Portsmouth International Port is celebrating after a double win at industry Wave Awards.

Dubbed the ‘Oscars’ of the cruise industry, the Wave Awards brings together international cruise lines, ports, travel agents and destinations to recognise the very best of the UK’s cruise sector.

Voted by industry experts, Portsmouth faced serious competition from international ports for Best Port, and major organisations for Best Environmental Innovation.

Portsmouth launched its brand new terminal this summer and is heading for a record breaking year for cruise calls. This also follows the announcement the port is on track to be the first UK port to provide shore power across multiple berths for multiple ships, after securing UK government funding to deliver an innovative sustainable energy project by 2025.

Andrew Williamson, Portsmouth International Port’s head of cruise and ferry said:

“It was an honour to represent Portsmouth and pick up not one, but two awards, Best Environmental Innovation and Best Port.”
