We’re so pleased to announce the winners of our very first Cruiseline.com Awards. This year, we convened a panel of our crack cruise writers — travelers who eat, sleep, and breathe ships — to see what impressed them most of all.
Our team included Sherri Eisenberg (editor-in-chief), Heidi Sarna (a Singapore-based cruise writer who's been writing about ships for more than 20 years), Ted Scull (a Manhattan-based travel writer who has been cruising on ocean liners since he was a small boy), Lisa Cheng (a Connecticut-based travel writer who spent more time on ships this spring than she did at home), and Donna Heiderstadt (a Long Island, New York-based writer who covered ships for years as part of the honeymoon destinations circuit, and now focuses on them).
Our conversations over two days in New York were sometimes heated and sometimes almost silent as the group nodded in agreement. The results may surprise, delight, or anger you — no matter how you respond, we hope you’ll share your thoughts here in the comments, on our Facebook® page, or privately with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
