Announces 2022 Members’ Choice Award Winners; Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises take top honors | News

Using community-generated review data rankings, names the best cruise lines and ships of the past year.

WILMINGTON, Mass., April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — is pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 Member Choice Awards. These rankings are derived from review rankings submitted by over 4,000 members who sailed on cruises in 2021. This year’s awards were given out in various categories to the best cruise lines and cruise ships.

The 2022 Member Choice Awards captured the ranking of reviews from travelers who sailed during the COVID-19 pandemic, from when cruise lines resumed operations from United States (last June) through the end of 2021. Data for these awards includes scores received with new health and safety protocols in place. The ratings give an image of the adaptation of the lines to the procedures put in place so that cruising can resume in complete safety.

The 2022 Member Choice Awards reflect ratings given only to cruise ships that resumed operations last year. As most cruise lines have slowly phased in the number of ships they put into service, our member reviews and ratings only reflect cruise lines and ships actively sailing during this time.

“In just six months, we received over four thousand member reviews from travelers who sailed in 2021. Although the cruise looked a little different from years past, the main theme of the feedback we received of our community was how excited everyone was to be back on the high seas and sailing again,” said Jamie Cashgeneral manager of and shipmate. “Our 2022 Member Choice Awards honor the cruise lines and ships that receive the highest ratings from our community. We congratulate these winners for their ability to adapt to the “new world” of cruising, while providing a fun and enjoyable experience. safe for travellers.”
