It’s always a proud moment when you’re recognised for your good work, so we’re honoured to have received another award. This year, we have been named as Europe and the World’s Leading Ferry Operator at the World Travel Awards, as well as UK Ferry Operator of the Year at the TTG Awards. 

We have won the World’s Leading Ferry Operator accolade from 2011-2017. That’s an incredible 7 years running. We have been Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator for the last 6 years.

Recognised as The Oscars of the travel industry, the World Travel Awards are voted for by the public and travel professionals, so the fact that we have won these awards consistently over a number of years is no mean feat!

These awards recognise our dedication to customer service, which is why we continually look to enhance our service through customer feedback, engaging with customers via social media, or improving the facilities onboard our vessels. Simply put, we know that your trip is important to you, and we aim to make it special each and every time you sail with us.
