Cruise Ships Can be a Great Venue for Events
Conducting meetings, conferences and workshops at sea on a cruise ship is an economical and efficient way to stage your event. You will be amazed at how easy and affordable it is to conduct an event on a ship compared to a land-based venue. Many things you pay extra for on land are all included in the price shipboard. Cruises are highly popular with attendees and help make your event a roaring success. Select the length of cruise that is best for your business needs from 3, 4 ,5, 7 or 10 days and longer. Choose great itineraries such as Alaska, the Caribbean, Hawaii and Mexican Riviera that are sure to be a hit with conference attendees who experience a perfect blend of interesting, enjoyable ports of call with days at sea to conduct important business functions. For longer, more impressive events, Europe and the South Pacific offer outstanding opportunities. For large groups a partial or full ship charter gives you options that will make your event very special.

Do you love to teach and people tell you you're good at it? If that describes you, think about creating an "Education Vacation." It is a very popular way to provide required or optional training to people who need CEU credits or other documented training that combines the training with a trip that creates fun, relaxation, a chance to get away and take the family and learn important information at the same time.
Important Considerations for Events on Ships
Perhaps the most critical issue is ensuring the selection of the right ship with the right facilities, equipment and itinerary that allows you to achieve your event objectives. Knowing the ins and outs of the cruise industry is essential to that. Planning a shipboard event is labor-intensive endeavor and we can make it very easy for you. If you want to do it yourself to save money, ask yourself the key question, "how cheap does a bad event have to be to be okay?"
