Do you have an exceptionally dedicated and hardworking team? Why not consider conducting your next business meeting on a cruise? Demanding projects can sometimes stagnate the minds of even the most talented business professionals. A break away from the traditional confines of the concrete business world could be just the incentive plan your team needs to kick it into high gear. A business meeting cruise is also an exceptional performance reward for a job well done. Planning, motivation, training, and even team building are all possible at sea aboard a luxury cruise line. What you can accomplish with your team in the boardroom, can now be accomplished on a business cruise.
Cruises are all-inclusive, therefore very cost effective in the business world. Due to the sheer size of a luxury cruise liner, accommodations for large groups are not an obstacle. If you book a business cruise you can also rest assured that the necessary business tools will be on hand for your use. Most large cruise lines offer audio-visual equipment and high-speed internet access as part of their business meeting cruise package. Some cruise lines are even offering the entire ship for private business cruise charter. The cost of a business cruise can vary greatly and sometimes depends on the services required while onboard. One little-known perk to a business cruise is that participants may be eligible to write off up to $2,000 of the cost of their taxes.
When considering a business cruise, especially if your group is exceptionally large or you require the charter of the entire ship, is to make your reservations for up to a full year in advance. In most cases, you will be held responsible for payment in full regardless of whether you’re actually able to sail on your business cruise charter date or not. Therefore, planning is crucial when considering a whole ship charter or booking for an exceptionally large group.
