About CLIA's Executive Partner Program

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) is the preeminent voice for the global cruise industry, with more than 60 member cruise lines, 13,500 travel agency members (representing more than 50,000 travel agents), and 240 executive partners. The industry serves more than 21 million passengers every year. Together, we are a global community dedicated to promoting the cruise industry and creating a safe, sustainable, and prosperous environment for the industry’s continued growth.

Cruising is the fastest-growing segment of the travel industry — with an economic impact of $100 billion annually — and there remains an enormous untapped global market for cruise vacations. Cruising is on the rise around the world and cruise lines are investing more than $8 billion in the next two years to increase their capacity to meet this demand.

CLIA’s Executive Partner Program offers an unparalleled level of engagement with this dynamic and growing industry. The Executive Partner Program delivers:

  • ACCESS to cruise line executives and exclusive industry resources and events
  • INSIGHTS into the trends and market forces that shape cruising today and will impact the industry’s future
  • OPPORTUNITIES to make connections and expand relationships with cruise decision makers
  • ADVOCACY at both a global and regional level in support of a thriving industry
