Travel + Leisure readers have chosen Disney Cruise Line as the No. 1 Ocean Cruise Line among those carrying 2,200 passengers or more. As part of the publication’s World’s Best Awards, readers were asked to rate cruise lines on their service, staterooms, food, destinations, excursions and value.
“This award is an honor for our team,” said Jeff Vahle, president of Disney Cruise Line. “It certainly is a testament to the one-of-a-kind entertainment and experiences available on our ships, but it also speaks to the attentive service and unforgettable moments delivered by our cast and crew members. They are the secret to our magic, and this recognition goes to them.”
Each year, thousands of Travel + Leisure readers vote on their favorite destinations, hotels, resorts, spas, airlines, cruise lines, tour operators, rental-car agencies, and more as part of the publication’s annual reader’s survey. One reader told Travel + Leisure editors, “Disney Cruise Line knows how to do things right. It’s not just for kids. They set the bar so high.” While another shared that “The best part of the cruise was the service that we received.” The 2019 survey results will be published in the August issue of Travel + Leisure and are available online now.
“For 24 years, our readers have been voting in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards. This annual franchise is a global collection of the top hotels, islands, cities, cruise lines, airlines, and more,” says Jacqueline Gifford, Travel + Leisureeditor in chief. “I congratulate all of this year’s winners, who have worked so hard to be among the world’s best.”
