CLIA UK & Ireland is introducing its first Premium & Luxury Expo when more than 80 delegates will have the opportunity to visit three ships over two days, with each offering a very different style of cruising and experience.


The organisation will be announcing details of the two day event, which will take place in Dover, at this week’s Selling Cruise Conference.

The Expo will feature business sessions, networking opportunities with cruise lines and businesses, a celebratory dinner and visits to Crystal Symphony, Holland America Line’s Ryndam and SeaDream Yacht Club’s SeaDream 1.

CLIA UK & Ireland director Andy Harmer said: “Travel agents will have the rare opportunity to see, in one place, three very different ships within the premium and luxury range, ships which range in size from just 112 passengers to 1,260.”

He continued “By their nature, the smaller ships within the premium and luxury sector are able to visit different destinations in spectacular locations around the world.  The on board service is second to none and when compared with land based holidays, they just can’t be beaten.  We want delegates to leave knowing they can confidently sell this sector with many of their customers being potential premium and luxury passengers.”    

The Expo is taking place on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 August in Dover.
