Nominations open today [Tuesday, 1 November 2022] for the first CLIA Awards in three years. There will be 18 Awards presented, including an all-new category – Cruise Line Champion, Australasia.

Billed as the cruise industry’s biggest night of celebration, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia will host its 20th Cruise Industry Awards on 11 March 2023 at Sydney’s Luna Park Big Top. The Headline Sponsor for the gala is Qatar Tourism.

With the opening of nominations, the cruise industry will honour the determination and resilience shown by the travel agent community across Australia and New Zealand.

Joel Katz, Managing Director of CLIA Australasia said this year’s awards would play a special role in recognising the tenacity of the region’s travel agents as well as their expertise and success.

“This is the perfect time to bring back The CLIAs and celebrate the stars of the Australian and New Zealand cruise community.”
