                                                                                                                               10 WAYS TO ACCOMPLISHMENT THROUGH CRUISING

 1  INCENTIVE CRUISES      

        Group or individual cruises can be used as a motivational tool for employees, dealers, customers or independent contractors to increase sales, service or productivity.

 2  EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION

       Cruising provides a productive setting in which to generate future business opportunities together, or, when you have had a great year and want to thank the people  

       that made it possible. Consider the lasting value of a cruise instead of cash or merchandise.

3  BUSINESS MEETINGS          

       Innovate by choosing a cruise for your annual meeting, board meeting or sales conference.  Cruising provides a productive setting in which to plan and generate future business

        opportunities.

4  CONVENTIONS & SHOWS  

        A ship is a convenient, self-contained venue that can add that special Attraction to increase attendance and control costs. 

 5  CONTINUING EDUCATION               

        Many service industries require continuing education credits – what a way to accomplish this in a new and innovative environment. ASSOCIATION CONFERENCES – How

        about your annual meeting on a cruise ship ? Programs for medical, legal and other professions can run successfully on a cruise when the right ship and destinations are selected.

 6  CONSUMER INCENTIVES     

        For a competitive edge, auto dealerships, for example, can motivate consumers to buy/try their products with a special promotion offering the opportunity to “Win a Chance in our    

        FREE Cruise Drawing, if you Test Drive a Car Today!”

 7  EXECUTIVE RETREATS              

        If your company or organization is looking for a change, you can count on a cruise to deliver the results you need, at any budget level.

 8  EMPLOYEE BENEFITS             

        A valuable benefit program for your employees at minimal cost to your company.

 9  FUND RAISER                               

        Schools and organizations can motivate donations through travel programs that earmark a portion of the proceeds from the cruise to a worthy cause or charity. 

10 FULL-SHIP CHARTERS            

        For the ultimate cruise experience, charter a vessel for the exclusive use of your company or organization.  You can fly your own flag, customize the itinerary and daily events, and

        even control the capacity for 50 to 3000 passengers.

 TIP: TO SECURE A CHARTER, CRUISE LINES NORMALLY REQUIRE A CONTRACT, FIRST DEPOSIT AND IRREVOCABLE LETTER OF CREDIT GUARANTEEING THE BALANCE OF PAYMENTS.

 NOTE: IF THERE IS A SHORTAGE OF HOTEL SPACE FOR A CITY-WIDE CONVENTION IN PORT CITY, CONSIDER A DOCKSIDE SHIP CHARTER TO ACCOMMODATE THE OVERFLOW. YOU WILL GET INSTANT HOUSING AND LOTS OF PUBLICITY.
