The XI Edition of the Cruise Excellence Awards Gala will become Cartagena the cruise capital once again

February 10, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

The Cruise Excellence Awards will take place on the 15th February in Cartagena for the third consecutive year. This will be the XI Edition.
The ceremony will bring together, as previously, the main executives of cruise lines, cruise operators, ship agents, ports and destinations, travel agents, press, service providers and professionals.

The Cruise Excellence Awards are the result of a macro survey given to national cruise passengers. This fact gives a special value to the results.

More than 300 attendees will fill the auditorium of the Paraninfo and enjoy a exclusive gala on its eleventh edition. Previous editions were held in Barcelona, Malaga, Bilbao and Palma de Majorca.

This edition is promoted by Cartagena Port Authority and Cartagena City Council and sponsored by Official Murcia Region Tourist Site, the Asociación de Empresarios de Actividades Marítimas (ASEAM) de Cartagena, touristic train Almirante, Sureste Incoming, Cruises Atlantic Islands, Agencia Marítima Blazquez Cruises, and Cruises Friend Shop

The city of Cartagena is enjoying significant development within the sector, due to the consolidation of the Port of Cartagena as one of the Spanish destinations that have seen rapid growth in recent years. In 2016, Cartagena debuted as a cruise embarkation port and in 2017 inaugurated a new access to the cruise terminal that has been expanded and remodeled. For 2018 there are 140 cruise calls expected and more than 200.000 passengers.

The winners will be awarded in these categories:

  • Best Spanish Port
  • Best Crew
  • Best Popular Cruise Line
  • Best Entertainment  Onboard
  • Best Value for Money Cruise Line
  • Best Premium Cruise Line
  • Best Luxury Cruise Line
  • Best Cruise Ship on the Mediterranean
  • Best Cruise Ship on the Northern Europe
  • Best Consumer Brand Recognition
  • Best River Company
  • Best Cruise Line for the First Cruise

The Cruise Excellence Awards, whose first edition was held in 2008 in Barcelona, is a brand of CruisesNews Media Group, organizer of the International Cruise Summit in Madrid and editor of CruisesNews and TopRiver magazines.
