While we’re still not cruising yet, right now is the perfect time to plan your 2022 or 2023 cruise retreat. And while you’re at it, remember to add in some fun! Not everything during your retreat needs to be business business business all the time. How can you liven up your cruise retreat programming–check out these ideas:
1. Scavenger Hunt
Not only a fun activity, but also helps your cruisers get their bearings of the ship. And who doesn’t love some friendly competition?
2. Dinner and Theater
Your standard meals are included with your cruise fare, but why don’t you dress up the night by collectively going to the main theater event together. Or, really step it up and enjoy dinner in one of the specialty restaurants AND a night at the thea-ta.
3. Attend a Class
Cruise lines have classes in all sorts of activities throughout the day. Popular options include wine and spirits, sushi making, cupcake decorating, towel animal folding, crafting, gemology, and more!
4. Group Fitness
If your group is more into wellness, you could coordinate a private fitness session together, or collectively head up to one of the planned fitness center events. Sunrise yoga on the top deck, or a walk-a-thon on the jogging track are also great options.
These are just a few of the ideas I’ve come up with as part of Captivate in my Five C’s to Cruise Retreat Planning. What other ideas can you think up?
