SCH has helped Southampton to be named as the UK’s best departure port for cruise passengers for the second year running.

The annual Wave awards recognise the best in the cruise industry and also among the major winners was Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (RCL), which SCH services in Southampton. Royal Caribbean picked up the awards for Best Ocean Cruise Line, Best New Ship Launch (Harmony of the Seas) and Best Family Cruise Line.

SCH will service some 100 cruise ship calls in Southampton this year, with more than half under the umbrella of RCL.

Cruise Operations Manager Glen Gardner commented: “We are delighted to have made a contribution to Southampton again proving to be the top UK cruising departure port. We were also delighted to help make the maiden call of both RCL’s Harmony of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas  such a success and look forward to providing RCL with another first class service for the coming season.”
