Dubrovnik Wins Europe’s Leading Cruise Destination Award at World Travel Awards 2024

As part of the prestigious World Travel Awards ceremony 2024, held on March 6th in Berlin, Dubrovnik earned recognition in the category of Europe’s Leading Cruise Destination 2024.

Following three awards received at the World Travel Awards in 2023, Dubrovnik has once again been declared the leading European cruising destination. The city first won this award in 2021, followed by another win in 2023.
Dubrovnik secured the award for Europe’s leading cruising destination among 10 other cities, including Athens, Cannes, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Lisbon, Oslo, Venice, and three Turkish cities - Bodrum, Izmir, and Kuşadası. Voting for the European categories of the World Travel Awards lasted until February 4th, 2024, and was conducted by tourism professionals, media, and tourist consumers.

It’s worth mentioning that last year, Dubrovnik won three awards at the World Travel Awards; in September, it was declared the Leading European Cruise Destination in Georgia, as well as the Leading Coastal City Destination in Europe, while in December, it was named the Leading World Coastal City Destination at the final ceremony in Dubai.

The World Travel Awards is a prestigious travel and tourism awards program, and winning in this category is recognized as the gold standard worldwide. This award serves as an incentive for the destination and all stakeholders to continue strategic activities that further strengthen Dubrovnik’s position as a globally recognized promoter of responsible destination management on the path to sustainable development.
