Overall winners to be named at industry night of nights in Sydney next month.

Cruise Lines International Association has just released details of the 71 finalists in the 18th annual Cruise Industry Awards.

This year the awards are being conducted under a revamped judging process, with more than 500 submissions considered in the 12 categories open for nomination.

CLIA Australasia Managing Director, Joel Katz, said the standard of entries this year had been particularly high, adding: "the one thing that has become clear from submissions this year is that travel agents are more engaged and dedicated than ever before".
