Cruise Select is a finalist in the (Small) Cruise Agency Award, the fourth time it’s made the shortlist, and Select Travel Holiday’s Amy Wright has been shortlisted for an individual special award, the ATAS Ambassador Award.

The ATAS Ambasador Award is a new category in the Travel Weekly awards, recognising the increasing importance of the touring and adventure sector.

“I think it’s fantastic that our team at Cruise Select has yet again been recognised for their expertise as cruise specialists,” said Amy. “It’s particularly special as this year we’re celebrating our 20th anniversary.

“For me, personally, I also feel incredibly honoured to have been shortlisted for the ATAS Ambassador Award, as I’ve been really passionate about the touring and adventure sector since my first experience a few years ago, and I’ve definitely become a convert.

“It’s the first time for this award, too, which recognises the growing importance of this sector, and it’s amazing to have been recognised for my own efforts in promoting touring and adventure travel to our clients.”
