Norwegian Cruise Line has been named as the Caribbean’s Leading Cruise Line by the World Travel Awards.

The 20th annual awards, held on September 14th in Antigua, bestow the world’s top travel companies with honours for outstanding products and services and are voted on by travel professionals and consumers from around the globe. 

Norwegian, which has been voted Europe’s Leading Cruise Line for six consecutive years as well as the World’s Leading Large Ship Cruise Line, 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 2014.

“It is such an honour to receive this award from travel partners and consumers worldwide,” said Kevin Sheehan, chief executive, Norwegian Cruise Line.

“As we prepare to introduce Norwegian Getaway to the Caribbean in February, this prestigious designation makes us very proud and I know that our Caribbean experience will be enhanced even more by this incredible new ship.”

Norwegian’s largest ship to date, Norwegian Epic, sails to the sunny Eastern Caribbean destinations on seven-day cruises from Miami starting November 2nd, 2013.
