I can see why people would be reluctant nowadays to have their name out there. Back then, most likely the info stays onboard and not scanned and sent to someone back on land, with access to address databases. After the cruise, some of the passengers probably wouldn't mind, but maybe some would still be reluctant to have that info out there, even when they're back home.

Yes, identifying people as being on a cruise and away for 7 days or more could be an open invitation for home robbers. Luckily for us we have house sitters because I do announce on the board when I am taking a cruise.
They were still around in the 90's.

Transferring your focus from cruising to touring . . .
My favorite land-tour company, Tauck World Discovery, provides a list of guests with hometowns. When I travel with them I provide a sheet at the last night's Farewell Dinner, on which guests provide their address essentials, should they wish to, voluntarily! I then collate the information and forward it (via snail-mail) to all who provided information. That way, those who enjoyed their fellow guests enough to maintain some sort of contact can do so, with minimal negativity!
Excellent way of handling it.
Sorry not to have replied earlier. I somehow missed your question.
A Tauck group is typically 30-40 people. Never a full motorcoach, never more than one coach, at least not on any of the seven tours I've done with them.
The problem with that is I waited so long to learn other CLF members will be on my cruise I thought it was never going to happen. I found out from Dusty's Sapphire Princess countdown ticker, not the roll call thread I had started a long time ago.
Stay tuned for my review of the Sapphire Princess northbound repositioner
