Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has released its cruisExcellence 2016 schedule that kicks off on Saturday, February 27 in Orlando, FL, with a one-day program.

CLIA’s cruisExcellence is a regional training program with live, instructor-led training, virtual ship inspections and informative workshops. Attendees also have the opportunity to win valuable prizes from cruise lines, CLIA and industry partners.
