Planning an event, whether it’s a social or corporate one, for a cruise can take a lot of work. You want it to be a memorable, and stress-free experience. NEW has a wealth of experience when it comes to event planning.

We take a look at a few things that you should consider when planning a harbour cruise event for your friends and work colleagues.

The Size of Your Group

You’ll need to be fully aware of the numbers you expect to attend this cruise event. Unlike any ordinary event, cruises and boats can’t expand if you find yourself having more people than you expected to attend for it.

Cruises come in a variety of sizes, so when booking your harbour cruise, make sure you have an idea of who’s going to be attending and make sure that number is never exceeded.

Choosing The Right Menu

An event can certainly leave a bad taste in people’s mouths if the food options aren’t up to scratch, quite literally! Choosing the right food can be a tough task because of the expectations that revolve around the food on offer.

Your guests will get hungry. Look at the experience of vendors, the types of menus available and get others to involve so you can gauge at their opinions too. Read more.

Plan Your Event Costs

Make sure you don’t overspend your budget. When it comes to hiring a cruise for the event, check to see what’s included in the package. Fees should usually include marine crew and waiters to help the event running smoothly.

It’s usual for extras to be added on too, such as lightning and microphones. Always plan your budget and make sure that you can afford to put on the best possible harbour cruise for your guests to enjoy and remember.
