Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has once again been named the "World's Leading Large Ship Cruise Line" by the World Travel Awards, marking the fourth consecutive year that the company has been honoured with this accolade. In addition, Norwegian won in a new category this year for the "World's Leading Cruise Line Website."

The awards were presented to Norwegian Cruise Line at the 22st annual World Travel Awards Grand Final Gala, held earlier in December 2015 in El Jadida, Morocco. The annual awards are voted on by thousands of travel and tourism professionals from across the globe and honour travel companies that provide outstanding products and customer service.

In addition to the award for top large ship cruise line worldwide, earlier this year Norwegian Cruise Line was also recognised by the World Travel Awards as "Europe's Leading Cruise Line" for the eighth consecutive year as well as the "Caribbean's Leading Cruise Line" for the third consecutive year.

"We are overjoyed to once again be honoured as a worldwide leader in the travel industry, and we thank all of the many travel partners, industry professionals and guests who voted for us," said Andy Stuart, president and chief operating officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. "We are very proud of this incredible achievement, which is a testament to our commitment to excellence across our fleet and our hard-working crew's dedication to providing our guests with an outstanding vacation experience."
