Cruise Versus Resort: Why Conferencing Is Making Waves At Sea

June 15, 2015 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Setting a new standard in the conference and incentive sector, Silversea Cruises invites Professional Conference Organisers (PCO) and Event Managers to view and compare the level of quality and value of these services offered aboard Silversea’s mid-sized, luxurious and intimate ships when directly compared to five-star hotels and resorts.


Silversea specialises in full ship charters, conferences and incentive offerings and, with an all-inclusive pricing model, event planners have access to a high value alternative to a five star resort.  This, coupled with Silversea’s ability to tailor itineraries and services to meet a diverse array of individual requirements, makes luxury cruising ideal for conference and incentive bookings.

Karen Christensen, General Manager & Director Sales/Marketing, Australasia, says when compared to luxury resort accommodation, Silversea provides companies with a unique opportunity.

“Silversea’s charters, incentives and event services are of the highest standard, exceeding some of the world’s most renowned five star resorts.  Due to Silversea’s all-inclusive pricing structure, event organisers can confidently plan events to suit their individual budgets.  Many event organisers who work with us are often pleased to discover that chartering one of our cruises can prove to deliver more value than a five-star resort.”

“With Silversea’s unparalleled all-inclusive value there are no surprises and no hassles, allowing you to budget with confidence and ease.  An all-inclusive Silversea voyage is often less expensive than most deluxe resorts or even mass-market cruises.”

When planning a conference or incentive, remaining within budget – even within the luxury sector – is vital.  Aboard Silversea’s boutique ships, all is included, as well as innumerate extras, such as gratuities and nightly entertainment.  See how Silversea compares to a five-star hotel or resort in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean.

Whether it is a full ship charter, top performing employees receiving an exclusive reward with an exclusive event, or a highly customised large-scale group event, Silversea’s small ships provide excellent value and a truly memorable experience.

“At Silversea, we sail to all seven corners of the world across the entire fleet.  We cater to the needs of each and every guest, whilst visiting some of the most stunning destinations, ensuring that we provide the wow factor that delegates will be speaking about for years to come,” says Christensen.

Accommodating between 100 and 540 guests, each Silversea vessel includes: all ocean-views in every suite; exquisite dining and all-inclusive amenities; expert-led shore excursions; and an assigned butler to each suite.

“Silversea’s renowned, personalised service begins long before you step aboard.  With corporate and incentive planning professionals who can provide unique and customised assistance, we ensure only smooth sailing for each and every event.  It’s perfect for companies that are looking for something different and special,” says Christensen.
