PALM BEACH, Fla. & SALEM, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Margaritaville at Sea, the floating island vacation, and CTM Group Inc. (“CTM”), a leading global provider of managed entertainment and souvenir solutions for tourist destinations and other high-traffic venues, today announced the launch of a new, one-of-a-kind arcade and gaming experience for cruise guests onboard the Margaritaville at Sea Paradise, starting on sailings this August.
With 10 passenger decks and 658 cabins in various stateroom categories, the Margaritaville at Sea Paradise offers the fun, escapism, and state of mind synonymous with the Margaritaville lifestyle. The new CTM-installed gaming and entertainment experience will feature the latest games, simulators, and other attractions, all uniquely catering to cruise guests. Installations will be spread throughout the ship, including outside the casino and a signature arcade room on the top deck, offering another attraction for families traveling with children. Planned prizes will include Margaritaville-branded merchandise and specialty items appealing to guests of all ages.
The Margaritaville at Sea Paradise installation will continue to expand the partnership between the two brands, building on existing collaborations such as the CTM gaming and arcade equipment at Margaritaville Lake Resort in Lake Conroe, Texas.
“Bringing the CTM arcade experience to Margaritaville at Sea Paradise will provide guests with another new and exciting amenity to enjoy onboard,” said Terry Smith, Director of Onboard Revenue at Margaritaville at Sea. “We’ve already seen firsthand how CTM shares our passion and commitment to elevating the guest experience. We look forward to future opportunities to work together.”
“This partnership with Margaritaville at Sea is an important first venture to introduce our leading games and installations to the cruise ship traveler,” said David Bishop, Chief Executive Officer of CTM. “We are excited to collaborate with such a well-known brand and strong team to delight guests through this unique experience and lay the foundation for our shared growth with Margaritaville at Sea.”
Over the coming months, Margaritaville at Sea and CTM expect to introduce a cashless, proprietary payment system for cruise guests, which will enable payment for arcade experiences by room key.
