Port of Southampton named ‘Best Port’ at Wave Awards

ABP says the Port of Southampton has been awarded ‘Best Port’ in the 2021 Wave Awards, which celebrate excellence and innovation in the cruise industry. This latest win for Southampton confirms its status as the UK’s capital of cruising and Europe’s leading cruise turnaround port.

The award was presented to ABP’s Head of Cruise Rebekah Keeler and her team at the black-tie ceremony in London on 15 October. This accolade follows Seatrade Cruise Global awarding the Port of Southampton ‘Port of the Year’ last month at its annual industry event in Miami.

Rebekah Keeler said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have won our second cruise industry award of the season. It is fantastic recognition for our teams and the whole port community, acknowledging the level of work that has gone into providing the best experience for cruise lines and passengers.”

The Port of Southampton has been at the forefront of growth in the cruise industry, having spent the last few years investing heavily in its cruise infrastructure. Just this year, the port opened its fifth world-class cruise terminal, the Horizon Cruise Terminal, with an investment of £55 million. The dedicated cruise facility includes Shore Power connectivity, which means zero emissions at berth for ships with onboard capability.

As Europe’s leading cruise turnaround port, The Port of Southampton typically welcomes around 500 cruise calls and two million passengers per year.

The Wave Awards

Organised by Real Response Media (RRM), publisher of Cruise Trade News, the event saw cruise lines, travel agents, tourist boards and many more come together for an evening of pure celebration.

Guests gathered at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London, on Friday 15 October, as winners were announced across a range of categories – including both judged and passenger favourites, as voted for by the public.

Cruise Trade News editor Gary Peters said: “It was wonderful to welcome so many people from the cruise industry to the Wave Awards 2021.

“We’ve been waiting for this night for some time, and it did not disappoint. The after-party, sponsored by Royal Caribbean, was one particular highlight, with a retro-games experiencing proving a big hit. Congratulations to all the winners. Stay tuned for more information about the Wave Awards 2022.”
