If you need additional accommodations for a major event, consider a dockside ship charter. Whether you’re planning a global conference, government summit, sporting event, or any other large gathering in a port city, using a ship as a “floating hotel” is your creative solution to add sleeping rooms and meeting space.

Advantages of Floating Accommodations

Chartered ships can cruise into port and then sail away after your event. No port facilities? No problem! We’ve built temporary terminals for Super Bowl in Jacksonville, FL and can do the same for you. You’ll have greater security than with a land-based hotel, freedom to customize the ship, and a variety of dining, meeting, and entertainment venues.
