Cruise.co.uk recognises top suppliers at annual awards
Agency took cruise lines away for its yearly ski break
Cruise.co.uk, the online travel agency, has recognised its top suppliers at its annual awards.
Now in its 18th year, the conference – in Obertauern, Austria – hosted 30 senior cruise industry attendees. The awards were across 12 categories.
P&O Cruises was the standout winner on the evening, taking home four awards, including the sought-after title of ‘UK’s most popular cruise line’.
In a new edition to the event, the ‘Special Recognition Award’ was presented to Jo Rzymowska, to mark her outstanding contribution as Celebrity Cruises’ Vice President and Managing Director, EMEA, as well as her wider influence across travel, during her 18-year tenure in the industry.
Chris Gardner said: “Our relationships with the cruise lines, and how we work with them, is imperative to the success of our business. The awards allow us to celebrate our successes together.
“It’s equally as important for us to acknowledge what our customers think and to share that insight with the cruise lines. An escape at sea is a fantastic holiday option, offering unbeatable variety and value for money – by working together, we ensure guests return to cruise, year after year.”
Tony Andrews said: “The team at Cruise.co work incredibly closely with the cruise line suppliers – ensuring we’re offering our mutual customers the best service, offer and product available. Our annual conference gives us the opportunity to get everyone together and recognise those partnerships.”
Rob Scott, VP of Sales and Marketing for P&O Cruises, said: “I’m incredibly proud of the team for winning these awards. To be recognised by Cruise.co.uk and their guests is a real honour, and a reflection of the strength of our product and investment in the partnership with their team.”
Cruise.co.uk awards were also taken home by Royal Caribbean, MSC, Regent Seven Seas, Celebrity Cruises and Avalon.
