If you know 10 or more people who are in a given disciple that has to have annual training for some skill set AND they like to cruise, you may be able to organize an educational cruise for them. Many ships and travel agents can get you lined up. If you get 10 to pay at a discounted rate, YOU travel for free. On board, conference areas are set aside for your daily instruction.
The rest of the day is play time. This can be real estate, medical, sales, writing or whatever. The cruise may even be tax deductible as an educational expense for the attendees. Check with your tax preparer – no advice is given here.
The most popular area for these types of cruises are the inexpensive ones to the Mexican Rivera or Alaska. Great venues with a short week of fun. Make sure you are comfortable with the whole process; you don’t want to be audited by the IRS. It’s really very common and you can even invite guest instructors to come along…another 10 bookings gets you another room. If this sounds attractive, here is a great travel agency that is very well versed on the process. Give them a shout to check out the process.
