The Program:

You’ve heard of speakers traveling the world to exciting destinations, eating gourmet food and meeting high-end contacts — for free — by speaking on cruise ships. “Sign me up!” you say.

It’s not as easy as contacting cruise lines offering your wealth of wisdom in exchange for a penthouse cabin for a month. There are ways to make it work as well as ways to get banned. You must abide by onboard protocols or you’ll never be invited again.

Learn the ins and outs, the do’s and don’ts to take an occasional cruise while presenting on an undulating stage!

You will learn about:

  • developing programs that are popular with cruise passengers
  • getting booked by speakers bureaus which specialize on cruises
  • getting paid to speak while cruising for free
  • becoming a popular speaker with the cruise crowd
  • selling products while speaking on cruises
  • cruise itineraries you’ll probably want to avoid
  • best places and times of the year to cruise
  • common mistakes that unsuccessful cruise speakers often make
