Cruise News – September 30, 2016

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the world’s largest cruise industry trade association and leading authority of the global cruise community, has announced that October is Plan a Cruise Month. This multi-faceted campaign unites the cruise industry to help travelers discover there is a cruise vacation for every travel style and budget, and to provide tools, offers, and advice to plan and book a cruise. To celebrate, the cruise industry is kicking off #CruiseSmile social sweepstakes, which offers the chance to win a cruise each week during the month of October.

A variety of cruises are showcased at www.CruiseSmile.org under four themes: family-friendly, cultural exploration, fun in the sun, and exploring nature. With 31 unique cruises, you’ll have the chance to win a cruise experience of your choice.
