Having a meeting or convention on a cruise ship can offer several advantages compared to hosting it in a traditional venue on land. Here are some of the advantages:

It's important to note that while cruise ship conventions offer several advantages, there may also be some considerations to keep in mind, such as potential limitations on space, the need for advance planning and coordination with the cruise line, and potential challenges related to seasickness for some attendees.
Smart Traveler, through its cruise divisions, has conducted over 300 convention cruises including 6 whole ship charters. An experienced agent is key when considering a convention at sea – as minute details matter exponentially more than on land, where replacements for damaged or forgotten convention necessities can be found much more easily! Our Meetings & Incentives team has 40+ years of experience booking cruise groups of all sizes! Planning conventions of 100-1,000 attendees or more persons should begin at least 12 months in advance, and ship charters for up to 6,000 attendees require at least 18-24 months lead time. In any case, for groups of 16-6,000, we can handle it all!
