Pentland Ferries is delighted that the MV Alfred has been nominated, in the ferries category, for the new International Cruise and Ferry Review (ICFR) Ship of the Year awards.

This first-ever awards will, according to ICFR, celebrate the game-changing cruise ships and passenger ferries that entered service in 2019: “Over the past couple of months, we’ve received numerous nominations for the new cruise ships, river cruise vessels, ferries and high-speed ferries that have surpassed our readers’ expectations in terms of innovative construction and design, onboard amenities and experiences, and environmental stewardship.”

MV Alfred is one of five ships to make the shortlist in the ferries category, and ICFR is now inviting its readers to vote for the winning vessel via its website.

Director of Pentland Ferries, Kathryn Scollie, said: “It was a lovely surprise to learn that we had been nominated and reached the final five in our category. Our team has worked extremely hard to bring the new ship into service, so it is particularly rewarding to be recognised by ICFR for what we have achieved.”

Votes can be submitted between 24 January and 24 February. All submissions will then be reviewed and the winners revealed in each category in the Spring/Summer 2020 issue of ICFR, to be published in March 2020.
