- Rising Star Award – Awarded to an individual travel agent who has significantly impacted the agent landscape through contributions to their agency, as well as demonstrated their commitment to professional development, with a maximum of three years cruise industry experience.
- Lifetime Achievement Award (Hall of Fame) – Awarded to an individual from any aspect of the cruise industry who is an advocate for cruise travel and has made remarkable positive contributions to the cruise industry.
“CLIA takes great pride in celebrating and recognizing our members who have made a significant impact in the cruise industry,” said CLIA presdient Cindy D’Aoust. “Our refreshed awards program gives CLIA members an even greater opportunity to select the award recipients and we can’t wait to see who will be honored this year.”
