CLIA Cruise Week

From 20-24 September we ran a week of trade-specific activities providing updated information to our CLIA travel agents.

We also posted daily content across our social media channels focusing on the themes of:

  • Shore excursions and destinations
  • Entertainment and families
  • Dining
  • Onboard Accommodation
  • New ships for 2022

You can search our content or find out how our agents got involved using #CLIACruiseWeek.

In addition, we published a series of articles by prominent cruise journalists directly sharing their experience of being back on board and cruising after such a long break.
