What Qualifies as an Ocean Cruise for the Solo Travel Awards
This category is designed for larger ships cruising seas and oceans in any part of the world. If appropriate, your company may also enter in the river cruise, tours or specialty tour, and/or packaged trips categories.
Criteria for the Ocean Cruise Category
All nominees will be judged based on the following criteria:
- How well they cater to solo travelers in terms of whether they apply a single supplement and how much is charged
- Whether solo spaces on cruises are limited and if so, how many are allocated as a percentage of total departures
- Whether there are special services for solo travelers before or during trips.
In addition, there will be an opportunity to tell us in your own words about your commitment to serving the solo travel market.
