Whether it’s cruising around the Caribbean or soaking up the sun on Disney Castaway Cay, Cruise Critic Members agree that Disney Cruise Line is number one. I’m excited to share with you that Cruise Critic announced the results of this year’s Cruiser’s Choice Destination awards and Disney Cruise Line ranked as the top cruise line across three categories: “Top Cruise Line in the Eastern Caribbean, Bahamas and Bermuda,” “Top Cruise Line in the Western Caribbean and Riviera Maya” and, for the fourth consecutive year, “Top Cruise Line Private Island.”
The Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards are selected based on thousands of first-hand reviews posted to the Cruise Critic website over the past year. Cruise Critic offers one of the largest online cruise communities with more than 350,000 cruise reviews. Colleen McDaniel, Editor-in-Chief of Cruise Critic, shared with us that Cruise Critic Members consistently tell them that a Disney cruise is a vacation for all ages.
These awards really speak volumes about the high level of satisfaction our guests feel after sailing with Disney. Our thousands of Cast and Crew Members work to make each guest feel like a VIP from the moment they’re welcomed aboard. In the words of our Disney Cruise Line President Jeff Vahle, “It’s our dedicated officers and crew members who deliver the Disney difference again and again.”
The fun definitely doesn’t stop onboard our ships. Disney Castaway Cay is a 1,000-acre private island in the Bahamas with turquoise waters, white-sand beaches and swaying palm trees that is exclusive to Disney Cruise Line guests. One Cruise Critic member described the island as “the best place on earth with plenty to do for all ages.” Another shared, “We had the time of our lives. The children were well entertained and there was a separate area for adults to relax and enjoy.”
I couldn’t agree more with the Cruise Critic community. I don’t know about you, but this all makes me want to be sailing onboard or lounging on a beach chair at Castaway Cay right about now. Excuse me while I go plan my next Disney Cruise Line vacation! Hope to see you onboard.
