Early-bird rate for CruiseWorld expires soon

The $125 early-bird registration rate for Travel Weekly’s CruiseWorld 2015 expires on July 15.

The industry’s top leaders from every major cruise line have committed to take the general session stage. A selection of 14 cruise ships is available for ship inspections, and more than 30 breakout sessions will be offered.

Opportunities are limited, and the ship inspections, scheduled for Nov. 10, 14 and 15 in Fort Lauderdale and Miami (both before and after CruiseWorld) are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Interested travel advisors are encouraged to complete registration by Wednesday, July 15, to take advantage of the reduced rate. After this date, the full conference access rate increases to $150.

And for those interested in applying for this year’s new STAR (Select Travel Advisor Recognition) Program, which is structured to provide enhanced event programming while offsetting some of the financial expenses incurred by travel advisers to attend professional development events, those spots are filling quickly with more than half already committed.

The core component of the STAR Program is a series of collaborative meetings scheduled between exhibiting supplier partners and prequalified, vetted travel advisors committed to business growth.

Advisors who qualify for the STAR Program and who are selected to participate will receive complimentary registration and complimentary hotel accommodations for two nights. Specific participation requirements are detailed on the CruiseWorld website.

This year’s inspection roster includes Carnival Cruise Line’s Breeze and Conquest; Celebrity Cruises’ Reflection and Silhouette; the Disney Magic; Holland America’s Eurodam, Nieuw Amsterdam and Westerdam; Princess Cruises’ Emerald Princess, Regal Princess and Royal Princess; and Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas.

CruiseWorld, which will take place Nov. 11-13 in Fort Lauderdale, includes general sessions offering industry leadership, supplier training programs, peer training and a bustling exhibitor showcase.
