Ian Warren was both surprised and honoured to be announced as the winner of the CLIA Cruise Master Award for 2018, at the prestigious Agent Achievement Awards in London on 12th July 2018. The annual awards ceremony was hosted by Travel Weekly at a glittering event in the Park Plaza Westminster Hotel.
