Hold Your Corporate Meeting At Sea

We'll Take Care Of Everything, So You Can Get Down To Business

Step away from the ordinary - the hotels, the convention centers, etc. - and host your next business event on the open seas.

We know that your employees want to feel appreciated, and we know that executives want to demonstrate their appreciation without blowing up their budgets. Convening your meeting aboard a cruise ship is the perfect solution.


Don't Hesitate! Call 1-800-259-2408 (sales prompt #2) or Request A Consultation To Start Planning Your Corporate Event Today!
Why Choose A Cruise Ship Over A Land-Based Facility?
  • A cruise is a unique and memorable event, creating a sense of camaraderie and adventure
  • Ship-based events are less costly (and many of the amenities we offer are exclusive)
  • The "wow" factor: choose from a spectacular selection of state-of-the-art venues ship-wide (e.g. theatres, stadium lounges)
  • All of the business features and resources you'll need including Internet at sea, the ability to live broadcast/podcast, etc.
  • You'll visit multiple destinations, but pack and unpack just once; shore excursions help make the most of your time ashore
  • Onboard, you'll find something for everyone: activities, entertainment, etc. (and it's all included)
  • Your event can be branded with company and/or sponsor logos/signage
  • Contracts that are often more liberal than a hotel's/resort's (e.g. friendlier attrition clauses, a less restrictive cancellation policy)
What Kinds Of Corporate Events Can I Host Aboard A Cruise Ship?
  • Conferences/national meetings
  • Product launches and continuing-education courses
  • Membership clubs and network-marketing groups
  • Incentive trips for salespeople (in the financial, insurance, manufacturing and other fields)
Leave The Planning To Us
You can cross menu-planning off your list, too. At sea, passengers get to select what they want, when they want it (as opposed to the typical hotel/convention center offering of a set appetizer, a choice of two entrées, and a set dessert).

We can arrange for separate hospitality/registration, deliveries of "welcome" gifts to your group's cabins, daily bulletins, even a dedicated TV channel! And when it's time to come ashore, we'll be there to help: our experts can help organize private group events (as well as customized transportation, both pre- and post-cruise) in any and all of the ports that you'll visit; many of these excursions can be tied into team-building activities or other themes that are consistent with your meeting's objectives.
Can I Charter An Entire Vessel?
Yes! Charter an entire cruise ship and you'll be in virtually complete control - you'll decide which ports to visit, what your shipboard menus will include, and more. Because when you charter, the cruise line will bend over backwards to accommodate your program, and nearly everything can be customized/branded on your behalf, including door plaques, your ship's deck names, menu covers, cocktail napkins, champagne/wine bottles, even a cruise line's private island! You can even arrange for an airplane fly-over, and trail your company's message as your ship departs.

In return, however, your cruise line will expect a big-time commitment from you. Because of the costs associated with taking a ship out of inventory, you'll likely need to sign an irrevocable letter of credit for the whole of the charter fee (and you pay for the entirety of the ship, no matter how many attendees show up). And if you've decided to relocate the ship for a particular itinerary, you’ll be expected to pay for the time that the ship is in transit. For these and other reasons, our experts recommend that you make your charter arrangements at least two years in advance of departure.
