The Falkland Islands Tourist Board are pleased to announce that the Falkland Islands won the best destination award in the Wave Awards in London; finalists in this category included Abu Dhabi, Akureyri, Dublin, Palma, Santa Cruz and Seattle.

 Former Director of International Communications, Tony Mason, entered the Falkland Islands in this category with a written submission on what the Islands had to offer, and what made us stand out from the crowd; this was then voted on by a panel of 16 cruise travel experts.

The Falkland Islands were also nominated in the Consumer voting category of Favourite Cruise Destination along with Greece, Barbados and Croatia. Greece won this category.

This is the second year of The Wave Awards which celebrate excellence within the cruise sector.

Thank you to all the parties involved in the industry locally who work towards making us so successful and win these awards.
