Sea Cruises will plan your group vacation from beginning to end including accommodations, dining arrangements, meeting agendas, equipment, supplies and conference materials, activities, amenities, and any communications needs.
During the beginning planning stages, Sea Cruises will help your group choose the best cruse line and cruise ship and the most appropriate itinerary. If needed, Sea Cruises will market your event. They offer customized programs that may utilize a variety of different marketing vehicles either separately or in combination. This may include: brochures and flyers, theme development, postcards and mailers, posters, email blasts, banner ads and press releases, or even your own group event website with booking engine.
Sea Cruises partners with a number of different cruise lines to provide the best match for you and your group. You will choose from the following popular cruise lines: Carnival Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean, The Yachts of Seabourn, Regent Seven Seas, SilverSea Cruises, and Windstar Cruises.
Sea Cruises offers individual incentive programs and group incentive programs, and costs for your event will vary greatly depending on a wide variety of factors. These include but are not limited to: cruise line, type of cruise ship, various accommodations, season, and length of cruise, as well as any optional amenities or extras you would like to include.
What you can expect is: no charges for standard Sea Cruises’ services, quotes for customized services will be provided in advance, and customized web sites and booking engines are provided at no charge for groups of 40 or more guests. And because the vast majority of your cruise options will be included in your cruise package, you will more than likely save up to 50% off of land based group packages such as hotel or resort packages. The following is included in your meetings package and/or during your sea cruise, but the cost is usually extra at meetings hosted by a hotel or resort:
â€¢Audio Visual Equipment
