When you choose our Cruise Event Logistics Service, we listen to your objectives and initiate plans for all aspects of your cruise program to ensure continuity from beginning to end. A dedicated cruise event manager will pro-actively handle all the details so you can confidently focus on your business objectives.
We leverage our significant buying power with the cruise lines to get the best group pricing and amenity package, then negotiate the contract terms on your behalf. We source and book your ship, handle the logistics, arrange meeting space, group dinners, custom events and shore excursions; and take responsibility for the successful implementation of your cruise program. Our job is to be your cruise advocate and make sure you have everything you need to create your best event ever.
Your Dedicated Cruise Event Manager
Under your direction, a dedicated Cruise Event Manager will initiate recommendations and plans for all aspects of your cruise. Depending on your group size and program needs, your Cruise Event Manager will also sail with you to assist behind the scenes. Your onsite staff person will serve as your onboard “convention services manager” and oversee embarkation / debarkation and all daily events in between, review your master accounts, lead the travel staff and much more.
Ship and Port Inspection Support
If needed, we will accompany you on a ship visit and/or site inspection cruise, prepare an agenda of items to be considered on board, and coordinate meetings with key shipboard personnel and ground operators.
Your Landry & Kling Cruise Event Manager will provide comprehensive operational reports & assistance, such as:
- Summary Chart – recommending flow and location of business and social events, port activities
- Detailed Program Resume – with day-by-day timelines & information, contacts, checklists and “Event Orders” for each shipboard function
- Summary of Staff Assignments – defining areas of responsibility and day-by-day schedules for each member of on-site travel team
Cruise-Savvy Travel Staff
Depending on the size of your program and your own staffing capacity, Landry & Kling’s highly experienced travel staff can add to your team to ensure seamless event execution. These uniformed, radio-equipped professionals know their way around ships, groups, and a well-tuned Hospitality Desk.
Give your participants a red carpet cruise experience they couldn’t duplicate on their own. We excel at creating themed events on board as well as exciting events & tours ashore.
Coordination of Other Cruise Program Elements
Landry & Kling can serve as your central point of contact for additional program needs such as pre/post hotel stays, ground transportation, special VIP arrangements, room gifts, printing, equipment rentals, shipping & preloading of all program materials, etc.
