Azamara Cruise shipFor groups of all sizes, a full cruise ship charter provides the ultimate in privacy, exclusivity, and customization opportunities, Nothing compares to the experience of sailing to exciting ports of call on “your own ship”. Being part of an elite group on a privately hired cruise ship or yacht is an experience that simply cannot be duplicated at a land-based venue.

Why Charter a Cruise Ship?

When you hire a cruise ship for your meeting, conference or incentive program , it will motivate attendees and leave them with a renewed sense of pride and loyalty to your organization that will last long after their cruise. Since everyone on board is part of your group, there’s more informal mingling, networking, and creative exchange of ideas. Your chartered ship is a self-contained environment with no outside distractions, boosting attendance and attendee participation. Shared attendee experiences both on board and ashore lead to increased camaraderie and stronger relationships.

Cruise Customization – The Key to Your Success

Because you virtually “own” the ship during a cruise ship charter, you can customize your entire event to deliver an exclusive experience – one your program participants cannot duplicate on their own. You can display your logo freely throughout the ship, fly your company flag from the ship’s mast during the cruise, even custom-design your itinerary and shore excursions.

During your cruise ship hire, dining times, shipboard activities and entertainment schedules can also be scheduled around your business agenda. Of course, you also have exclusive use of all the ship’s facilities and public rooms, giving you greater flexibility to create dynamic meetings when and where you choose.
