economic report 17

The Report shows how
Europe’s cruise
industry provides
a vital channel
to new economic
opportunities within
the travel and
tourism industry.




The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) is the world's largest cruise industry trade association. CLIA Europe promotes the interests of cruise ship operators within Europe, liaising closely with the EU Institutions. CLIA Europe also promotes cruising to a wider public audience to encourage expansion of the European cruise market and works closely with a range of other stakeholders, including the wider shipping industry, cruise ports, and travel agents.

In addition to the CLIA Europe offices in Brussels, CLIA has representations in a number of national markets across Europe. These national chapters provide our members with platforms to work on and solve issues at the local and national levels. They also constitute an integral part of CLIA’s multilevel approach to the representation of our members’ interests.

Beyond Europe, CLIA is also present in North and South America, Asia, and Australasia. Across the world, CLIA represents the interests of cruise lines, travel agents, port authorities and destinations, and various industry business partners before regulatory and legislative policy makers.
