It’s official – cruising has never been so popular with latest figures revealing almost two million of us brits holidayed at sea last year. Regular readers of this magazine already know that nothing beats a cruise – but it’s always good to welcome new fans onboard. Here at World of Cruising HQ we are still on a high after the success of The Wave Awards 2018 – a glittering event held in London celebrating the best of the best in this brilliant industry. More than 65,000 votes were cast in our public vote – turn to page 91 to see which of your favourites carried off the prizes
It is not just the cruising world which is is evolving, here on World of Cruising we are also making changes. After two fabulous years at the helm. I’m excited to become Executive Editor so I can spend more time writing for the magazine in the place I am happiest – at sea! I am delighted to welcome new Editor Karen Pasquali Jones onboard and look forward to, hopefully, meeting some of you on my travels.
