Orion continues its winning ways

Building on its reputation as the premier expedition cruise product in Australasia, last night (6th December 2010) Orion received the prestigious Cruise Passenger Magazine Readers' Choice Award for Best small/adventure ship - for the sixth year in a row.

This award caps off a successful year for Orion Expedition Cruises that, in November, included recognition as the Best Responsible Cruise Operator at the international 2010 Virgin Holidays Responsible Tourism Awards and, earlier in the year, an Honorable Mention, Education in the 4th Annual Conde Nast Traveler Save the World Awards for initiatives undertaken with local schools in Papua New Guinea.

Locally, at the 2010 Australian Gourmet Traveller Travel Awards in the single category for cruising, Orion Expedition Cruises scooped the Best Cruise Line (Global) accolade ahead of other finalists including Cunard, Silversea and The Yachts of Seabourn.
