Quasar Expeditions Has Been Named Best Small-Ship Ocean Cruise Line for 2018
Quasar Expeditions has been named the number one small-ship ocean cruise line in Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards 2018. The result of an extensive reader's survey, the Travel + Leisure winners were announced last month.
"It is such an honor that the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine have chosen Quasar Expeditions as the top small-ship cruise line in the world. We are thrilled and truly appreciate each and every person who took the time to vote," said Dolores Gangotena Diez, Commercial Vice President of Quasar Expeditions.
Quasar Expeditions operates cruises around the Galapagos Islands on their two yachts, the M/V Evolution and M/Y Grace. The privately owned company is a strong advocate of sustainability, offering carbon-neutral adventures and partnering with several conservation organizations. Quasar's core mission is to provide guests the opportunity to visit remote destinations while leaving the smallest footprint possible.
The winners were selected via a survey developed by the editors of Travel + Leisure, in association with research firm M&RR, which was made available at tlworldsbest.com from November 6, 2017, to March 5, 2018. Respondents were asked to rate airlines, airports, car-rental agencies, cities, cruise ships, destination spas, hotels, hotel brands, islands, tour operators, and safari outfitters on a number of characteristics. The scores are indexed averages of responses concerning applicable characteristics.
All winners were honored at the Travel + Leisure awards ceremony in New York City on July 24, 2018.
