On the eve of our milestone 30th anniversary in 2021, we were delighted to be the only Australian cruise operator to be nominated in this key category. It’s a win not only for us, but also for Australia in what has been a very challenging year for so many in the local and global cruise industry.
Established in 1993, the World Travel Awards are regarded globally as the ultimate hallmark of travel and tourism industry excellence. Votes are cast by the general public along with qualified professionals working within travel and tourism – senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators and travel agents – and the results are audited to ensure validity and authenticity.
Graham E. Cooke, World Travel Awards Founder, says: “Despite the unprecedented challenges faced by the travel and tourism sector this year, AE Expeditions continues to lead the way in ship-based adventures. Its strive for excellence remains unrivalled and I am delighted that it has been acknowledged by both the travel trade and travellers alike.”
Thank you to our family of expeditioners, trade partners and everyone who voted for us. Your loyalty and support mean the world to us, and we can’t wait to take you to ever-more remote corners of the planet.
