One of the biggest misconceptions about cruise ships is that they’re not “business appropriate” and lack meeting space. Nothing could be further from the truth! Many modern ships accommodate today’s business functions with flexible meeting and conference space, plus a variety of lounges and theaters that can be used for collaborative breakouts and group events. Now Celebrity Edge is about to revolutionize cruise ship meeting space with the introduction of “The Meeting Place”.
The 1,970-square-foot state-of-the-art venue commands a central location on the ship, complemented by awe-inspiring views like no other meeting space – on land or at sea. Choose theater-style, classroom, U-shaped, or circular layouts with modern, comfortable seating for up to 200 attendees. Table tops work well with or without covers or skirts.
With soundproof dividers, advanced audiovisual capabilities, varied seating options, private office space for event planners, mobile bars set up for food and beverages, plus a fully equipped pantry with a bar, the possibilities are truly endless! The space transforms seamlessly from day into night, with high-top bar tables or comfortable lounge seating for mixing and mingling.
Audiovisual systems — from wireless microphones to a mini sound board — come as standard equipment. An electronic whiteboard helps capture brainstorming sessions easily, while the impressive 98-inch and 75-inch LED screens add a powerful punch to business meetings and a subtle mood for social occasions.
Other venues on Celebrity Edge available for private events and meetings include the three-deck spanning Eden; the revolutionary, cantilevered Magic Carpet; and the serene Rooftop Garden. Each venue offers extensive audiovisual capabilities, expansive views, and a one-of-a-kind experience.
The Destination Gateway is a multi-purpose area that transforms from a luxury embarkation station into an intimate setting for destination enrichment talks and other programming. This flexible space brings the outside in with airy outsize hatches and can accommodate up to 100. Business groups and corporate incentive groups can utilize this space as a modern, state-of-the-art conference room for meetings and presentations.
