1) No additional time out of the office – Typically, 4 night cruises sail from Monday to Friday, while 5-night itineraries depart on Monday and return on Saturday. Most 7-night itineraries follow a Saturday-Saturday or Sunday-Sunday pattern, so there are no additional days out of the office – just more weekend time for fun!
2) Longer cruise means greater motivation – The possibility of a 7-night all-inclusive voyage to an exotic destination is WAY more motivating than a shorter cruise with a less enticing itinerary. There’s more time to relax, explore, bond with colleagues…and meet and brainstorm.
3) The perfect blend of port days and days at sea to meet your program objectives. Most 7-night cruises include one or two days at sea – ideal for scheduling your meetings and breakout sessions without sacrificing time in port. Your meeting attendees will appreciate the mix of business and pleasure! For your incentive winners, days at sea are also great for shipboard team building events, sports pursuits, spa treatments, family time, and relaxing on the pool deck.
4) Wider variety of itineraries and destinations –Ships with 4 & 5-night itineraries sail to the Bahamas and close-to-home Caribbean islands or hop over to Bermuda from the East Coast, or visit Baja Mexico from the West Coast. But on a 7-night cruise, your choice of destinations is unlimited: sail through the Deep Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, the Mediterranean, Mexican Riviera - even Hawaii or exotic South Pacific!
5) Better choice of ships – The ship options for short cruises are limited, with very few premium or deluxe ships currently sailing with itineraries shorter than seven nights, especially during the summer. Add a few more nights and you have your choice of premium, deluxe, yacht-cruises, and sailing vessels.
