    How would I book a european cruise.

    I did a custom one on travelocity and it costs like $1500 for 7 nights.

    Is their a cheaper way to book a cruise?

    i worked as a travel manager so i'd say not necessarily, it depends on the accommodation (cabins, hotel rooms if any), service (meal, sightseeing) they offer including the price, when the cruise will be, in the main season or not...
    of course this $1500 for 7 nights per person could be much, but i cannot decide until OP gives us more info

    ok i just talked to the lady on travelocity. she said that a group buy would be the best way. because then we could split it.

    yes, of course a group buy always lowering the price
    i dunno how many people counts as a group with this company, in my country a group is usually min. 20 people or above, but it could be less if it's a smaller boat

    no, i don't...sorry :(
    i never tried it before from the client point of view, they just walked into the office and they said e.g. we representing a class of kids from this school and we want to do a group buy...
    but it isn't a bad idea to make a website dedicating to this problem (maybe there aren't any), to make an international searchable database with people who are willing to do a group buy and of course with the trips, cruises
