We’ve always thought of a cruise as something you do when you go on a holiday and sail around the Greek Islands, or in Melbourne’s case, you take one from the Port Melbourne Pier and arrive in Tasmania! For those who haven’t thought about it before, a cruise brings all the incentives of seeing a large area of a place without having to make multiple travel and accommodation arrangements. All the benefits are the same but can be used in the context of a business conference or meeting, making it that little bit more exciting. What better way to have a conference than waking up in a new location each morning!
Companies such as P&O Cruises leave from most places in Australia and have all the common facilities of a hotel or events venue. With meeting rooms, boardrooms, performance areas and more, their cruises and staff are equipped to help you with any of your business needs. There are even team building activities that can be arranged on board the ship. However, one of the best parts about the cruises are all the other facilities that aren’t to do with business, they have pools, waterslides, shopping, restaurants and obviously accommodation, all in the one place! It is the perfect option for those wanting to bring their families along for the fun! If staying overnight isn’t your idea of fun, companies such as Captain Cook Cruises allow you to hire out part of the ship, the deck or the entire ship for the day. All meals are provided and it is a fun way to have a work event or business meeting. Captain Cook Cruises explore Sydney Harbour and give you panoramic views of everything to see around.
For those wanting to go international there are plenty of options around, companies that you traditionally would have thought only allow for holidays, can actually tailor a group package for you so you can enjoy all the benefits of a holiday but get some work done at the same time!
So jump ship and book your next conference on the seas!
