Testament to hard work of staff

Passenger Director Max Foster comments: “We feel extremely honoured to be awarded ‘Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator’ for the fourth time. This award is testament to the hard work of all our staff on our ships, as well as our land-based teams, who strive to provide all our guests the best possible maritime experience”.

We’re also nominated for the World’s Leading Ferry Operator 2015’ Award, of which the winner will be announced in November. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for that one!
