There couldn’t have been a more fit­ting set­ting for the Tues­day 8 Au­gust in­au­gu­ral Sig­na­ture Cruise Awards Pre­sen­ta­tion Lunch than Sails on Laven­der Bay. The sun-filled McMa­hons Point res­tau­rant was buzzing with Aus­tralian rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the world’s finest lux­ury cruise lines. They were all cel­e­brat­ing their re­cent wins in the Best-of-the-Best Lux­ury Cruise Awards 2017, which were an­nounced in the win­ter edi­tion of Sig­na­ture Lux­ury Travel & Style. Founder, CEO & Group Edi­tor, Cathy Wagstaff, de­liv­ered the open­ing re­marks, com­mend­ing all win­ners for their un­re­lent­ing pur­suit of ex­cel­lence. Joel Katz, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of CLIA Aus­trala­sia, set the scene, with ex­tra­or­di­nary fig­ures from CLIA’s lat­est re­port on ocean cruis­ing. In 2016, the in­dus­try grew 21 per cent to see 1.28 mil­lion Aus­tralians set­ting sail on an ocean cruise.
