Do you want to hear about the safety, value and overall appeal of cruising from leading industry experts? Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the world’s largest cruise industry trade association, has launched a YouTube channel called Cruise Industry TV.
Located at youtube.com/cruiseindustrytv, the new channel provides information on the fun of cruising and cruise industry practices that are designed to keep passengers safe, happy and enjoying every minute of their vacations.
Cruise Industry TV highlights the diverse experiences and destinations the cruise industry delivers to more than 20 million passengers each year. In addition to safety practices, there’s a wealth of information on industry operations in areas such as health environmental protection.
Cruise Industry TV has three main sections: Industry Practices, Information for Cruise Vacationers, and CLIA Travel Agents.
The Information for Cruise Vacationers section has videos from a variety of cruise lines that showcase the many ways they create memorable vacations. There’s footage of ships, including dining rooms and restaurants, staterooms and promenade decks, spas and theaters – all of which can help you choose the ship you’d like to cruise on next. The videos in this section are a good way to get a feel for the style of different cruise lines.
If the cruise destination is more important to you than the ship, some of the videos provide a look at the amazing places you can visit, from the Caribbean to the South Pacific, Europe to Asia, and South America to Alaska.
The Industry Practices section has videos on important health and safety practices. Here, you can learn about health and safety regulations in the cruise industry, how crew members are trained, how ships are cleaned and what you can do to assure your own safety in the rare case of an onboard emergency. You can also find out more about how the cruise industry works to protect the environment and strives to adopt more efficient energy use practices.
The Travel Agents section is a resource for travel professionals that helps them provide vacationers with informed cruise travel guidance and advice.
Check out Cruise Industry TV, and check back often for new and updated videos. When you see a ship or destination you like, or if you just want to learn more, a Cruise Holidays personal cruise expert is just a phone call or email away.
