Shout out to our award-winning teams!
Whenever our parks win awards, I like to post a blog about it. And 2012 has been particularly full of recognition, firsts and awards for all of our parks! In order to put it all in perspective, I decided to do write up all the accolades in one blog. I knew we were having an award winning year but seeing all the accolades in place, reminds me of how hard our team has been working.
Here is the run down of awards in no particular order – first our cruise line awards and then other awards and accolades our parks have won;
Our Awards from Cruise LinesThese awards are based on consistent high ratings, positive passenger comments and excellent value as rated by the passengers of Princess Cruises.
Low Volume Tour of the Season award from Princess Cruises
Guide of the Year for 2012 from Princess Cruise LinesPanama shore tour guide, Arthur Wagner won the prestigious Guide of the Year award for 2012, and he has won it for the past three years in a row! We have been offering Panama canal zone tours for Princess Cruise lines for years and we are so pleased that they recognize the critical importance of our guiding staff.
Number one attraction in the Caribbean AND One of the top 50 attraction in the World from Princess Cruise LinesThe Mystic Mountain Jamaica Bobsled & Dunn's River Falls experiences. Come see why the Today Show and Usain Bolt all agree that of all the attractions in Jamaica, Mystic Mountain provides the best combination of fun, splashes and screams! And remember, the bobsled actually does have brakes.
Tour of the Season from Princess Cruise LinesRainforest Adventures park offers award winning St. Lucia tours like aerial trams, bird watching and ziplines. The park was honored to be named the Tour of the season yet again in 2012.
High Volume Tour of the Season 2010/11 from Princess Cruise LinesThe “Costa Rica Favorites” shore excursion in Puntarenas. The excursion is a combination of the tour at the Pacific Park and a boat tour at the Tarcoles River known for its massive crocodiles. The lunch is a typical Tico plate with yellow rice, black beans, grilled chicken in natural tomato sauce, steamed vegetables, sweet plantains, fresh fruit and natural juices. I am getting hungry just writing about it!
Top bed and breakfast in Guápiles on TripAdvisorOur lovely, little Costa Rica rainforest bungalows in our Atlantic park were recognized for being an affordable Costa Rican jungle stay. We love our unique hotel near San Jose, Costa Rica.
Coolest Zipline in the WorldIt’s not an official award that comes with a plaque or a presentation but we think it rates mentioning when you are called a cool zipline by Travel and Leisure. And CNN said St. Lucia AndrenaLUNA zip line at night was cool! Just wait until they try the Zip Coaster at Mexico’s Hidden Worlds!
First Costa Rican Tourism Company Certified Carbon Neutral by the Carbon Unit of the EarthOur Costa Rica tours and excursions near Limon have not only been popular but also leaders in sustainability. We couldn’t help our smiles of pride when the Carbon Neutral certification was presented to Eugenia Solano, General Manager of Rainforest Aerial Tram in Costa Rica Atlantic and Luis Castillo Diego, Operations Manager of the Atlantic park.
