Cruise Awards

We’re celebrating again, after scooping the ‘Partnership Achievement Award 2015 for P&O Cruises’ for an amazing 29th consecutive year at the UK Cruise Awards.

The UK Cruise Awards, held on Thursday 28th January 2016, are a prestigious event in the cruise calendar, with the industry’s biggest names coming together for a night of awards, showgirls, dinner and dancing until late. The glamorous Quaglino’s in London’s Mayfair provided a glitzy backdrop for the Las Vegas-themed evening, with pre-dinner entertainment coming courtesy of awe-inspiring aerial acrobatics and plumage aplenty from the showgirls.

We were thrilled to be announced as winners of the ‘Partnership Achievement Award’ for P&O Cruises for a 29th year in a row, with Bolsover Cruise Club’s own Julie Straw, Nathalie Avis, Helen Moore and Sharon Tucker taking to the stage to collect the shining new addition to our awards cabinet.

Speaking of his delight, Managing Director Michael Wilson said; “Winning the Partnership Achievement Award for P&O Cruises for a 29th consecutive year was an incredibly proud moment for all of us here at Bolsover Cruise Club. Our relationship with P&O Cruises has been nurtured over a great period of time and retaining this award for so long is testament to the unrivalled expertise we are able to provide our customers on the UK’s favourite cruise line. As somebody actually remarked, Ant and Dec have some catching up to do!”
