Wave Awards


The Wave Awards 2023 will be held at the iconic Dorchester hotel on 13 November. 

Located in central London and overlooking Hyde Park in Mayfair, The Dorchester is a 1930s luxury landmark and one of the world’s most prestigious hotels.

Join us and celebrate the very best achievements in the cruise sector, with awards covering cruise lines, travel agencies, destinations and much more.

This year, there are new categories for travel agents, including Best Small Agency, open to high street, online or home-based agencies with 10 members of staff or fewer, and Best Independent/Solo Agent, designed to reward homeworkers and mini agencies.

In addition, for 2023 there is a greater focus on technology and how this is changing the cruise sector.

As with previous events, there are a host of cruise line categories, such as Best Ocean Cruise Line, Best River Cruise Line and Best New Ship Launch.

On-board awards – think Best for Accommodation and Best for Cuisine – will also be on offer. Special awards will be announced on the night, to recognise lasting and instrumental contributions to the sector.
