Hornblower Cruises & Events Creates Special Packages for Low Cost - High Impact Meetings

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 26, 2009) - Hornblower Cruises & Events is fighting the tide of hesitation by the corporate world, and encouraging clients to support the hospitality industry by continuing to host business meetings and continuing to reward employees with incentive travel. Newly designed packages for 2009 will make it even easier for managers looking for creative options with restrictive budgets.

Hornblower has put together cruise event packages specifically structured for meeting corporate goals and missions. Hornblower takes care of all the details so clients can focus on what is important to them. All Hornblower ports are offering special cruise packages this spring and summer to help organizations effectively and economically promote their business, connect with clients and reward hard working staff. The two to three hour packages include a cruise and meal at a very reasonable price. Past clients know that hosting an event with Hornblower has a lasting impact on clients and employees. All of Hornblower's meeting and team building cruises are designed to be just the right amount of time so planners will get the most impact out of the experience. Each scenic California port has created packages that work for the clients -- from extras like pre-boarding photos, to team building exercises -- so the right cruise package is available for every group, at any budget.

"We're working hard to make sure our clients are getting the best value possible. We know how important entertaining and rewards are to business, and we are committed to supporting businesses anyway we can," said Terry MacRae, President of Hornblower Cruises & Events. "Our mission is to support our clients and to keep our employees working. The entire hospitality industry has to come together and promote all meeting and incentive travel to ensure the viability of the millions of jobs our industry supports."

Each Hornblower port offers ways companies can give back to the community, for example in Orange County and Los Angeles, all the packages include the amount necessary to purchase credits to offset carbon used for the cruise.

Hornblower Cruises & Events has over 30 yachts in six scenic California cities. Groups from 2 to 2,200 can be accommodated in Berkeley, San Francisco, Long Beach, Marina del Rey, Newport Beach and San Diego. With a full time staff of event planners, Hornblower ensures that every last detail is in place before an event.
