More than 1 million Aussies cruise each year

Cruise Gallery a Winner at Australian Cruise Industry Awards 2017

CLIA Cruise Award - The Cruise Gallery

The Australian Cruise Industry’s ‘night of nights’ was hosted by CLIA Australasia on Saturday the 11th of February 2017 and we are proud to announce that together with our sister brand Meridian Travel, we were awarded Agent Promotion of the Year (Australia & New Zealand). 

The award recognises our 2016 music-themed charter ‘Rockin’ The Mekong with Elvis’, which was a phenomenal success and has become the talking point of our agency. Passengers enjoyed an exclusive, luxury 14-day cruise along the Mekong, including sightseeing throughout Vietnam and Cambodia. The highlight for many was the quality entertainment provided by Australia’s most recognised Elvis tribute artist, Damian Mullin.

The annual award ceremony recognises Cruise Lines International Association member achievements from within the travel industry.
