Event Highlights

Opportunity to interact and meet with key shipboard and shoreside executives who will share operational insights into executing meaningful and memorable experiences for the millions of guests who sail annually onboard Royal Caribbean, with a focus on meetings and incentives and the differences between operating an "event at sea" versus at a hotel/resort.

  • Gain access to one of the country’s largest entertainment production studios

  • High-level education in the areas of shipboard operations includes culinary event management, entertainment production, safety/security/medical/environmental, event production, sustainability, team building events and more.
