Boutique cruise line Windstar Cruises has done it again, taking home three Gold Magellans and two Silver Magellans in the 2017 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards, which recognized the company for the second year running as a “Gold Winner in Overall Small Cruise Ship” travel.
Windstar also earned accolades for its exceptional shore excursions, intriguing itineraries, one-of-a-kind advertising and marketing campaigns, and captivating blog. The Magellans come on the heels of another recent accolade, as Windstar was named to the Platinum List by American Airlines’ Celebrated Living magazine for Best Boutique Cruising Experience. In 2017, Windstar enhanced the overall guest experience, notably with an expanded culinary partnership as the Official Cruise Line of the James Beard Foundation.
Officially announced in the October 30 issue of the magazine, the Travel Weekly Magellan Awards honor the best in travel and salute the outstanding travel professionals behind it all. The awards are judged by a panel consisting of top-notch travel experts, bringing more weight to the award than the five-pound gold and silver statuettes that accompany the titles.
The Celebrated Living Platinum List Awards are featured in the current issue on board American Airlines’ flights, displaying their annual selection of the best of the best in luxury travel across 21 categories. A list of nominees were chosen by fourteen esteemed experts in the fields of media, hospitality, fashion, and the arts and then voted upon by the publication’s readers in an online poll.
“We’ve had an exceptional year and these awards are a reminder of just that,” said Windstar’s President John Delaney. “We couldn’t be happier or more honored to be recognized by both readers and industry greats as both a Platinum List Winner, and Gold and Silver Magellan Awardee and for our small ship cruise experiences, which we constantly strive to improve on so that no two experiences are…
