The CLIA UK & Ireland National Cruise Week will take place from the 21st to the 29th of September 2013. There will be a lot special offers available during that week, from many cruise lines, so watch out for more details.
CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) is the world’s largest cruise industry trade association, with members in all parts of the globe. CLIA UK & Ireland includes the groups previously known as PSA (Passenger Shipping Association) and ACE (Association of Cruise Experts) in the UK.
As well as working with all of the major cruise lines, CLIA UK & Ireland also works tirelessly to ensure that travel agents have the best possible training in all things cruise. They do this by organising cruise conventions, ship visits, road shows, webinars, training modules (recognised by City & Guilds), and providing us with as much market data as they can.
In 2012 I won the inaugural award for ACE Homeworker of the year, and I am very proud to say that I have recently been shortlisted for the 2013 CLIA Homeworker of the Year award. The winner will be announced in Liverpool on 19th September, at the Columbus Day cruise convention.
