CLIA Announces Return of Travel Agent Summer School Series

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has confirmed its ‘summer school’ series will return in July and August.  

The hour-long, trade-friendly virtual classroom sessions each comprise presentations from representatives of four cruise lines. The representatives will provide a 15-minute product update or training brief covering their ocean, river, luxury or expedition brand.

The free-of-charge sessions are held live, so the trade has access to the latest information, and can ask questions in real time. Summer school follows the running of a series of June webinars that included two on river cruise and three on expedition cruise.

Summer school begins on July 13 at 9.30am. Sessions will then take place on consecutive Thursdays, all from 9.30am, until the end of August. The full line-up is:

July 13, Windstar Cruises, A-ROSA, Explora Journeys and MSC Cruises

July 20, Quark Expeditions, Oceania Cruises, Royal Caribbean and APT

July 27, Celestyal, Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, Swan Hellenic and AmaWaterways

August 3, Avalon Waterways, Holland America Line, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises and Celebrity Cruises

August 10, CroisiEurope Cruises, Seabourn, Amadeus River Cruises and Carnival Cruise Line

August 17, Scenic & Emerald Cruises, AE Expeditions, Princess Cruises and nicko cruises

August 24, Virgin Voyages, Tauck, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises and Riverside Luxury Cruises

Andy Harmer, CLIA UK and Ireland director, said: “Our summer school has been particularly well-received by the trade since its return, so we’re pleased to welcome it back by popular demand for another year. These interactive sessions will be the go-to summer event for agents looking to get the very latest cruise information direct from the lines themselves.”
