This year’s Community Awards event was once again celebrated, with 250 festive guests gathered on the deck of Pearl Seaways for an afternoon of fun and celebration on Thursday
The sun slowly broke through the mellow skies as 10 community awards were presented with glowing hearts, heartfelt smiles and touching words. It was time for the yearly Community Awards on board Pearl Seaways in perfect surroundings and atmosphere for an afternoon filled with joy, laughter and caring love for society, communities and those who selflessly make an effort to help others and enhance community life in Denmark. An event which DFDS took part in bringing to life in 2014 with the current Danish Prime Minister and Leader of the Danish Social Democratic Party, Mette Frederiksen, together with other partners. And which Pearl Seaways has proudly hosted ever since.
The crew was well prepared as always and the guests were greeted on the sun deck with champagne and canapés creatively prepared by the skilled colleagues in the kitchen on board.

The Minister for Children and Education, , opened the event by reminding everyone how important communities are and how they can make a lot of people feel included and valued. She presented one of the 10 awards to people in Denmark who have made an exceptional and selfless contribution to their communities. Read more about the 10 award winners in Questo articolo in danese.
An entertaining afternoon of music and speeches went smoothly as Pearl made a round trip in the calm waters of Copenhagen harbour. The many guests noisily expressed their excitement with the ship, the service and, of course, the lovely and beautifully prepared food served on the trip.
“We are extremely honoured and thankful to be the chosen venue for this amazing event. It means a lot for us to be part of a celebration that recognises exceptional people as well as diversity. Once again it was a great experience and, true to form, the weather gods smiled on us, allowing us to host this beautiful event on the sun deck. I would like to thank everyone who helped make the event a success again this year,” says Brian Blixt Jacobsen, Commercial Head on board Pearl Seaways.
