Planning a successful and memorable holiday party on a budget is no small feat. Expectations are high, while costs for venue, entertainment, and food can be at a premium for the holiday season. But, there are ways to save so that no one will ever notice that some expense has been spared. With over 34 years experience, Hornblower Cruises & Events specializes in unforgettable, flawless events on the water and their professional event planners are experts when it comes to making budget tradeoffs. They have several “tricks of the trade” to share:


While it is almost November and many companies have had their holiday parties booked for months, it is still not too late to book yours.

Team building is considered invaluable in developing employee interpersonal and social relationships, which is instrumental in improving company performance and achieving goals. However, few companies can schedule time for entire departments to be out of the office. Fortunately, it’s not too late to squeeze in a professionally organized day of bonding and team-building exercises before the year ends. Given that November and December seems to be when workloads level off and time is made for the year-end holiday party -- why not combine the two and take it on the water? At Hornblower Cruises & Events, we call this team building with a twist!
