Corporation hosts first UK Cruise Awards in three years

Carnival UK paid homage to its trade partners this week, at its annual UK Cruise Awards.

The event, which hasn’t been held for three years because the pandemic, recognises agents for their business and loyalty to six Carnival Corporation & PLC brands – Carnival Cruise Line, Cunard, Holland America Line, P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises, and Seabourn.

More than 200 travel partners attended the ceremony, which was held at Madame Tussauds in London. The awards were hosted by TV presenter Mark Durden-Smith.

Each brand gave two awards, the first for ‘Partnership Development’ and the second for ‘Outstanding Contribution’.

In addition, four multi-brand awards were given for ‘Innovative Marketing Campaign’, ‘Outstanding Customer Care’, ‘Rising Star’, and ‘Outstanding Contribution’.

Dame Irene Hays was honoured with ‘Outstanding Contribution’ for her achievements and dedication in supporting all six brands.
