Australian Cruisers Get Your Plan A Cruise Month Grove On !

For those of you who love cruising [who doesn’t right] October is a great month to start looking around for the best cruising deals out there.

October starts the peak Australian Cruising Season, with many Australians having already booked their cruises for this Australian cruising season and they are in the process of booking their cruises for next year.

Many of us use local travel agents which is a great way to book, as travel agents play a very important role in not only in the Australian cruise industry but also internationally.

The fact is 80% of Australians plan and book a cruising holiday with a travel agent.

CLIA which stands for Cruise Lines International Association for those of you who don’t know, have set out with a global campaign called Plan A Cruise Month.

The campaign is to create the awareness and a platform where travel agents and cruise lines and the industry partners can showcase what a cruising holiday offers today and into the future.

It is also being able to show that a cruise holiday is for everyone and it can suit all types of budgets.

Plan A Cruise Month is celebrated throughout Australasia, North America and Europe.

While the efforts focus on consumer awareness of cruise travel, it is also designed to highlight CLIA Certified Travel Agents as the best way to book a cruise holiday.

This initiative also provides CLIA Travel Agents with the tools and resources they need to promote booking cruise travel to new and current clients, said a spokesperson from the CLIA.

So how can you get a great deal through Plan A Cruise Month??

My advice is to keep checking with the travel agents that are indorsed by CLIA, over the next four weeks.

You never know what sort of deal might pop up! Who knows it might be too good to refuse. Please be mindful of when you do book to make sure of the deposit and final payment terms and conditions.

Each week has been set aside for different styles of cruising, these are as follows:

1. 04th -09th October – Luxury & Expedition Cruising.
2. 10th -16th October – River Cruising.
3. 17th -23rd October - Cruising From Australia.
4. 24th -31 October - International Cruising.

Cruise The Seas Media can also reveal that Australia’s largest cruise operator Carnival Australia is marking the region’s first Plan A Cruise Month with scores of great deals on offer throughout October.

Each of the cruise operator’s seven lines – P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Cunard, P&O Cruises World Cruising and Seabourn – is offering deals and savings to celebrate Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia’s inaugural month-long promotion including:
