The Most Influential Cruise Awards Programme

Seatrade Cruise Awards is the premier award programme for the cruise industry. Established in 2007, the awards invites entrants from every corner of the industry to put their success story on the map. 

Seatrade Cruise Awards is a fundamental part of the cruise industry; your community and it has become more than just an award scheme:

  • It's a benchmark that continues to push the boundaries of the cruise industry and dares it go beyond what has been achieved before. 
  • It's a facilitator for innovation and provides a platform to identify new opportunities for industry development.
  • It's a celebration of industry success at the regional events for the industry.

Where Did It All Begin?

Seatrade Cruise Awards was first introduced in 2007 during Seatrade Europe. Intended as a platform to showcase the very best of the global cruise community and provide a benchmark for innovation, Seatrade Cruise Awards fast became both the industry's most popular scheme, but also its most influential.

We celebrate each Autumn on the ocassion of our European or Mediterranean event with a live ceremony hosted by our sponsors welcoming all our shortlisted candidates and key voices from across the cruise community.
