Cruise Events The Future of Meeting at Sea - Northstar Meetings Group

Cruise lines are working harder than ever to help planners maximize the benefits of holding meetings and events at sea. As the cruise industry makes its highly anticipated return, it has adopted a high bar for responsible tourism, health and safety standards in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and rigorous protocols that have been implemented across all aspects of the cruising experience.

Increased interest in outdoor spaces perfectly positions cruise vessels as ideal hosts for events of all kinds, as ships feature ample outdoor spaces for safer meetings, breakouts and social events. In addition, planners can choose to charter a vessel so that only attendees’ and the ship’s crew are on board. Indeed, a wide range of positive changes and enhancements by cruise operators await planners looking to make or keep the cruise community among their venues of choice for meetings and events.
