About the awards

Our 2018 Luxury Cruise Awards are following up the success of the inaugural Signature Luxury Travel & Style Cruise Awards last year, we have reassembled our panel to vote on their top three cruise lines across a range of categories. In addition to our original categories – large, small, boutique, tall ship, river and expedition – we have added the best ships for a multigenerational escape and the tour operators that elevate the cruise experience even further.
