And the Award goes to…. Disney Cruise Line! The results are in.. and you have spoken! Disney has done it again.

For the 3rd year in a row, Disney Cruise Line was named “Best Overall” by Cruise Critic, the online cruise community. They have announced the winners of its 2015 Cruisers’ Choice Awards and Disney came out on top. Cruise Critic’s awards are based on YOU. They are entirely based on consumer reviews posted to the Cruise Critic website.

Disney was the big winner this year with Disney Dream winning in the large-ship category and Disney Wonder in the mid-size category. In total, Disney’s fleet won 12 awards, including “Best Entertainment” and “Best Cruises to the Bahamas” for Disney Dream, and “Best Cabins,” “Best Service” and “Best for Families” for Disney Fantasy.

The Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards are awarded in three ship classes, based on passenger capacity. (Although Disney publishes capacity for the Disney Wonder and Magic at 2,700 passengers, that number includes children in third and fourth berths. Cruise Critic judges all ships on a double-occupancy basis, so the two 877-stateroom ships fit into the mid-size category.)

Large is for 2,000-plus passengers. Mid-size for 1,200 to 1,999 passengers. Small for 1,199 or fewer passengers.
