Group Cruises

Specializing in Corporate, Social, and Charter Events of any size.

We plan events ... AT SEA. Our Cruise Event Specialists are experienced and have expertise in both small, intimate gatherings as well as detailed events attended by two hundred or more. Successful events at sea require a special eye for detail coupled with negotiating power. We have both.

 

Types of Events
  • Social Events: Social events can be any size. We love small and large groups. If you have at least eight rooms with sixteen attendees, you can plan your event with us!

  • Corporate Events: Whether it's a business meeting, incentive award, customer appreciation, or team building event, it's never just business. With every event, either part or all of the goal is to build stronger relationships. While we may be leaders in the cruise industry, our real goal is to facilitate those relationships

  • Charter Events: Chartering a ship is all about personal touch. The entire ship is yours - that means, if you want to fly a flag with your logo from that ship, you can! If you want every napkin in every bar to have your name and logo on it, you can! Chartering a ship is all about saying YES.

 

The Cruises.com Advantage
Whether it's an anniversary, wedding, or a concert with a fabulous rock star your experience is always about creating memories. With every event, either part or all of the goal is to walk away with more than you began with. We want you to laugh, celebrate, and enjoy your vacation in the style with which you are accustomed.

  • Industry Leading Expertise: By choosing the largest provider of cruises in America, you are partnering with a team that has excellent negotiating power. With larger events (more than 199 attendees) we have even more influence! This is our favorite thing - not only providing great pricing, but also the best value at sea! We'll ask the right questions to provide the right ship for your event. Our Event Specialists have intimate and first-hand knowledge of each and every vessel that we sell.

  • Customer Service: We'll walk you through the entire booking process to ensure that your group receives the biggest possible savings. We'll also tailor your reservation to meet your group's unique requirements and expectations. Because we have access to reduced rates, shipboard credits, and additional onboard amenities, you're sure to enjoy a great experience at a superb value!

    • Personalized Online Registration: By utilizing our services, you will eliminate event administration work from your to-do list. We will provide you with your own, branded website. It can simply be emailed to your guests. We collect all of the attendee information, and upload it to our travel partners. You won't have to lift a finger - unless you want to! We will never leave you guessing. From the very beginning, we will provide you with clear timelines for event coordination as well as clear payment deadlines.

    • Communication of event information: Is there pre-event information to share? Do you have a communication plan that requires clear timing? We can coordinate email communication and automate email communications based on your timing requirements.

    • Customize the Experience: What experience do you want to provide your employees or customers? How can we brand your event? What are your goals? Each is unique and requires a special eye. We match your event type with specialists who understand and enjoy planning a corporate event.

    • Onboard Support: If your event requires onboard support, we'll be there. We want to support your event however you see fit - even if that means traveling with you! Different events have different requirements; always discuss your "on-ship" needs with your Event Specialist.
