CLIA Launches New Improved WebsiteJanuary 6, 2010 By: David Eisen
When you access www.cruising.org, you'll be in for a surprise. Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has introduced a new and improved website designed to help travel agents and consumers navigate with ease. The site’s “Agency/Agent” and “Vacation/Consumer” sections have been completely redesigned, with a revamped “Regulatory” section to follow.
“It is no secret that travel agents and consumers increasingly turn to the Internet and websites for quick access to information,” said Jim Smith, CTIE, CLIA's director of marketing. "We are pleased to introduce our re-designed website that is the direct result of listening to what our members requested."
The new CLIA site features greater visual appeal, reorganized and newly displayed content and enhanced navigation capabilities designed to maximize efficiency. The new look includes a redesigned “gateway” page, and in the Vacations section, a reformatted Travel Agency Finder including a better "Cruise Expert Locator," which identifies CLIA agents and their respective certification level by zip code.
