Norwegian Cruise Line has been named the World’s Leading Large Ship Cruise Line by the World Travel Awards, making the company the top global cruise line for the second consecutive year.
The honour was given at the organisation’s 20th annual Grand Final Gala, held in Doha, Qatar, and is based on votes by travel agents and consumers across the globe to recognise travel companies that provide outstanding products and customer service.
In addition to the award for top cruise line worldwide, Norwegian Cruise Line has also received the award for Europe’s Leading Cruise Line for the past six consecutive years from the World Travel Awards, and has been named Caribbean’s Leading Cruise Line.
“We are honoured that our travel partners and guests around the globe have shown their confidence in our product with this incredible award,” said Kevin Sheehan, chief executive, Norwegian Cruise Line.
“We are continuing to enhance and expand our fleet so that our guests can create a customised holiday experience, and this award shows that we are leading the industry. We’re very proud of this achievement.”
Norwegian has eight spectacular Freestyle Cruising vessels sailing the Caribbean this winter from four convenient departure ports, and will soon have a ship sailing to the Caribbean year-round from Miami when Norwegian Getaway joins the fleet in February.
The line also has two ships sailing in Europe year-round and four ships during the summer season.
The World Travel Awards has been recognising and acknowledging excellence amongst companies involved in the global travel and tourism industries since 1993, and has set high standards for all of their participants.
