In today’s hectic, stressed-out world, more and more companies are looking for ways to keep their top performers happy, and successful businesses know that one of the best ways is to reward them with a luxury experience that will leave their star performers feeling like pampered royalty.
Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises, which specialises in creating unparalleled rewards programmes and unique meetings for some of the world’s best-known companies and leading brands, has rolled out a new programme to help corporations cut costs without compromising quality. On select voyages this year, corporate and incentive groups of 10 or more suites will enjoy an unmatched array of complimentary amenities.
The reasons for selecting a Silversea cruise for corporate and incentive travel are numerous, ranging from complimentary amenities that include gourmet dining, fine wines and spirits, and 24-hour room service, to the line’s signature all-suite accommodation that features butler service. And complimentary use of the show lounge, conference room and other shipboard venues for meetings and presentations can be an enticing option for companies looking for new and unusual venues where they can host corporate events. But the top five most compelling reasons to take advantage of Silversea’s new corporate and incentive group promotion may be narrowed down to the following exceptional perks that distinguish the programme:
1) Complimentary Internet access.
2) One (1) complimentary berth for every nine (9) paid berths.
3) Complimentary upgrades for all suites from the Veranda to Deluxe Veranda category.
4) Onboard Spending Credit of US$250 per person (which can be redeemed for spa treatments, shore excursions, boutique purchases, and more).
And last, but certainly not least:
5) Silversea is an award-winning cruise company offering a highly personalised small ship experience that blends cosy sophistication, breathtaking worldwide destinations and an attentive staff ready to welcome the world’s outstanding performers and achievers.
Sean J Mahoney, Silversea’s vice president of global corporate and incentive sales, said: “With net rates starting at $2,566 per person, Silversea can accommodate a variety of corporate events with extraordinary flare and value. Our team of corporate and incentive sales experts are ready, available, and eager to assist those who recognise the potential for improving performance by providing an experience that will inspire, indulge and intrigue.”
