WHAT IS NACOA?
NACOA is a non-profit trade association whose members have made a significant commitment to the Cruise vacation
NACOA was founded in 1985 by a small group of cruise selling agents from across the United States who came together with
a vision to create a member driven, cruise focused trade association to address the needs and concerns of agents who specialize in
the sale of cruises.
NACOA is unique as the only trade association within the travel industry to focus its attention exclusively on
the cruise vacation product, the needs of cruise oriented agents and the cruise industry as a whole.
With a focused membership, NACOA
provides a facilitating atmosphere fostering understanding, camaraderie and networking among a select group of trusted fellow members.
the past many years, membership commitment to the principles and practices of that vision is evidenced by the fact that agents displaying
the NACOA name are recognized as cruise selling professionals.
In fact, a CLIA survey revealed that NACOA member agents are the most
productive cruise sellers in the travel industry.
