- Tickets to the exclusive event started at $3,000 and went as high as over $10,000 for the four-day trip
- Guests could also enjoy sunrise yoga, calligraphy workshops, 3D figure painting classes, and live demonstrations on shark tagging
- The ship did not have Wi-Fi however, and only 10 computers in the main lobby had Internet access
The event was the work of Summit Series, an organization created with the aim of attracting a younger and ‘cooler’ set of entrepreneurs
- The biggest names in tech traveled across the country from Silicon Valley earlier this month for a four-day, invite-only cruise that set sail on November 13 from Miami.
- The second-annual Summit at Sea was both a networking event and party for the 3,000 carefully curated influencers onboard. And while the lineup of impressive speakers may have been the main draw for most of those on the trip, there was also a wide variety of classes that were offered including sunrise yoga, calligraphy workshops, 3D figure painting classes, and live demonstrations and tutorials on shark tagging.
- Best of all, guests had plenty of time to enjoy this wide variety of classes as well as the panels over the course of the four days – which included a live interview with Edward Snowden – because there was no Wi-Fi access on the ship save the 10 computers in the main lobby.
