Cruise Lines International Association awarded Travel Leaders Network with its 2017 Travel Agency Innovator Award, recognizing the company for innovation in their approach to promoting cruise travel and growing their cruise travel sales.

The company was recognized for providing its agent members with technology tools like AgentMate, a fully-integrated CRM system, the CruisePRO booking system, and its lead generation tool, Agent Profiler.
