There is no doubt that Aus­tralians love cruis­ing. Ac­cord­ing to the Cruise Line In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion (CLIA),

1.34 mil­lion Aussies set sail in 2017, with that num­ber sure to rise in 2018. Glob­ally, 28 mil­lion peo­ple are ex­pected to sail the high seas or rivers of the world this year, and by 2028, that num­ber is pro­jected to be 40 mil­lion. Ship builders can hardly keep up with de­mand, with 108 ships now un­der con­struc­tion, 30 of which are ex­pe­di­tion ships to take cruis­ers ex­plor­ing far-flung des­ti­na­tions and places that the huge ships can­not ac­cess. Oc­to­ber is the month to choose your cruise, with CLIA as­sist­ing its travel agent mem­bers by pro­vid­ing them with a Travel Agent Tool­kit to en­sure they know ev­ery­thing they need to know about the var­i­ous cruise types, des­ti­na­tions and ships. If you are con­sid­er­ing a cruise in 2019, make sure you go to a travel agent who is a mem­ber of CLIA, the world’s largest cruise in­dus­try trade as­so­ci­a­tion and the lead­ing au­thor­ity on the global cruise com­mu­nity. cruis­
