Cruise Saudi nominated in three major cruise tourism industry awards

Monday, August 21, 2023


According to a Saudi Press Agency report, Cruise Saudi has received nominations for three significant cruise industry awards programs.

The company was named a finalist for “Middle East’s Best Cruise Destination” by the World Cruise Awards, “Destination of the Year” by the Seatrade Cruise Awards, and “Best Excursion” by the Wave Awards.

The World Cruise Awards have recognized the firm for its achievements in growing the country’s cruise industry, improving ports along the Red Sea and Arabian Gulf coasts, and offering shore excursions that showcase Saudi Arabia’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites, culture, and hospitality.

The “The Lives of Saudi Women” cruise trip is nominated for a Wave Award. According to the description of the trip, which is solely available to female travelers, it offers a greater knowledge of the role of women in the Kingdom by giving true insights into their history and present lives.

One of the 18 historical women’s shelters in the neighborhood, which was recently converted by Saudi entrepreneur Haleel Alabassi into an Arabic language school, is one of the stops on the trip that takes visitors to Jeddah’s Historic District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

“We’re delighted to be nominated for awards at the World Cruise Awards, Seatrade Cruise Awards and Wave Awards,” said Cruise Saudi CEO Lars Clasen.

“The categories we have been nominated for are especially important to us, as they recognize the hard work our team and our partners have put in to create exceptional experiences for our passengers and to make a positive contribution to the wider global cruising industry.”

On October 15, there will be a gala event at Atlantis the Royal hotel in Dubai where the winners of the World Cruise Awards will be announced. The Wave Awards will be given out on November 13 at the Dorchester Hotel in London, while the Seatrade Cruise Awards will be given out on September 6 during the Seatrade Europe exposition in Hamburg, Germany.
