FERRY firm DFDS Seaways, which operates out of Portsmouth, has been named Europe’s leading ferry 
operator in the 2013 World Travel Awards for the seventh year 

The 2013 World Travel Awards are recognised worldwide as the premier industry awards programme, with the winners decided by votes from both travel industry professionals and consumers.

The cruise and passenger ferry firm fought off competition from fellow Portsmouth firm Brittany Ferries, as well as Color Line and P&O Ferries.

Max Foster, passenger director for the firm, said: ‘The cruise and passenger ferry market is very competitive and we strive to deliver outstanding customer service on every sailing.

‘We feel very proud to be recognised by the World Travel Awards for the seventh consecutive year, which is a great endorsement of the high standards we adhere to and the enormous effort of our hard working staff.’
