Get your head around cruising’s tech revolution with CLIA’s new webinar series

The newest technological advances to reshape cruising will take centre stage later this month in a new webinar series from Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia.

From new onboard experiences to the smart systems guiding guest health and safety, cruise lines will explain the digital innovations that are helping to make life at sea more seamless and engaging.

Six sessions will be held between 30 November and 9 December, each offering insight from a different CLIA member cruise line.

Topics will include the latest smartphone apps, wearable devices, digital services, smart-room technologies, artificial intelligence, and the latest technology in onboard entertainment, among others.

CLIA Australasia’s director of membership and events, Marita Nosic, said the webinars would help agents understand how technology is enhancing their clients’ holidays at sea.

“Cruising technology is rapidly changing the way people plan and enjoy their cruise, and it means things are often becoming easier rather than more complicated,” Nosic said.

“Our webinars are designed to show how you can help clients get the most of their cruise through technology and how agents can use these new opportunities to secure bookings.”

The webinars are free to all CLIA Australasia members, including those who have newly signed up for 2022.

Participating cruise lines include Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean, MSC Cruises, Virgin Voyages, Celebrity Cruises, and Carnival Cruise Line.
