Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has launched its first ever new-to-expedition cruise guide for agents. The guide was officially launched at today's (April 22) CLIA Virtual Luxury & Expedition Showcase.
The guide covers popular expedition destinations such as:
The guide outlines the key aspects of an expedition cruise such as ship specifics, onboard activities and entertainment, shore excursions and the main differences from ocean and river cruising.
Also included is destination-specific information including an overview of the area, port guides, and top tips for visitors on popular local attractions, sites of interest and weather advice.
Andy Harmer, Managing Director of CLIA UK & Ireland said: 'Expedition sailings are a fantastic way to explore off the beaten track destinations and we're expecting demand to increase as international travel continues to open up. Our guide is intended to be a one-stop-shop for agents who are looking to continue selling these sailings, or start capturing a growing new market.
'With more people looking to tick off their post-lockdown bucket list, agents should expect more expedition cruise-related enquiries, meaning now is the ideal time to familiarise yourself with everything they have to offer.'
The guide is available for CLIA members from cruising.org
