Cruising to success for the fifth consecutive year, DFDS Seaways has been named Europe’s Leading Long Sea Ferry Operator 2011 by The World Travel Awards.

The cruise ferry operator has successfully won the ‘Oscar’ of the travel industry for five years in a row, championing its commitment to excellent customer service and onboard experience on its Newcastle to Holland and Harwich to Denmark routes.

He says: “This is a phenomenal success for the whole team and demonstrates just how dedicated we are to maintaining a first class product range and travel experience. To be voted for by fellow travel professionals and consumers alike makes it very prestigious honour indeed.”
