The Wave Awards celebrate the very best of the UK cruise industry. They recognise and reward excellence and innovation across the sector, with categories for cruise lines, tourist boards, travel agents, and tour operators.

The judging panel is made up of cruise industry leaders and experts. There are also special ‘Favourite’ awards, as voted for by the public, ensuring all elements of the cruise industry are covered.

A unique and distinct awards ceremony, the Wave Awards bring together Real Response Media’s two leading cruise brands – World of Cruising and Cruise Trade News – under one umbrella.
