Crystal Cruises has rejoined Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) as an ocean-going cruise line member. The cruise line was previously part of CLIA before its collapse earlier this year, but is in the process of being relaunched under new owner operators, Abercrombie & Kent.
“We are honoured to join Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and fully participate in their important work to promote the work of the industry and provide a unified voice across the entire global cruise community,” said Jack Anderson, President of Crystal Cruises.
Anderson applauded MSC Cruises’ Pierfrancesco Vago, CLIA Chairman and Kelly Craighead, CLIA’s President & CEO for their “leadership, vision, and extraordinary efforts on behalf of the cruise industry.”
As a membership organisation, CLIA is dedicated to adding and creating value for its members, which is delivered through a range of advocacy efforts, education, and stakeholder engagement on a local, national, and global scale.
“Our commitment to building a better future extends well beyond minimising environmental impacts, it also includes harnessing the power of travel to contribute to health and well-being of people and places by creating positive travel experiences that inspire lifelong cruisers and generations of new to cruise travellers to sail responsibly,” said Kelly Craighead, President, and CEO of Cruise Lines International Association.
“Cruising has a good story to tell—and will have even more examples and positive stories to share as a result of Crystal Cruises being part of the CLIA membership fleet.”
