Renowned liner company also awarded 'Best Onboard Educational Programs'
VALENCIA, Calif., Nov. 13 /CNW/ -- Confirming Cunard Line's dominance in
the world cruising category, the well-traveled readers of Porthole Cruise
magazine have named Cunard operator of the "Best World Cruise Itineraries" for
the fifth consecutive year. The Line was also awarded "Best Onboard
Educational Programs" in the magazine's annual Readers' Choice Survey, which
appears in the December 2007 issue.
"Few awards are as gratifying as those that come from seasoned
travellers," said Carol Marlow, president of Cunard Line. "To be recognized
as offering the best world cruise itineraries and most meaningful educational
programmes confirms that we are delivering compelling experiences that exceed
the expectations of our guests while upholding a cherished Cunard legacy."
"Cunard Line exudes elegance and style," said Bill Panoff, publisher and
editor-in-chief of Porthole Cruise Magazine. "Our sophisticated readers have
applauded the Line by voting it 'best' in two Readers' Choice Awards
categories, and I couldn't agree more."
World cruising is an 85-year-old tradition at Cunard, dating back to
Laconia, which made the first passenger circumnavigation of the globe in 1922.
In 2008, two Cunard ocean liners will offer World Cruises: Queen Victoria
will embark on Pathway to the Explorers, her maiden 105-day World Cruise, and
Queen Elizabeth 2 will embark on her 26th and final World Cruise, the 90-day
South America, Pacific & Far East Odyssey.
