A FERRY firm based at North Shields international ferry terminal are celebrating success for the third time in three months.

DFDS Seaways was awarded the prestigious accolade of World’s Leading Ferry Operator at the World Travel Awards last Wednesday, following on from last month’s honour of receiving The Freedom of the Borough of North Tyneside, and winning Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator by the European leg of the 2012 World Travel Awards in October.

The latest award recognises DFDS Seaways’ commitment to excellence over the last 12 months and the gold winner’s trophy received will be displayed proudly by the cruise ferry operator as a sign to customers of its continual dedication to delivering high quality service.

This is the second year running that DFDS Seaways has been bestowed the honour.

John Crummie, UK passenger director for DFDS Seaways said: “To win all three awards in 2012 is a remarkable achievement by everyone at DFDS Seaways.

“And to receive the World’s Leading Ferry Operator award for a second year is a fantastic endorsement of the excellent service and standards we strive to deliver for our customers on a daily basis.

“We believe that a customer’s holiday begins when they board one of our cruise ferries and the attention to detail by all our team in our restaurants, bars, Kids’ Clubs and entertainment venues is something we pride ourselves on.”
