VALENCIA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2018 /CNW/ -- Luxury cruise line Cunard has been voted best in three categories in Porthole Cruise Magazine's 2018 Readers' Choice Awards: "Best Service," "Best Onboard Enrichment" and "Best World Cruise."
Porthole Cruise's 20th annual Readers' Choice Awards were determined by thousands of readers and online fans of the magazine, who voted for their favorite cruise lines and ships in 51 different categories. Winners are published in the November/December 2018 issue, which hits newsstands today, as well as online at Porthole.com.
"We are so proud to be recognized by Porthole Readers for these three awards," said Josh Leibowitz, SVP Cunard North America. "Cunard's service is truly legendary, we offer the most incredible enrichment, and by far the very best world cruise. We welcome past guests and new guests to Cunard to experience a vacation like no other."
In addition to world-class service, Cunard is known for its award-winning on board enrichment program, Insights, and for their special event cruises, in which experts and notables ranging from fashion icons to NASA astronauts lead workshops, lectures, runway shows and mingle with passengers while at sea. Cunard also took home the award for best world cruise which the company inaugurated 1922, making more trips around the world than any other cruise line in history
"I always look forward to seeing the results of our Readers' Choice Awards because our readers are discerning travelers who have stunningly high standards for every part of the cruise experience," said Bill Panoff, publisher and editor-in-chief. "For Cunard to be voted best in Service, Onboard Enrichment and World Cruise categories in the 2018 Readers' Choice Awards speaks volumes about their ability to deliver a quality voyage consistently and without compromise."
