Entertainment Cruises Boston Targets Banner Year for Corporate Bookings

Expanded Fleet and Executive Leadership Contribute to Exceptional Year

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 1, 2013) -  Entertainment Cruises, Boston's premier provider of dining cruises and entertainment on the water, is celebrating a successful 35 years in business. Coming into this notable year, Entertainment Cruises, Boston expanded its fleet, grew a skilled executive team, and conducted extensive ship renovations. Subsequently, the company has seen a surge in corporate bookings, solidifying its standing as Boston's lead source of dining cruises for corporate events. The Boston location of the nation's largest dining cruise company boasts three distinct vessels that all sail from two locations in downtown Boston year round: the Odyssey, Spirit of Boston and Seaport Elite.

Kelley Yelle, general manager at Entertainment Cruises Boston, remarks that both client entertaining events and employee outings are up substantially across all three vessels this year. "I believe that our corporate clients are seeing the outstanding value in our cruises. Combining great cuisine with spectacular skyline views and live entertaining makes our venues truly unique."

The company's recent corporate success rate can be attributed in part to its ability to meet evolving customer needs and dedication to reinvent the product by consistently making improvements to dining, entertainment and service.

This spring, the Odyssey, Entertainment Cruises Boston's marquee vessel, celebrated 20 years of providing an elegant, contemporary fusion of dining and entertainment on Boston Harbor. This milestone marked the roll out of numerous upgrades to the ship, including a complete renovation of the Admiral's Lounge, transforming the space into a contemporary private venue which has already hosted many board meetings and smaller corporate gatherings this season. Furthermore, Executive Chefs of the Odyssey have partnered with Food Network's "Chopped" champion Chef Eric Levine to create an interactive culinary experience with signature food stations for groups that focus on variety, local produce and creative cuisine.

Continuing its commitment to quality, the Spirit of Boston's sky deck received a complete makeover, including a new outdoor bar with LED lights, lounge-inspired seating and contemporary décor. The Seaport Elite II, the latest addition to Entertainment Cruises Boston's fleet, offers an exclusive and private yacht experience for up to 150 guests, perfect for corporate events. The private vessel features a fantastic fusion of fine dining, wonderful views and exceptional service in a chic setting unmatched by any other vessel its size in Boston.

According to Sharon Vesey of Oracle, "The Entertainment Cruises team and the entire experience as a whole was one that I will forget! Words cannot express how wonderful the evening went -- even my boss thanked me for making this meeting a great experience for him!"

For those looking to book their next corporate event, Entertainment Cruises Boston still has prime dates available throughout the next three months for employee outings or fall conferences.
