Ship of the Year awards

ICFR is delighted to launch our inaugural Ship of the Year awards and we’re inviting you to help us choose which cruise ships and passenger ferries have raised the bar when it comes to innovations in construction and design, onboard amenities, and environmental stewardship since debuting in 2019.

Before voting starts, we need your nominations. To ensure your favourite ship gets the recognition it deserves, please fill out the nomination form with the name of the vessel and a brief explanation outlining the reasons for your choice. For a ship to be considered eligible for an award, it must carry passengers and have entered service between 1 January and 31 December 2019 in one of the four following categories: cruise, river cruise, ferry and high-speed ferry.

Confidential nominations can be submitted between 1 October and 31 December 2019. The ICFR team will then review all submissions to compile a shortlist of the five ships with the most nominations in each category before voting opens between 24 January and 24 February 2020.
