Cruises are an extremely attractive incentive and reward for superior performance
by salespeople and other employees. As cruising has moved mainstream, corporations
everywhere are utilizing cruises in bonus plans because of their great value for
the dollar and widespread popularity.
On a typical cruise your incentive travelers will get:
Access to business facilities and meeting rooms
Transportation to interesting ports
Vegas- or Broadway-style shows
Discos, clubs, bars
Pool, water sports
Fitness center, exercise classes, spa
Movies (theater and in-room)
The Planning Process
Successful incentive groups of eight or more cabins require the involvement
of a company travel manager. This professional is responsible for
designing the meetings and events the company desires onboard and
communicating booking details like the payment process, documentation
requirements, and dining requests to all participants.
With Vacations To Go, you will get a highly trained incentive group specialist
who will be your single point of contact for the planning and booking process.
Your group specialist will even create a personalized webpage for your group
where participants can get answers to questions about the cruise.
Onboard Host or Hostess
If your group is large enough, Vacations To Go may also provide an experienced host
or hostess to accompany your group. From the beginning of your trip to
the end, the host will assist with logistics such as air travel and transfers
to and from the pier, facilitate meetings and activities including team building
and entertaining group games, resolve issues that may arise on board, and
generally serve as your advocate.
Businesses may be able to write off incentive cruises as a business
expense. We encourage you to verify this with your tax professional.
If you are considering a cruise as your company's next big incentive,
call one of our group specialists now at
