Entertainment was once just considered a cost for the cruise lines, but today it is an essential part of each cruise brand’s identity. Cruise lines are spending millions of dollars to reimagine their entertainment experiences not only for their new builds, but for their refurbishments and private islands. Today guests can find ziplines, race & bumper cars, water slides, ice rinks, bowling alleys and more; without ever leaving the ship.

It’s a competitive world! What are ports doing to keep up? We’ll talk with a range of port and entertainment experts to get their insight into the future. They’ll share tips; both big and small on what can be done in the short-term and the long- term to grow your port entertainment value. We’ll talk about how to increase guest satisfaction ratings by integrating entertainment components into your destination? Be prepared for a new generation of cruise guests.
