Cruise Passenger – Vote to Win ipad mini

Fill out the form and be in the running to win an iPad Mini.

Australia’s cruise industry continues to grow – making our consumer awards even more important. They are your way of helping to ensure that the industry’s high standards are maintained.

We – and cruise companies – know that the most vigilant inspectors are you, the cruise passenger.

That’s why all the major cruise lines acknowledge that a vote from a client is worth far more than awards that poll industry peers and professionals.

Last year, you voted in record numbers. This year, we hope to hear from even more of you about your favourite cruise lines, their ships and their service.

We’ve expanded our range of awards this year to cover the increasing emphasis on fine food, wellness and onboard activities.

And we’re awarding 10 lucky entrants who send us the best reason for their vote in the Best Ocean Cruise Line category (in 25 words or less) an iPad mini.

Voting in the Cruise Passenger 2014 Awards and entry to the competition is now live on our website. It will only take a few minutes, so do your bit for the cruise line you love and vote now!

The categories of Luxury, Premium and Mid-Range are based on the star ratings of the majority of ships operated by the cruise lines according to the independent Berlitz complete Guide to Cruising and Cruise Ships 2014.

Luxury is 5-star and above; Premium is 4-star and above; Mid-Range is 2.5-star to 4 –star.
