Why Your Next Work Event Would Be Better on a Cruise
Work mixers are a great way to get to know your coworkers outside of the confines of the office. Company culture is an important part of keeping a positive, upbeat work environment and will help employees enjoy coming to work on a daily basis. If you’re looking for a new way to break the barrier of cubicle tension, consider a Chicago River cruise!
This is a change of pace from a cookie-cutter happy hour and provides a unique, exciting opportunity for employees. From singing your favorite karaoke song surrounded by coworkers to hiring hula dancers for some extra entertainment to a mini line-dancing lesson, the opportunities to have fun are endless. If you can dream it, we can make it happen.
Take in Chicago From a Different Point of View
Once you step foot on one of the 6 unique vessels within our fleet, you’ll immediately see the city from a different viewpoint. Your office may provide a bird’s-eye view of the city, but seeing the Windy City from the Chicago River or Lake Michigan is a breathtaking change of pace. Even if you’ve been on the water before, experiencing it with your coworkers will allow you to bond in a different way. Set your eyes on some of the tallest buildings that the Chicago skyline has to offer or see the full scope of the Windy City skyline as the sun goes down. Snap photos, enjoy a drink and talk about anything other than the stress of work.
Entertainment for All
The vessel itself has a lot of space that allows for fun, customizable events that you and your coworkers can enjoy! Besides the views, enjoy a live band of your choosing, rock out to a local DJ, or let your guard down by singing your favorite karaoke song surrounded by your coworkers. We’ve hosted events that have included entertainment from hula dancers to tailored line-dancing lessons! If you can think it, we can make it happen!
