CLIA will hold its 2013 National Cruise Vacation Week (NCVW) from Oct. 20 to Oct. 27, 2013. The World’s Largest Cruise Sale, launched in 2011 as the successor to World’s Largest Cruise Night, is one of the most successful cruise promotions in the industry, generating millions in cruise sales and commissions. All member cruise lines of CLIA North America, as well as thousands of CLIA travel agents, work together to participate in NCVW with special offers, packages and cruise deals available only during the promotional period. NCVW offers an array of opportunities for travel agents to hold cruise events in their agency offices, at hotels, restaurants, clubs or other venues of their choosing. In addition to traditional “physical” events, agents and agencies can host “virtual” NCVW promotions featuring special offers on their websites and social media channels. New this year, CLIA will be publishing an e-book and guide for its member agencies and agents with examples, hints and tips on how to hold a successful NCVW event and make the most of this unique week. Sail on over to for more.
