Cruise Conferences and Events - Cost Comparison

As cruise ships are not subject to the same operational costs as their land based counterparts, they are able to offer overall a stronger; more competitive priced alternative. And while holding a conference at sea may not be a consideration now, here is a price comparison based on a conference for 20 delegates, based on a 3 night stay, and suggested conference itinerary.
