As companies strategize to remain competitive, they must retain top performers, increase engagement, and attract new talent. Incentive travel remains the ultimate motivator, and expectations are higher than ever.
According to a new report from the Incentive Research Foundation (IRF), there is pent-up demand for travel programs that deliver unique, memorable experiences with the chance to mingle with friends and colleagues. The study also revealed participants’ increased interest in luxury accommodations and fewer out-of-pocket expenses. So it is no surprise that interest in cruising is also rebounding – a cruise event checks all the boxes!
Advantages of a Cruise Event
The benefits of an incentive cruise include the excitement generated during the qualifying period and opportunities for networking and relationship-building in a self-contained environment. The all-inclusive nature of a cruise ship (all meals, choice of entertainment/activities, fitness facilities, meeting space, and use of A/V) means easier budget planning for you and happier attendees.
Your group will unpack once and travel to several alluring ports of call on their “floating hotel.” Cruise lines have created exciting excursion options with destination experiences that are more active, immersive, and authentic. Attendees will return from their cruise inspired and motivated, with a renewed sense of connectedness.
Now Everyone Can Cruise
Are you ready to explore the world and create new memories for your attendees in a safe environment? You’ll be happy to know that cruise lines are making it easier for everyone in your group to sail. Nearly all have dropped Covid vaccine requirements and simplified testing requirements.
