CLIA Individual Agent Membership
Individual Agent Membership provides you with the best benefits, tools and resources to navigate the cruise industry, attract more clients and increase your earnings.
When I first started as an agent, I had no travel background except my own experiences. Through CLIA I was able to take training classes focused specifically on cruising, connect with cruise lines for certifications and naturally pursue the highest certification in the industry – Elite Cruise Counsellor. These trainings and certifications have provided me with tools to present myself to my clients as an expert in the field.— Lucinda Belden, ECC , 2019 Elite Cruise Counsellor of the Year, Dream Vacations – Stingray Travel
