October 17-23, 2011

For five years, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has held the “World’s Largest Cruise Night” each October.  This event became one of the very best days to book a cruise, with many cruise lines offering deals exclusively through travel agencies, and only for that day.  Last year, the World’s Largest Cruise Night generated an estimated 41,000 cruise bookings.

This year will be different. CLIA is launching a new, week-long promotion – National Cruise Vacation Week, or “The World’s Largest Cruise Sale,” October 17-23.  “Many of our partners tell us that one 24-hour period is not enough time to take full advantage of the tremendous consumer interest generated,” said Bob Sharak, CLIA’s executive vice president for marketing and distribution.  “That’s the rationale for National Cruise Vacation Week and we expect it be an even greater success.”

For the month of October I have a special mini-website dedicated to informing you about your cruising options with videos from the various cruise lines as well as photographs that I have personally taken at beautiful destinations around the world.

During National Cruise Vacation Week, Cruise Holidays may be able to offer discounts, shipboard credits or two-for-one specials that could help you stretch your cruise budget.  The savings might allow you to upgrade your accommodations or add a land tour before or after your cruise.  Remember, your cruise fare will include your accommodations and all of your onboard meals and snacks, as well as daytime activities and nighttime entertainment.

If you haven’t cruised before, you’ll find that a cruise ship is like a floating resort, with great service and lots of amenities.  You won’t need to worry about making dinner, finding a lively nightspot, running to make connections, packing and unpacking, or finding a place to work out.  And, you’ll see a new piece of the world every day as you visit different ports.

Bon Voyage
