CRUISING AND CORPORATE EVENTS
Freestyle Cruising® is perfect for your next corporate event.

When you need to hold a meeting, convention, conference, company retreat or an incentive program – our Meetings, Incentives & Corporate Events support team will help you plan the perfect event. And, with a single point of contact, getting down to business on the high seas with Norwegian Cruise Line is easy and convenient.

Why choose a cruise over a land resort?

Cruising with Norwegian gives you tons of options for a successful event. Along with the first-class treatment, gorgeous views and a wide range of accommodations, you’ll get the facilities of a luxury resort combined with the excitement of travel to exotic destinations. All of the ships in our award-winning fleet offer multiple dining venues, flexible scheduling, a superior staff-to-guest ratio and adaptable meeting spaces complete with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment and Wi-Fi capabilities. And, only Norwegian Cruise Line gives everyone in your group the freedom and flexibility of Freestyle Cruising®. Take advantage of it for your next corporate event.

Here are some great reasons to choose Freestyle Cruising® over an ordinary land-based resort for your next corporate event:

  • Many amenities that have additional costs at land-based resorts are included in your cruise price.
  • On a per-guest basis, ship-based events are less costly than land-based events.
  • Planning is simple since all of your accommodations, food, entertainment and business needs are taken care of.
  • A cruise is a unique and memorable experience that will motivate and inspire employees, clients and participants alike.
  • An innovative venue such as a ship is the foundation for a successful event.
  • Getting down to business is much more enjoyable when you've got an ocean view.
  • Self-contained, floating resorts maximize meeting attendance and participation.
  • A wide array of activities offers something for everyone, including spouses and kids.
  • A cruise creates a sense of camaraderie and adventure not found on land.
  • Guests will enjoy different ports of call, without the hassle of packing and unpacking.
  • Our selection of shore excursions makes the most of everyone's time ashore.
  • Every ship has a dedicated Group Services Coordinator to follow up on every last detail of your event.

We can also provide a number of tools to spark interest in your incentive program prior to the cruise, including videos, brochures and more.

Why choose Norwegian Cruise Line for your corporate event? 

  • Your event will have a real “wow” factor. 80% of the U.S. and Canadian population have never been cruising and what better way to make an impression than taking your group on a new experience.
  • Why pay extra for your Audio & Visual needs? On our ships podiums and state-of-the-art equipment are all included free of charge. Even gratuities can be built into the cost.
  • We’ll schedule the perfect venue for your group’s activities at no extra cost. Our fleet of ships feature numerous functional spaces. These include not only rooms used exclusively for meetings, but also everything from lounges to the main showroom.
  • Your security and safety are covered. Each of our ships has a large, well-trained security team to protect the interests of our guests.
  • Your group can take part in a wide range of activities on board. Rock climbing, wine tastings, cooking demos, bowling can be integrated into your event or serve as diversions for downtime.
  • Our cruise itineraries feature multiple ports to provide a variety of experiences that could enhance a corporate event function.

We also offer customized options to corporate event groups. Some are complimentary, while others have a very reasonable add-on cost.

Here are a few examples:
•    Private cocktail parties, award ceremonies and receptions
•    Turndown and stateroom deliveries
•    Beach Olympics & Scavenger Hunts on our private island

All our ships offer great venues for your corporate event. Pride of America is especially well suited to host your group. It has seven meeting rooms, but the most impressive space is a multi-level, circular facility with multiple AV screens – it’s called Diamond Head Auditorium and we’re sure that this unique space has potentials we haven’t even thought of yet.

We are your guides

Before you sail, our team of experts will provide all the information and advice you’ll need to get up to speed quickly. You’ll be assigned one program specialist who will serve as your single point of contact throughout the planning process.

Once on board, our group service coordinator takes over. He or she will see to it that all details are taken care of. So, you’ll never stress. We’ll be there for you.
