Disney Cruise Line has once again been named by readers of Travel + Leisure Magazine as one of the world’s best cruise lines.
The 2020 World’s Best Awards were the result of reader surveys that were completed prior to March 2, reflecting experiences that happened before the COVID-19 pandemic began.
Disney Cruise Line was named first when it comes to Mega-ship Ocean Cruise Lines, which includes lines that have ships that hold 2,200 passengers or more. Disney is also a WBA Honoree, having made the list 10 consecutive years.
Disney scored 85.83, just above Cunard (85.26) and Holland America Line (85.23). Celebrity Cruises and Princess Cruises round out the top five.
Travel + Leisure passed on these thoughts from their readers:
Voters simply love Disney Cruise Line, a perennial favorite in the World’s Best Awards. While Disney’s first-place score this year dropped slightly from last year’s, Disney repeats as winner thanks to nearly flawless service, plus a range of ships and itineraries that appeal to all ages. “They’re my favorite cruise line,” said one representative reader, who specifically mentioned the food, the entertainment, and the stateroom design. “Disney cruises have the same imagination and commitment to excellence we’ve come to expect from all things Disney,” said another reader. While some may think of the line as just for families, many readers mentioned that it’s a winner for adults-only trips as well. Said one reader, “I’ve cruised with Disney 20 times now and am never disappointed. Castaway Cay is the best cruise line private island, hands down. They’re great for kids, but the ships are also ideal for adult couples. Disney does the best job of any cruise line at keeping the adults-only areas just that.”
Disney Cruise Line was also topped the list of Best Cruise Lines for Families.
