CLIA Cruise Week

From 23 September - 2 October, we will celebrate CLIA Cruise Week 2022, sharing a wealth of daily content focusing on the variety and diversity of cruise holidays available – covering multiple themes such as Shore excursions and destinations, Entertainment and families, Onboard Dining, Accommodation and new ships soon to be sailing.

CLIA member agents will have access to a range of trade-specific cruise resources across the Week. We will also publish original content and plenty of cruise inspiration across our social media platforms. Cruise lines, river cruise operators and members of the CLIA team will take the campaign on the road, visiting trade partners to help amplify the cruise message.

We want to make as much noise and interest in cruise during the week as possible, so encourage you to do your own thing to help raise the profile of the Week! Use the logo in any marketing or social media posts and keep talking to your customers about all of the incredible cruise holiday options they have available.

As we head towards CLIA Cruise Week, make sure you join the “CLIA UK & Ireland Travel Agents” Facebook Group now: https://www.facebook.com/groups/cliatravelagents/
