It’s almost that time of year again…the infamous company holiday party. As a chance for co-workers to connect outside the office and for supervisors to build team morale, organizers don’t want to disappoint. Of course, depending on the venue, some celebrations turn out to be better and more enjoyable than others. For those businesses based in Baltimore, making the most of the city’s surroundings is an obvious advantage. That means if you want to level up your gathering, you need to get near the water. In fact, it’s preferable to be on it! Here’s where City Cruises comes in. Traveling with us means guests will get up-close access to spectacular Patapsco River views, the Baltimore skyline, and local landmarks from climate-controlled interiors and open-air outdoor decks. In addition, with a range of customized amenities—from chef-prepared menus and full-bar service to all-inclusive packages—corporations can cater the occasion to whatever they need to make the festivities as fun as possible.
Corporate Holiday Party Amenities You’ll Remember
First things first, any company outing—especially a holiday one—has to provide employees with amenities that impress and demonstrate how much they are valued. Because City Cruises can design an experience that’s in line with your budget and party size, we make organization a breeze. Not only does every Baltimore holiday event come with an event manager, stewards, captain, and bartenders, but they also include tables, linens, flatware, and chairs. Freshly prepared cuisine is featured, along with a cash or hosted cocktail and wine bar. Plus, photography and customizable entertainment are available as well.
