Boston, MA & Vancouver, B.C., December 2019 -- Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours took home a number of top awards and has been named as one of the world’s top cruise lines in Cruise Critic’s annual Editors’ Pick awards in USA & Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. The Scenic Group was also recognized globally as one of the best cruise lines in the world, winning the Best New Luxury Ship award across all three geographic locations.
Cruise Critic®, the world's largest cruise reviews site and online cruise community, began their award program 12 years ago and, instead of following the pattern of many award programs (what amounts to popularity contest), use a global panel of impartial cruise experts from Cruise Critic. These experts, with hundreds of cruises under their collective belts, highlight the best ocean, river and luxury cruise lines for USA & Canada travelers, across dozens of categories.
Jayne O’Brien, Managing Director, Scenic USA offered, “We work every year to deliver to our guests the best experiences and lifetime memories – and always strive to keep improving on the prior year’s results. Recognition on this forum at a global level is a testament not only to the strength of our brand across the world but that our attention to the quality of our product and the delivery of excellence is paying off for our guests and us.”
Comments from the judges in awarding Scenic Eclipse the top prize included the following, “Cruisers might book Scenic Eclipse because it's equipped with two helicopters and a six-person submarine, but they'll come back because of the 228-passenger ship's chic design, generously sized suites and incredible dining offerings. Australian company Scenic pulled out all the stops with its first ocean ship, which seamlessly combines luxury and soft-adventure travel to exotic destinations, including the Arctic and Antarctica.”
