Intimate Meeting Space, Sophisticated Media Systems and Hospitality Amenities Top the List; Suitable for Board Meetings and Private Receptions, Rewarding Stellar Performers
Miami, Fla., January 24, 2013—Cruise ships today boast comfortable, roomy accommodations that rival the finest hotels and resorts. Drawing on their corporate cruise background, longtime cruise meeting and incentive specialists, Landry & Kling have released their picks for the eight best cruise ship suites for business at sea. In addition to concierge-level service and room amenities, Landry & Kling’s picks feature high-end entertainment systems, facilities for private meetings, spacious hospitality areas, and private dining and guest facilities.
“In today’s fast paced world, meeting planners are looking for top-notch group dining, entertainment, and engaging activities and fitness facilities – all at an affordable price. A cruise provides all that and more,” said Jo Kling, president, Landry & Kling. “Cruises remain a powerful incentive to motivate and reward groups to reach certain goals. They also offer a surprisingly cost-effective alternative to traditional land-based meetings.”
According to a recent poll conducted through Google Consumer Surveys, cruises are a compelling incentive. When asked what four-night travel experience would most motivate respondents to reach challenging work-related goals, 39 percent selected a Caribbean cruise, making it the top choice.
Landry & Kling evaluated the suites based on size and layout, meeting areas, hospitality features, and concierge-level service and amenities. All suites chosen are excellent venues for planning and networking sessions, afford exclusivity for chief executives, and provide the ultimate incentive reward for top sales performers.
Landry & Kling’s top eight picks for cruise ship suites (in order of ascending size) are:
- SeaDream Yacht I or II – Owner’s Suite
- Silver Cloud – Owner’s Suite
- MSC Divina – MSC Yacht Club Royal Suite
- Seven Seas Voyager – Master Suite
