Company Background

Co-founders Joyce Landry and Josephine Kling met at Holland America Line and discovered they shared a passion for business at sea, and a vision to become the business-to-business resource for meetings on ships. So Landry & Kling Inc. was founded in 1982 — the first company focused exclusively on meetings at sea and cruise ship charters.Landry & Kling also pioneered the use of cruise ships to provide supplemental housing as “floating hotels” for city-wide events starting with DECworld 1987 in Boston, Super Bowl 2005 in Jacksonville FL, and Summit of the Americas 2009 in Trinidad.

The really important factor has to do with the emotional investment that you took with us. The time, the personal service, the real care that went into each minute factor of this trip, separated it from the norm, and elevated it to the extraordinary.”
