Following the success of the Signature Luxury Travel & Style Cruise Awards for the past two years, we have reassembled our panel of expert judges – comprising 18 of Australasia’s leading luxury cruising experts and travel advisors – to vote on their top three cruise lines and cruise tour specialists across a range of categories. Points are awarded in six key categories – for best suites, service, dining, wellness, itineraries and shore excursions – with the total combined points determining the overall award winners.
