Thirty-five years ago, Joyce Landry & Jo Kling founded the first company to specialize in meetings at sea and corporate cruises. So it was only fitting that Landry & Kling celebrated their milestone anniversary on board a cruise ship.
Our hosts from Celebrity Cruises went all out to arrange our Milestone Event aboard Celebrity Reflection in PortMiami. We felt like Academy Award winners at the biggest after-party of the year!
Throughout the afternoon, Jo and Joyce were moved to laughter and happy tears by cruise industry legends, longtime colleagues, friends and supporters who shared their memories and sentiments.
Reflection’s Celebrity Central was just the right size for our champagne reception followed by video highlights from our past 35 years. Many of those in the audience were part of that journey and were included in Landry & Kling’s visual “trip down memory lane”. A few of our cruise line friends who were not able to attend the live event appeared on screen to extend warm wishes to Joyce and Jo, including Celebrity Cruises CEO & President, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, who was on vacation.
Our party then moved to Reflection’s exquisite Blu Restaurant, which Celebrity had reserved for our private lunch. The white roses on the table, accented by the blue glasses and the architectural details of the restaurant showcased Celebrity’s “Modern Luxury”. The beauty of the room and the intimacy of the relationships shared by so many participants made for a truly memorable event, topped off highlighted with a delicious surprise – the most artistic cake we’ve ever seen!
Jo and Joyce were blown away by that cake (with the perfect replica of our Anniversary logo), and wheeled it around the room for all to see.
Thanks to all of our friends and supporters, near and far, for cruising along with us for 35 years…we’re looking forward to sharing many more memories with you!
