When cruise line veterans Joyce Landry and Jo Kling founded their business in 1982, they introduced a bold new concept: a travel company focused exclusively on meetings at sea. They went on to establish Landry & Kling Inc., the first company to specialize in corporate cruise meetings and events. (Check out the Landry & Kling Wikipedia page to learn more about our history.)
Over the years, our capabilities have expanded to include specialty vessel projects such as workforce housing, military support vessels, hospital ships and disaster relief. Landry & Kling Global Cruise Services is now recognized as the world leader in ship charters, supplying broker/ logistics services for accommodation ships and long-term, complex vessel charters.
Our success stories include “floating hotel” ship charters for global summits and sporting events, special interest charters and music festivals, meetings and incentives at sea, offshore support and disaster relief vessels. Whether your project requires cruise ships, passenger barges, ferries or floatels,
If we can’t find you a suitable vessel, no one can!”
