hotels based on this article and recommendations. They are all located in the Old City, close to one another, and not far from the port. Do you have any in mind? Hotel Le Priori Auberge Saint Antoine Hotel 71 Fairmont le Chateau (that big, beautiful landmark castle-looking place)
  7. In case you werenโ€™t aware, Princess is running a 3-for-FREE promotion which is combinable with our group amenity of $50 onboard credit per cabin. In addition to the $50, youโ€™ll receive an additional onboard credit up to $200 per cabin AND Princess will pay your gratuities. Lastly, your cabin will be an upgrade within the category you book. Donโ€™t miss out - book by November 19th! https://7seajourneys.com/mbg/canada-and-new-england-summer-cruise-2019/
  8. Andi, I found it on YouTube. ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. This is great, Jan - where did you find this?
  10. Check out this great video footage from the ship!
  11. Here's a little infographic I made for our group cruise. Feel free to share and invite your friends and family, or pass it on to other CruiseCrazies who may not be active at the time. Reservations: https://7seajourneys.com/mbg/canada-and-new-england-summer-cruise-2019/
  12. And as promised, Jan has secured our cabin - so we are "in"! That is one big plus of joining our group cruise, Jan will take very good care of you from start to finish! She really listens to what your preferences are and patiently answers any and every question you might have! She will keep you well informed along the way and make sure you have everything you need to board the ship and enjoy your cruise. You can interact with the group as much or as little as you want, although we are all friendly people and do make good company, lol! ๐Ÿ˜ And we have so much fun planning - won't you consider joining us?!
  13. David and I are excited, too, Andi. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ›ณ๐Ÿน I have your form and will secure your cabin tomorrow! If anyone here is in contact with our inactive members, please pass the word about our cruise!
  14. I just sent in my reservation form - I am so excited! I hope lots of our Crazies and especially our new members will join us!!
  15. Now that weโ€™ve chosen our cruise for 2019. Iโ€™m closing this topic. Head on over to the new topic in our group:
  16. It's decided: Our CruiseCrazies Group Cruise 2019 will be aboard the Caribbean Princess, 10 days from Quebec City to New York, Aug. 9-19. I'm excited, are you? This is the place to join, plan and chat up our cruise. Here are the cruise details and reservation information: CruiseCrazies Cruise 2019 Let me know if you have any questions.
  17. The upgrade is automatic. In other words, it gives you the higher cabin category at the lower price; i.e. a BB at the price of a BE, for instance. So when I look at the pricing on my end, I see that BE, BD, BC and BB are all the same price with the promotion. By the way, a mini, a suite or any cabin category you don't see listed can be booked - you're not limited to the cabins I held.
  18. Yay - I am ready to book so I will fill out the form! But I do have a questions......so......I'm not quite sure how this upgrade on the promotion works. Are the prices that you quoted including the upgrade? Or if we sign up for BD cabin, we will get upgraded to a better one, or the price lowered to match a lower category?
  19. I have created a CruiseCrazies 2019 Cruise information and booking form, and this cruise is ready to reserve when you are. Check it out and tell me what you think: https://7seajourneys.com/mbg/cruisecrazies-cruise-2019/
  20. It's hard to say. I think it depends more on interest here and the number of members we can reach, but this is a great promo. With this 10-day cruise, you get anywhere from $75 per person onboard credit for an interior cabin to $150 per person for a balcony. Plus, with the upgraded cabin, you'll get up to a 4-category upgrade, depending on category. For example, a BB balcony cabin is the same as the lower BF. I just blocked out group space, am putting together a flyer, and will post it when I'm done.
  21. Good Morning! Thanks for posting the 3 For Free notice, Jan. Miranda - I'm so glad you are "in", and definitely the more the merrier, so thanks for sending the word out to your cruising friends. I do hope some will give us a try and join the website as well as this cruise! Jan - In your experience will this promotion draw takers in general? In other words, could good cabins go quickly?
  22. I think I will be in. And I send an email to my 'cruise friends' as well and told them about CC and the group cruise. Some people I met on the Sapphire are going to check out the website as well and may sign up too. I told them it's the friendliest cruise forum, no name calling, but always respecting each other. And there no such thing as stupid questions or remarks. So who knows. It would be nice to expand right?
  23. So far, it's just Andi & Ed, Jan & David and Miranda (I hope). I'm going to get pricing today for the Aug. 9 cruise, and open up a group for us and start pushing it. In the meantime, here is the information on 3 for Free which runs through Nov. 9th ๐Ÿ˜€:
  24. What does that mean for us that 3 for free sale? How many of the CC are coming? I'm still thinking about it and I'm trying to get more people to join. When do I have to have the answer?
  25. I'm hoping we can determine fairly soon if this sailing will be a "go" or not - Princess just announced their 3 For Free sale and this cruise is included! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
