Following months of voting, we can now reveal the finalists in the passenger favourite categories for this year’s Wave Awards.

A record year saw close to 70,000 votes cast, and it was close across all categories.

Finalists will be invited to a prestigious black-tie event and gala dinner at London’s De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms on 7 March, where we will reveal those nominees who attracted the highest number of public votes.

There are still tables available to book for the big night – don’t miss out on this spectacular event and find out how to book a place on the Wave Awards website.

The Wave Awards – launched in 2015 – celebrate the very best of the UK’s cruise industry. The majority of the awards are independently judged by a panel of cruise industry experts. The public voting is a separate element of the Wave Awards.

Known as the Oscars of cruising, they recognise and reward excellence and innovation in a business that is continuously evolving to deliver an exceptional experience, both on board and ashore.
