Porthole Cruise Magazine, the world's leading consumer cruise and travel publication based in the United States has awarded Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cakes the 2015 Editor-In-Chief Award for Best Cruise Souvenir. Announced in the January/February issue and online at www.porthole.com, this is the 11th consecutive year that Tortuga has been honored by the magazine.
Tortuga Rum Cakes are sold in nearly 100 on board cruise ship gift shops and stores in ports throughout the Caribbean. Made from a generations old island family recipe, Tortuga Rum Cakes are baked in Jamaica, Barbados, the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas. Each cake is hand glazed with a special, five-year-old blend of Tortuga Gold Rum, then vacuum sealed to lock in the delicious freshness.
"It's hard to miss the fact that cruisers love Tortuga products," said Bill Panoff, publisher and editor-in-chief of Porthole Cruise Magazine. "It's the company's consistent quality and flavor of its products that I believe keep visitors bringing home the rum cakes, especially, as a perfect reminder of their cruise."
Porthole Cruise Magazine’s Editor- in-Chief Awards annually honor cruise lines, island merchants, ports, resorts and others that the magazine consider being among the best in the business. From world-class accommodations to unique island experiences to innovative onboard features, the Editor-In-Chief Awards are presented to pay tribute to standouts in the travel industry.
