Pullmantur wins Award for Most Popular Cruise Company
Providing unbelievable all-inclusive value, Pullmantur have been successful in operating highly enjoyable cruises around the Mediterranean, Europe, South America and the Caribbean. Since being purchased by Royal Caribbean in 2006, the Spanish cruise line has had a range of monumental cruise ships transferred to its fleet. Former Royal Caribbean ships: Empress, Sovereign and Monarch; and former Celebrity Cruises ships: Horizon and Zenith contribute to an enviable collection of ships.
Earlier this month, Pullmantur’s long and hard work was rewarded as they scooped the awards for Best Popular Company and Best Crew in the 2015 Cruise Excellence Awards. The winners of each award are a result of individual feedback from travellers, with surveys being taken from October 2014 asking them to rate their cruise experience in several individual fields.
200 professionals from the cruise industry and tourism sector came together in Palma de Majorca on February 19 for the eighth edition of the Cruise Excellence Awards. Organised by the Cruises News Media Group, the event awards cruise companies in 12 different fields including: marketing, crew feedback, entertainment, value and overall cost.
The annual event is widely sponsored around the Mediterranean and has the support of Medcruise. Awards were also presented to Barcelona for Best Port and the President of Ports of Spain, José Llorca Ortega, was awarded for Contribution to the Development of the Cruise Industry in Spain.
Additionally, Royal Caribbean won the award for “Contribution to the Spanish Market and Mediterranean Market”. With the backing of Royal Caribbean, Pullmantur has helped to establish a strong cruise market in Spain.
In 2015, Pullmantur equates for 1.6% of all cruise passengers worldwide and has a 1.2% slice of the total revenue from the cruise industry.
