Definition of a “Group Leader”
An individual or entity that organizes and assembles a group of individuals who wish to register and reserve staterooms on a cruise ship as a “group” for any reason and is compensated accordingly. “Groups” are generally formed as a result of a common thread among the members, but, with the approval of Entertainment Cruise Productions, LLC (ECP) “groups” may also be formed or expanded by efforts at the various concerts and performances of the performing Artists.
Purchase of a cabin by a Group Leader
A Group Leader may only qualify individuals for his/her group after their own purchase of a cabin for the subject cruise.
If a person on the list has sailed with ECP within the last three years and is not a past group member of the Group Leader submitting the name, that name will not qualify. Please note that is the intention of ECP to ensure that Group Leaders are properly rewarded for their efforts. To that end, if a name has been cleared on the Group Leader’s list and appears on the manifest of the cruise, the Group Leader will be credited accordingly.
As long as an individual is actively serving as a Group Leader for ECP then said individual shall be compensated for passengers who continue to book with said Group Leader.
