Luxury river cruise operator APT is celebrating news that its US partner AmaWaterways has been awarded two accolades as part of the 8th Annual Cruise Critic US Editors’ Picks Awards. This year for the first time ever, Cruise Critic designated specific awards for its new River Cruise Line category, with AmaWaterways receiving the following:
- Best River Line for Dining
- Best River Line for Active Cruisers
Commenting on the awards APT’s Executive General Manager Global Sales and Marketing, Debra Fox said, “We are thrilled for AmaWaterways. These awards are reflective of the hard work and dedication of the teams in Europe who work tirelessly to deliver exceptional itineraries and menus onboard our ships. Our Australian guests who travel on APT and AmaWaterways itineraries share the same experience and exemplary service from our onboard teams and so we are delighted that their efforts have been recognised by Cruise Critic’s panel of experts.”
AmaWaterways’ success in the Cruise Critic Editors’ Pick Awards follow APT’s receipt of three AFTA National Travel Industry Awards in July 2015, where APT won the newly introduced Best River Cruise Category, ‘Best Tour Operator Domestic’ (fourth year running), and ‘Best Tour Operator, International’ (second year running).
