NCL has been awarded the title of ‘Cruise Line of the Year’ by The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation following the island’s recent 13th Annual Cacique Awards.
The Awards aim to recognise both individuals and organisations whose performance or products have consistently made a positive impact on the quality and the growth of tourism in the Bahamas.
Deputy director general of tourism for the Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, Ellison Thompson commented: “NCL and the Bahamas have enjoyed a long-standing partnership – we are pleased that they are committed to helping grow tourism in the Bahamas by bringing their Freestyle cruising ships to our islands.”
NCL was the first cruise line to sail to the Bahamas in 1966. It currently has five ships visiting the island: Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Dawn, Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Majesty.
“It’s an honour to receive this award from the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation,” said Colin Murphy, NCL’s vice president of special projects, who accepted the award on behalf of the company.
“The Bahamas offers a wealth of beauty and enjoyment for our guests.”
