  1. Begin with collecting emails for your family, Why? Almost everyone has an email these
    days, this will allow you to capture the highest number of family members, specifically older
    members of the family who may not have social media. Use Facebook, Instagram and
    other media sources as a back up to email distribution. Use phone numbers as the last
    option as some may not want to share their numbers nor is it a good way to do mass
    information sharing. Phone numbers should only be used for a pdf banner that “quick”
    updates those who did not receive an email or social media request.
  2. Choose your cruise line first, then time of year and destination of the cruise. Do not choose
    anything too distant in travel time or cost initially or you risk excluding some family
    members by pricing them out. Keep it close and always work for affordability. Narrow the
    cruise down to exact ship and departure date also. You can initially ask family members
    where they would like to go in general but when its time for the final decision of when and
    where, you make that decision on your own. May and September are good months for
    cruise discounts and easier for many families to work around school.
  3. Collect all information for the cruise and make a cruise banner, email or social media post
    and send it out to the family. Be sure to include the Cruise Line, Ship, Date, Destinations,
    booking options and an email for questions. Provide links to websites that they may click to get
    directly to this information above. Address airline questions also, Please encourage them to
    arrive the day BEFORE the cruise. Supply as much information as possible, the easier it is to
    find, the more likely the family will partake.
  4. Provide periodic updates to keep them engaged! Maybe do a webpage or a countdown
    timer. The point is to get them excited and make it a great trip for all. Have you designed a Tshirt?
  5. Plan a spot to meet on day one so that all can get reacquainted, maybe sail away on deck.
    Plan at least 2 days on a short cruise(4 day) and 3 days on a long cruise(8 day) for everyone to
    meet for an activity, example dinner. Let other days be their own time so that they feel like its
    “their” vacation also.
  6. Speak about doing another cruise while you are on the ship. It gets them motivated. I plan
    every two years.
