The ballots are in, the votes have been tallied and Silversea has just been named "Star Luxury Cruise Provider" for the fifth consecutive year!
The award was announced at the 15th Travel Bulletin Star Awards ceremony held at London's prestigious Landmark Hotel on 12 September 2011.
Sam Perry (pictured above), Silversea's Sales Manager for London, accepted the stylish crystal award on behalf of Silversea.
Launched in 1975, Travel Bulletin is a leading weekly magazine for UK travel agents. The winners of the Star Awards were chosen by travel agents. These awards are considered among the most fair and independent in the industry as agents are given free rein to vote for whomever they prefer; they are asked to name one company that they view to be the very best in each category.
