Hur­ri­cane re­sponse

Cruise Weekly - - NEWS - MD, CLIA Aus­trala­sia

THE re­cent weather-re­lated events in the Caribbean have dev­as­tated many of the com­mu­ni­ties that CLIA Cruise Lines visit.

The im­pact of these storms is still be­ing tal­lied and will linger for months to come.

It is en­cour­ag­ing, however, to see how our in­dus­try has come to­gether in the wake of these nat­u­ral dis­as­ters.

It is important to recog­nise the great work that cruise lines are do­ing to aid in res­cue ef­forts.

From de­liv­er­ing sup­plies to im­pacted ar­eas such as the Caribbean Is­lands and help­ing evac­u­ate stranded tourists and fam­i­lies, mem­ber Cruise Lines are continuing to work with of­fi­cials to best lend their sup­port.

It is of­ten said that the worst of times brings out the best in peo­ple. Plan a Cruise Month

With a whole month of cruise deals on the hori­zon, Oct is stack­ing up to be the per­fect time for your clients to plan next year’s hol­i­day and nab a bar­gain.

We’ve al­ready seen over 1,200 CLIA agents visit the PACM pages, and al­most as many vis­its to the Travel Agent Toolkit.

This year’s PACM is set to be big­gest and best ever, of­fer­ing a wide va­ri­ety of deals across a range of pop­u­lar cruise hol­i­days from cabin up­grades to dis­counts and on­board cred­its, ex­clu­sively through CLIA agents.

If you are not yet a CLIA mem­ber and would like to take part in PACM, please visit www.cruising.org.au.
