Oceania’s Best Cruise Terminal nomination

The Port of Suva has been nominated for the Oceania’s Best Cruise Terminal 2022 by the World Cruise Awards for the second time.

Fiji Ports Corporation Limited chief executive officer Vajira Piyasena said the company is stoked about the nomination despite winning the award last year.

“This is a great achievement for Fiji, the Port of Suva and for FPCL as the managing company to continually be recognized on a global scale. This is an opportune time especially with the first cruise vessels finally coming back to Fiji after two years in August,” he said.

Awards are based on a global voting system and are open to industry and non-industry personnel and overseen by an executive panel.

The World Cruise Awards is the sister event to the World Travel Awards. The Port of Suva is the capital and commercial centre of the Pacific Ocean paradise of Fiji.

The port is on the south-eastern shore of Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, and is a free port and important tourist destination. It is one of the destinations where cruise liners stopover in Fiji other than Port Denarau and the Lautoka Wharf.

Since its inception in 1994 the World Cruise Awards aim to foster growth, innovations, and best practice in the cruise sector on a global scale.

The program covers the global cruise sector where nominees range from small companies and start-ups to global brands.

Categories include Best Cruise Line, Best Cruise Destination (Fiji has also been nominated for this award), Best Cruise Terminal, Best Cruise Travel Agency, and Best River Cruise Ship.

The winner for each category is determined by the total votes, and voting closes on September 14.
