Cruise + Ferry Finalists Reflect Rising Standards

The awards are a new feature of the leading technical and hotel services forum for operators, designers, builders and suppliers in the cruise, ferry and fast ferry sectors. Nominations in 11 categories for projects introduced in the past year have been shortlisted by judges representing the International Maritime Organisation, the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, the Maritime Hotel Academy, trade associations, consultants and specialist media. Winners will be announced at a gala dinner during Cruise + Ferry 2001, the ninth biennial exhibition and conference which takes place at London’s Olympia from May 8-10.

A record 4,000 visitors and 400 delegates are expected together with more than 400 exhibitors from 20 countries. Contenders reflect the industry’s ever-increasing demands regarding size, speed, style, safety and service standards.

The most significant new cruise vessel shortlist includes the world’s largest - Royal Caribbean’s 137,000 gt Voyager of the Seas from Kvaerner-Masa of Finland - and the 28 knot Olympic Voyager, built by Germany’s Blohm+Voss for long-distance operation by Royal Olympic of Greece. Finalists for most significant new ferry include Ulysses, built by Aker Finnyards for Irish Ferries as the largest-capacity vehicle carrier in its class, and the 31.5 knot Knossos Palace from Italy’s Fincantieri for the Minoan Lines Piraeus-Crete service.

The high speed trend is underlined by three Australian-built rivals for most significant new fast ferry while high style features among four best cruise vessel interior contenders and five finalists for best ferry/fast ferry interior.
Systems for voyage data recording, electronic chart display, low location lighting and total safety assessment will contest the award for best safety innovation. UK specialist International Maritime Security makes the marine training initiative shortlist with its on-board security programme while finalists for best technical development include an ECDIS simulator from Russia’s Transas Marine. Cunard Line’s College at Sea is a contender for the hotel training initiative award and Costa Cruise Lines is a hotel innovation finalist for its passenger lounge at Genoa airport.
