Earlier this month, Viking Cruises announced it has been honored as “Best Cruise Line for Luxury Ocean Cruises” and “Best Luxury River Cruise Company” in Luxury Travel Advisor magazine’s 2017 “Awards of Excellence.” Viking’s win marks the first time the annual Awards of Excellence have recognized the same company in both luxury ocean and river cruising categories. The awards were presented during Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit on May 22 in Washington, D.C.
“It is an honor to receive these two awards from Luxury Travel Advisor readers and their clients,” said Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking Cruises. “We set out to lead the industry with our small ship ocean cruises, just as we have done with our river cruises – so it is a particular accomplishment to become the first cruise line to win Awards of Excellence in both the luxury ocean and luxury river cruise categories. We are grateful for this recognition and appreciate that travel advisors think of Viking first when looking to deliver the best luxury ocean or river cruise experience for their clients.”
Awards of Excellence winners are determined exclusively by readers of Luxury Travel Advisor magazine, who voted for nominees selected by an invitation-only advisory board made up of influential travel advisors. Nominees represent hotels, resorts, individuals, cruise lines and professional services that excel at delivering memorable experiences, a hallmark of the luxury travel industry.
“The suppliers who have been recognized with this award have delivered optimal service to our travel advisors and their clients,” said Ruthanne Terrero, founding Editorial Director of Luxury Travel Advisor and Vice President of Editorial and Content for the Questex Travel Group. “In the competitive world of luxury travel that’s no small feat. We are very proud to bestow an award on these winners.”
