DFDS Seaways has been named Europe’s leading ferry operator at the European leg of the 2014 World Travel Awards in Greece.
It is the eighth consecutive year the ferry company has been recognised for its service at the World Travel Awards.
The awards are recognised worldwide as the Oscars of the travel industry and the premier industry awards programme, with the winners decided by votes from travel industry professionals and consumers.
The cruise and passenger ferry firm fought off competition from rival firms Brittany Ferries, Color Line and P&O Ferries.
The award-winning ferry company puts its success down to its quality onboard offering with restaurants, bars, live entertainment, children’s play areas and its focus on customer service.
The operator also offers a comprehensive passenger route network, which incorporates six routes from the UK to Europe, including Portsmouth to Le Havre.
Max Foster, passenger director for DFDS Seaways, said: ‘We are incredibly proud to be recognised as Europe’s leading ferry operator.
‘We strive to always deliver the very best service to our passengers and act as a gateway to Europe.
‘We have also got our fingers crossed ahead of the grand final gala ceremony, to be held in Marrakech in Morocco on November 29, where we are nominated in the ‘World’s Leading Ferry Operator’ category.’
