CLIA is the Official trade organization of the cruise industry.  There are many travel industry organizations, but when it comes to the cruise industry, this is the one that the others confer with and align themselves with.   Our accreditation level of ACC (Accredited Cruise Counsellor) is something we feel great pride in achieving.  And it is only the first of three levels we strive for in the cruise travel industry.

CLIA is consistently rated the most effective travel association in terms of overall support of the travel agency community, the value for the money, and the quality of its training programs. For example, CLIA's most comprehensive training is the Cruise Counsellor Certification Program, which requires agents to successfully complete a number of compulsory training courses and exams, attend cruise conferences and conduct ship inspections, among other things. CLIA also offers Management and Sales Institutes, classroom training and training videos.
