Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has announced the addition of new Regional Cruise Line Member – French America Line, America’s premium river cruise tour. The river cruise company joins the growing number of CLIA Cruise Line Members, now totalling 62.
Cindy D’Aoust, president and CEO of CLIA, said: “We are pleased to have French America Line join our cruise community, and look forward to helping connect them with the travel agent community,”
“Their participation with CLIA helps to advance our goal to represent the entire cruise community and unify our industry.”
The world’s newest cruise line, French America Line was created to introduce a new era of premium U.S. river voyages with the launch of the elegant flagship Louisiana.
The intimate ship accommodates a maximum of 150 guests in 75 stylish suites and staterooms with unobtrusive service from a U.S. crew of 64. Inaugural sailings begin September 2016 aboard the charming ship brimming with French flair and signature experiences celebrating regional food, music and history. Engaging itineraries on America’s most iconic rivers and waterways ranging from five to 10 days will present guests with unique insights into life along the Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland and Red rivers, visiting places where larger riverboats simply cannot navigate.
