www.cruise.co.uk is celebrating success once again at the European Travel Awards with its second consecutive win in the Specialist Cruise Agent Category.
The great and good of the European travel industry gathered on Saturday night at the Marriott Prais D’El Rey Resort, just north of Lisbon, Portugal to see the best of European travel vie for success across a number of different categories. The European Awards form part of the World Travel Awards, the most prestigious, comprehensive and sought after awards for the global travel and tourism industry. The awards celebrate excellence across customer service, innovation and creativity and are generally regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the global travel industry.
Commenting on the unique achievement, Seamus Conlon, Managing Director, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this award for the second consecutive year. We feel this recognises our superior service, higher cruise discounts, and the vast amounts of cruise related information we have on www.cruise.co.uk; over 7000 past passenger photos and over 100,000 cruise related question and answers, the complete Berlitz Guide to Cruising, online and free for all to read.
“This award comes at time when the market for cruises continues to grow and we welcome the recognition by our customers, our peers and those who use our website to research their cruise holiday. Last year alone our site had over four million visits and is now the UK’s largest cruise website for people researching a cruise. This is great example of a British company now leading the new developing online cruise market.”
www.CRUISE.co.uk has ALSO been nominated for the World Cruise Travel Agent 2009 which will be held on 8 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, when World Awards will be announced.”
