Happy Traveler Comment
Hi Rachel. Thank you so much for making such great arrangements for our NCL Pearl cruise. Everything went so smoothly for boarding the ship in Miami, all the in-between happenings, and departing from the ship at the end of our cruise. We really appreciated your picking our cabin for convenience. It was about 10 steps from the elevators. The NCL Pearl is a beautiful ship and our cabin was tops. We had great service and met a lot of new people. Thank you again for your great reservation services. I'll be happy to recommend you to any of my friends who are looking to do a cruise. — Marcie

Benefits of Hosting Events and Meetings at Sea

There are numerous benefits for a business choosing to hold a corporate event, business meeting, employee award cruise, or any type of retreat on a cruise rather than in a hotel on land. Cruise lines go out of their way to provide an excellent environment for a perfectly executed and cost-efficient event. Here at, our travel advisors are ready to help you set up the perfect event cruise for your business. Your benefits include the following plus any special arrangements you choose to make:

  • Everything is included in your cruise event. All accommodations, food, and entertainment.
  • Numerous activities are available day and evening for spouses and children.
  • Complimentary meeting spaces and venues are provided.
  • Complementary audio/visual equipment is provided.
  • A cruise event is a GREAT VALUE because meals, refreshments, cabin, entertainment, and meeting rooms are all included in the price of each fare. You get the same benefits if your group is small or large.

Those business event coordinators that have planned corporate and business events at hotels have dealt with a never-ending “charge for this and charge for that” experience. There are individual charges for meeting space, refreshments, rental of audio/visual equipment, accommodations, and all meals, whether on or off-site. When you book a cruise for your event, everything is included in the price. The service for making all these arrangements as well as the benefits themselves are all complimentary with the cruise.

Explore the High Seas While Continuing Your Education

An ‘Education Vacation” is an extremely popular method to provide additional training to employees or for people needing certifications. By mixing training and education with a fun and relaxing environment is a great opportunity to get away from the grind while also learning valuable tools.

Incentivize Your Employees with Cruises

Recognizing your employees or customers with incentives is an effective way to improve morale and increase your bottom line. Using a Corporate Incentive Awards Program helps employees feel appreciated for their contributions to the company to help lessen turnover issues while also letting customers know their loyalty is valued. Corporate Incentive Awards Programs are specifically designed to help boost employee performance and enhance customer loyalty.
