Bailiwick of Guernsey named best port of call at prestigious cruise industry awards

The Bailiwick of Guernsey has been named as the ‘Best UK & British Isles Port of Call’ at a prestigious annual cruise industry awards.

30 November 2022

Cruise Critic, the world’s leading cruise reviews site and online cruise community, has named the winners of its 14th annual Cruise Critic UK Editors’ Picks Awards. This is the industry’s most comprehensive awards and recognises the best cruise lines and destinations of the year for UK cruisers, as chosen by the site’s international team of cruise experts.

This is the fourth time the Bailiwick of Guernsey has won the award for Best UK & British Isles Port of Call.

Winning the award highlights the excellent work across the Bailiwick’s hospitality sector to ensure a high-quality onshore offering to cruise passengers. The cruise market continues to be an integral part of the islands’ tourism offer and helps drive visitor numbers and revenue, in particular following the relaunch of the cruise market post-Covid.

Mary Putra, States of Guernsey Director of Communications and Marketing, said:

‘The Cruise Critic UK Editor’s Picks Awards are prestigious within the cruise industry and we’re delighted to have been named the Best UK and British Isles Port of Call. Success of this nature takes a whole-Bailiwick approach and I want to thank all of our industry partners for their hard work to deliver a quality experience for visiting cruise passengers. The Bailiwick community always makes visitors feel so welcome and that is very much part of our unique tourism offer.’

Adam Coulter, Executive Editor of Cruise Critic UK, said:

‘These awards showcase the most standout cruise lines – and ports – of the year, based on our editorial team’s personal experience and extensive industry expertise. The list of winners is evidence of the incredible strides of the industry over the past year – not just in returning to full service, but in providing travellers with truly remarkable experiences.’
