Team-Building On A Cruise Ship

ocania-team-building-at-sea

How about team-building on a cruise ship? Hey wait a second… how about having your incentive and/or meeting at sea? (Note… they do stop at land too)… so here are some ideas (but in my words) shared by Shari Wallack, President of Buy-The-Sea … and for those of you who don’t know Shari, she DEFINITELY knows what she is talking about…

Yes, you’ve got the normal ship-wide scavenger hunts, trivia contests, karaoke sing-offs and competitive sporting events using the basketball court, rock climbing wall, ping-pong tables and yes, the iconic shuffle board courts.  Shuffle-Board? Sounds…great. But these things have evolved way past your grandma’s team building fun…

Shari recommends Oceania cooking studios found onboard the ship’s Marina and Riviera.  This interactive event includes “adventure” shopping in the local markets at ports of call to collect the ingredients (“excuse me… is your iguana fresh?”) and then returning to the, hands-on, fully-stocked, professionally-staffed, on-board cooking school (maximum 24 guests at a time). The chef-guided process is completely collaborative and of course ends with a (hopefully) gourmet meal and champagne all around.
