It was recently announced that the Turks and Caicos Islands has been nominated for the World Cruise Awards’ “2022 Caribbean’s Best Cruise Destination” Award for the second year in a row.


The World Cruise Awards, which is the sister event to the World Travel Awards, seeks to “recognize and reward excellence in the cruise industry.”


In its inaugural ceremony, which was held on October 24th, 2021 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the Turks and Caicos Islands was a nominee for the 2021 Caribbean Best Cruise Destination award, which was won by Jamaica. Other nominees included Barbados, Cayman Islands, as well as The Bahamas.


Historically, the Turks and Caicos Islands has done extremely well at the World Travel Awards. This year, the Turks and Caicos Islands has been nominated for eight World Travel Awards. From 2015 to 2021, the Turks and Caicos Islands, as a whole, won the award for “Caribbean’s Leading Beach Destination.”


The three years prior, spanning from 2012 to 2014, Grace Bay Beach won the award. And from 2019 to 2021, the Turks and Caicos Islands also won the award for “Caribbean’s Most Romantic Destination.” Now, TCI seeks to achieve similar success at the World Cruise Awards.


“We are delighted to have been nominated for the World Cruise Awards’ “Caribbean’s Best Cruise Destination” Award for the second consecutive year,” stated Acting Director of Tourism, Mary Lightbourne.


She noted that the Grand Turk Cruise Center is a world-class facility and this nomination bears testament, as well as to the work the Turks and Caicos Islands has put in since reopening the Grand Turk Cruise Center in December 2021.


“I highly encourage everyone to take the time to cast their vote for the Turks and Caicos Islands”, Lightbourne urged.


The voting window for the 2022 Caribbean’s Best Cruise Destination Award closes on Sunday, August 7th 2022. Votes can be cast by cruise industry professionals and cruise consumers alike on the World Cruise Awards’ webpage -
