CLIA Cruise Week

We have announced a range of trade-specific cruise activities for September. This includes the annual 'CLIA Cruise Week', which this year will run from September 20-24.

All CLIA members will have access to a newly-produced guide, containing updates and factsheets with key information on cruise lines, river cruise operators and their fleets, including existing ships and those soon to launch. Below you can also find a series of guest articles focused on cruise resumption, with each written by a prominent cruise journalist. The articles will share feedback from their experiences of 'seacation' sailings and insight into what we can look forward to in the coming months.

Daily Cruise Experience Themes

From Monday 20 to Friday 24 September there will be daily themes on different elements of the cruise experience. Both CLIA and CLIA cruise lines and river cruise operators will be adding a lot of inspirational content across social media in line with these themes.

The Daily themes are:

  • Monday 20 Sept - Shore Excursions & Destination

  • Tuesday 21 Sept - Entertainment & Family Fun

  • Wednesday 22 Sept - Dining

  • Thursday 23 Sept - Onboard Accommodation

  • Friday 24 Sept - New Ships & a focus on CLIA Fleets

Engage with these Themes:

We would love for you to create your own social media posts on these themes, or comment on and share our posts - always remembering to use the hashtag #CLIACruiseWeek
