Cruise+Ferry Awards Winners


Cruise+Ferry Awards Winners

Lloyd’s List Events, organisers of the recent Cruise + Ferry 2001 trade show and conference in London, hosted prestigious awards. Nominations reflected the ingenuity of operators, designers, builders and suppliers in meeting demand for ever-increasing size, speed, style and service standards. Royal Olympic’s 28-knot Olympic Voyager was crowned as the most significant new cruise vessel of the past two years for pioneering a fast cruising concept. Olympic Voyager offers unique “Three continents in one week” due to a patented fast monohull design combining high speed with low fuel costs.

  • The Irish Ferries giant Ulysses, built by Aker Finnyards, was voted most significant new ferry as the largest-capacity vehicle carrier in its class.
  • Tasmanian yard Incat Australia scooped the fast ferry prize with Evolution 10, which also won best technical development honours for its retractable T-foil - praised as “a spectacular feature, which enhances both passenger comfort and the bottom line”.
  • The best cruise ship interior award went to Royal Caribbean and US designers Wilson Butler Lodge for Voyager of the Seas. Greek operator Minoan Lines and Italy’s Studio de Jorio took best ferry/fast ferry interior with Knossos Palace.
  • Bristol-based Broadgate Limited won best safety innovation for the VER3000 voyage data recorder, hailed as ahead of its time in enhancing safety at the design stage.
  • The pollution-beating EnviroEngine, developed by Finland’s Wartsila with the Carnival Corporation, emerged as best environmental contribution.

    The awards were presented by Susan Parker, editor of the leading trade publication Lloyd’s Cruise International, who said the range of entries confirmed the industry’s intent to keep pushing on the boundaries of innovation.
