Norwegian Cruise Line has been named Europe’s Leading Cruise Line for the seventh consecutive year by the World Travel Awards.
The annual awards, held in Athens, Greece, recognise travel companies for delivering an outstanding customer experience and are voted for by travel agents and consumers worldwide.
Norwegian, which has been honoured with the accolade since 2008, has for the third consecutive year deployed four Freestyle Cruising vessels in Europe this summer, offering an array of sailings ranging from four to fourteen nights.
The company will deploy its largest ship, Norwegian Epic, year-round in Europe beginning next summer.
“Receiving this award for an unprecedented seventh year in a row is a testament to Norwegian’s unique cruise experience, and our wide variety of exciting itinerary options,” said Kevin Sheehan, chief executive, Norwegian Cruise Line.
“This award shows that both industry professionals and guests appreciate our world-class cruise vacation and we’re so proud to be named Europe’s Leading Cruise Line once again.”
Norwegian’s European sailings provide guests with the opportunity to visit the most beautiful places in Europe with the convenience of only unpacking once.
