    Sarah Fenton from MTA-Mobile Travel Agents has been named the winner of Cruise Lines International Association’s (CLIA) Cruise Month competition.

    Sarah has won a luxury weekend for two in Sydney with tickets to the 21st Cruise Industry Awards in March thanks to her successful client event to mark Cruise Month in October.

    Sarah is a Masters-Accredited CLIA member based in the Hunter Valley of NSW and posted about her event on LinkedIn under the Cruise Month theme More Reasons to #LoveCruise.

    “What a wonderful way to celebrate CLIA in Australasia #CruiseMonth2023 this week – hosting a cruise night in Maitland with over 30 clients – some old and some new – with the expert assistance of Samantha Morgan (Norwegian Cruise Line) and Martine Nunes (née Farrugia, of Oceania Cruises) talking all things cruise and importantly how to choose the right cruise for the right client from the sometimes-overwhelming number of choices out there,” Fenton, said.

    “It was great fun and I cannot wait to do it again! I have missed hosting events like this over the last few years.”

    CLIA also ran a consumer competition during Cruise Month to highlight the benefits of booking through a travel agent.

    The consumer competition was won by Raymond in Victoria who received $1000 towards his next cruise when booked through a CLIA-certified agent.

    October’s Cruise Month initiative brought together cruise lines, travel agents and the wider CLIA community to celebrate the start of the summer cruise season and help inspire travellers to book their future cruise.

    The initiative included CLIA’s most extensive social media campaign yet, targeting cruise-friendly audiences on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
