It Doesn’t Get More Exclusive Than This: Cruise Incentive For Employees

Incentive for employees up to 3250 pax - Celebrate your company's success together under the stars

Your next incentive for employees will be completely different!

An incentive for employees has many motives: challenges in the sales team, company anniversaries, appreciation of the workforce or strengthening team spirit and togetherness. As different as the reasons are, so different are the ideas, requirements, goals and wishes for the concept, the destination and the entire event management. From metropolitan and hip locations to picturesque, natural or exotic. From luxury to leisure. From breathtaking to down-to-earth. Organizations come to OceanEvent with these attributes – because we fulfil them all. For almost every idea, every group size and every destination, we have the right cruise ship for an exclusive charter – and supporting programs that no one has ever experienced before. Worldwide.

We would like to tell you about one such event in this blog: It is the incentive trip of a German insurance group that we are designing for 3,000 employees on the occasion of their upcoming company anniversary. It will be unlike anything the company has ever experienced before…

5 days at sea – and every day a highlight!

Let’s start with the ship. Because that alone can ‘rock’ a 5-day incentive for employees. Brand new, it offers the diversity of an entire city on 16 passenger decks, from accommodation to entertainment and cuisine! The 1646 stylish cabins and suites with ocean view, balcony or veranda will put a smile on your guests’ faces as soon as they wake up. It only gets brighter as the day progresses – for example in the free-floating whirlpools in the exclusive Retreat Area.

The resort ship offers an incredible 18 restaurants and therefore more culinary options than the participants in this year’s incentive can experience during their cruise. From Indian food to gluten-free, from fine dining to grill… The options for dining “around the world” are more varied than in almost any other location on land.

And then there are the public areas – for meetings, greetings, shows and party nights. The innovative indoor and outdoor areas with multi-storey galleries, themed areas, integrated cafés, bars, lounges, pools and clubs almost make you forget that there is life outside this fantastic ship!

Where can your cruise go?

Even “beyond” your ship, OceanEvent has endless other highlights in store for your participants! It all starts with planning the routing… Our Nautical Department will work with you to determine where your incentive for employees will go and which places, islands and bays you would like to explore en route. Your individual routing is based on your wishes (and what is nautically feasible) and is part of the professional overall concept that you can expect from us for your exclusive charter cruise.

In our example, Senior Charter Designer Vanessa Wagner recommended the following stops for our client’s charter cruise. Only the embarkation in Barcelona was set:

5 days at sea, according to your wishes – tell us where you want to go!

Your incentive for employees – implemented by us

OceanEvent CEO and former yacht captain Christian Muehleck takes over the nautical calculation of the distances and the coordination of the plans with the cruise department of the shipping company. Everything is then poured into a presentation that gives our customers a comprehensive feeling for their incentive on a cruise ship, from the ship to the arrival and departure to the possibilities for excursions.

With the “OK”, our Senior Charter Event Managers Simon, Claudia or Kerstin start working out the supporting programs, the entertainment, the logistics and all arrangements with the hotel managers and the crew on board. All of this, of course, in close consultation with you. You tell us what you want, we make it happen.

What makes a cruise incentive so special?

7 points worth knowing before deciding on your incentive location:

  1. A maritime incentive promises to be an absolutely unforgettable experience! Even the embarkation – the moment when your ‘crew’ boards your exclusively chartered cruise ship – is like nothing else. You will feel like the owners of a mega yacht!
  2. The opulence of cruise ships is unique. This overflowing offer of wellness, entertainment, culinary delights, luxurious accommodation and the omnipresent breathtaking view over the vast ocean simply inspires!
  3. There is not just ONE meeting place on board for you and your guests – there are an incredible number of opportunities to exchange ideas, socialize, have fun, relax, celebrate…!
  4. We are not exaggerating when we promise you one thing: With OceanEvent you will experience the planning and implementation of your incentive at the top level. Our event and nautical experts are a source of inspiration for you. At the same time, they will find the best solutions for your ideas and wishes. With the almost unlimited possibilities on board and ashore, we make so much more possible than you can imagine at the beginning of our cooperation.
  5. We can do all of this within your defined budget. A charter cruise with OceanEvent always discloses budgets and costs from the initial planning to invoicing. Transparent and predictable.
  6. The complicated logistics and meticulous planning of a cruise event are handled by experienced professionals at OceanEvent. Registrations, ship manifest, catering, decoration, social programs, entertainment – our team takes care of every last detail and ensures that all trades are seamlessly integrated. Enjoy the journey and relax and focus on your guests.
  7. Experience a new destination every day – without packing suitcases, without transfers. With nautical expertise and knowledge of the world’s most beautiful sea areas, we develop your cruise route, taking you to iconic sites, exotic islands and exclusive beach clubs.

No other location can offer you the variety – and the excitement that a maritime incentive triggers. No matter where in the world.

Sustainability in the Cruise Business

Of the 100,000 ships now sailing the world’s oceans in 2024, only 400 will be cruise ships. These shipping companies are the drivers of innovation for low-emission propulsion systems. After all, protecting the oceans is in their own best interests. Just as it is in ours. It is therefore right that cruise ships have no longer been allowed to run on environmentally harmful heavy fuel oil since 2021 (container ships, tankers and freighters are), that hybrid systems are being developed and that solar technology is increasingly being used.

Today, “no plastic” applies on board almost all cruise ships. Waste avoidance, heat recovery, biological sewage treatment plants and on-board water treatment have become standard. LED lighting, self-optimizing air conditioning technology and programmes to prevent food waste are also standard.

Expedition ships, discovery yachts and boutique ships in particular are setting a good example. Designed for remote regions such as the Antarctic or the Amazon, the focus here is on particularly environmentally friendly technology, including zero emissions. Dynamic positioning systems prevent the ships from having to anchor in sensitive ecosystems.

These are just a few examples. In the OceanEvent-Logbook you can always read about the latest developments in the cruise industry in terms of environmental protection.
