The #1 Group Leaders' Resource


Looking for ideas and insight? Check out our carefully selected itineraries online; call us for customized pricing and flyers. Ask us anything! We've sailed on most ships and can help you match your group's preferences and interests to the cruise line and ship that would suit you best. 

Promoting and Planning


 Every detail of planning a cruise with Grand American has been designed to make your job effortless. We provide custom flyers, brochures and web link sign up forms.  

Flexibility and Choices


 Group leaders choose how involved they want to be in the process. Some ask that their promotional materials have their group members call and pay us directly (and we copy them on all receipts.) Some choose to have everything go through them. Some choose our NEW, easy, online sign up form that is secure. Whatever you choose, we can accommodate.

Behind The Scenes


Group Leaders are busy people with many responsibilities. Consider us your executive assistant. Grand American handles online check in, immigration information, airline seat assignments (whenever possible), special dietary or handicapped requests, printing boarding passes, and every detail of your trip. We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week when your group is traveling. 

Cruise Experts


Grand American focuses all of our time and energy into knowing everything there is to know about cruises and cruising. We have been in business since 1986. When you or your group members have a question, the answer is coming from years of first hand experience. Ask us anything! We guide you by understanding your preferences and offering you choices. Tell us what you want, we know how to find it. We have cruised on almost every cruise line and ship.
