Is there a meet and greet?

Will there be a meet and greet on the Princess, Alaska, May 27th sail?

Looking forward if so.  Let me know.

Welcome to Cruiseline :)

If you go up to the top and click on the drop arrow beside MORE, and then click on Roll Call, you can find the one for your sailing and ask the other folks who will be on your cruise.

Enjoy your cruise!!

"Meet and Greet" times and places are arranged by a member of the roll call, Facebook group, etc. Sometimes a group will arrange to meet at a certain bar at a specific time, or they may book a place such as the piano lounge during the day, through the Cruiseline and arrange to have snacks served (at a preset price). Groups sometimes have games their own casino tournaments, and other get togethers throughout the week.

Be sure to check in at the roll call. If enough members register, you will be able to organize a Meet & greet but someone has to contact the cruise line to make arrangements.

Thanks, have heard nothing so I guess it will be nothing. Just joined cruiseline...learning. Safe travel.

Thanks for the info....have looked and find no DIY meet and greet. But still looking to the cruise. Safe travel

One of the cruises we were on had a casual meet and greet at a bar by the Lido pool which the Cruiseline/ship had nothing to do with. On Facebook they arranged a time to meet and since most had chosen YTD, they headed to the Diningroom together. Before the cruise they planned times to go to the casino, some planned excursions together etc. For a group of strangers pre cruise, they had a week with several get togethers planned.

Never been on at a meet & greet with Cruiseline folks, yet. Over the years have been on a number of them with the Brand Xs though. As previously mentioned by others, the initiative for these depends upon the energy and enthusiasm of a few guests. Out of all we have been on, only one really stands out. That was on the HAL Amsterdam, Oct/Nov 2007, cruise from Singapore to San Diego via Australia and Hawaii. There was a couple on board who were really congenial and got into the organizing bit big time. They even convened periodic meetings where they conned crew members to speak to us. One problem is that so many voyages are comprised of multiple back to backs it is difficult to determine at what point a M & G should be scheduled. For the most part though, the meet and greets turn out to be mostly busts, in my opinion, since nothing is formal, everybody stands around without knowing what to do if anything and as boredom sets in a few engage in conversation by themselves, for a bit, then everybody leaves without any round of introductions, name tags, etc. My guess is that the organizers initially are well meaning and do a decent job but aren't inclined toward public speaking, leading the entire gathering to be for naught.
