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.
CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) inducted Landry & Kling into the CLIA 2009 Hall of Fame in recognition of our pioneering role in the use of cruise ships as corporate meeting venues. Today, we are globally recognized as the premiere business-to-business resource for cruise meetings, group events at sea and ship charters.
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.”

South Florida is home to most of the world’s major cruise lines, and it’s Landry & Kling’s hometown, too. Our office is 20 minutes from PortMiami and 45 minutes from Port Everglades. So it’s easy for us to arrange your ship inspections and personally meet cruise line decision-makers to facilitate your program.
We’ve spent 30 years mastering ship charters and group cruises, so you won’t have to. Let us simplify everything and remove the “unknowns”, reduce risk, and make it easier to shift your traditional land event to a ship environment. See details.
