Customizing your corporate event takes it from ordinary and expected to unique and memorable. But If you’re accustomed to planning land-based programs, you might be wondering how you can customize a cruise to make your meeting attendees or incentive group feel special. There are many ways to customize a program at sea – limited only by your imagination and budget.

There’s nothing like having your own neighborhood!

When you book a meeting, incentive, or group program on a Royal Caribbean’s Oasis-class ship, you can reserve an entire shipboard neighborhood for a private event. Choose from The Boardwalk, featuring a seaside carousel, 2 rock climbing walls and aqua theater (1,200 reception) or Central Park with lush, tropical greenery and specialty dining/entertainment venues (400 reception) – great for your reception or themed party! The Solarium Pool Deck with its tranquil environment (700 reception) is a stunning venue for a pre/post-dinner reception or dessert reception “under the stars”.

Each neighborhood is unique, featuring fabulous decor and remarkable ambiance. Whichever one you choose, your group is in for an unforgettable experience!
