Considered the Oscars of Cruising, the Wave Awards marks and celebrates the very best in the cruise travel industry, as voted for by readers of World of Cruising magazine.
The Wave Awards recognise and reward excellence and innovation in a business that is continuously evolving to deliver an exceptional experience, both on board and ashore.

For the past year, avid cruisers have been casting their votes for their top ‘favourites’ for each of the seven public Wave Award categories, which include Favourite Ocean Cruise Line, Favourite River Cruise Line and Favourite Cruise Destination, among others. We can now reveal that Hebridean Island Cruises has been shortlisted as finalists in Best Specialist Cruise Line and Best for Solo Travellers categories.

Real Response Media group editor Colette Doyle said: “The Wave Awards is the highlight of the cruise calendar and our shortlist demonstrates a wide breadth of success and innovation across the sector… We wish all those on the list the best of luck.”

Real Response Media publishing director Peter Grant added: “The 2020 event promises to be our biggest yet, with a first-class venue hosting a wonderful evening of celebration.

“Winning a Wave Award is a prestigious acknowledgement of hard work, innovation and teamwork, highlighting all those who strive, every day, to raise awareness of the industry and entice more and more holidaymakers to book a cruise.

“I would personally like to thank everyone who entered and extend my best wishes to all those on the shortlist.”

On 2 April 2020, the winners will be announced at an exclusive black-tie event in London.
