Micro-Cruising Take Macro View to Join CLIA Australasia

September 19, 2013 Association No Comments Email Email

Cruise Lines International Association Australasia (CLIA Australasia) has announced a new associate member, with Australia’s newest small-ship cruising wholesaler Micro-Cruising joining the body.

Specialising in niche cruises across the globe, Micro-Cruising offers holidays on ships with a capacity of around 100 passengers or fewer. Small Ship Cruising in Gorge Harbour British Columbia

CLIA Australasia General Manager Brett Jardine said Micro-Cruising’s associate membership would help raise agent and consumer awareness about the wide array of cruises now available to holidaymakers.

“As more and more styles of cruising become accessible, it’s important that we ensure agents have a good understanding of the fantastic range of ships and destinations on offer for their clients,” Mr Jardine said.

Micro-Cruising’s Managing Director Nicola Caygill said her company, which presently offers more than 300 unique itineraries to 80 destinations, aimed to solidify its relationship with the cruise trade through its CLIA membership.

“We are very keen to educate the cruise-focussed travel trade on less traditional options available to their clients,” Ms Caygill said.

“To that end, we’ll be conducting online training for CLIA-registered agents to open their eyes to a plethora of small ship cruising possibilities.”
