Yesterday we posted about Queen Mary 2 winning best cruise ship refurbishment in 2016 and now the iconic liner has won another category!

Queen Mary 2 which is operated by British-based Cunard Line has won the “Best Cruise Ship For British Market” in the 2016 Cruise Ship Awards by Cruise Hive readers. In second place came the popular P&O Britannia which features that famous Union Jack hull artwork. In third place was Queen Elizabeth and fourth Saga Sapphire operated by Saga Cruises. All the way with the lowest amount of votes was the Balmoral by Fred Olsen Cruise Line.


Queen Mary 2 is an iconic ship for the UK market which sails around the world and transatlantic cruises between Southampton, UK and New York in the United States. When the ocean liner first entered service in 2003 it was the biggest cruise ship in the world at 150,000 gross tons. Since then many larger ships have taken that number one slot but Queen Mary 2 is like not other in the industry. The ship is in a class of its own and offers luxury to the British market.

Thousands voted in this year’s Cruise Ship Awards where new categories were added every month since September 2016. The awards are not like other’s in the industry and readers were only allowed to vote once in each category. Any double votes were not counted.
