Congratulations to the team at Disney Cruise Line who have been named the number one for families for the fourth year in a row. Travel + Leisure magazine named DCL as No. 1 in the Large-Ship Cruise Lines for Families category in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2012. In addition to taking top honors for its family cruise experience, this is the eighth consecutive year Disney Cruise Line has been ranked among the top five Large-Ship Cruise Lines overall in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards readers’ survey.
“We are honored that the readers of Travel + Leisure have recognized Disney Cruise Line as the ‘World’s Best’ for families and as one of the top cruise lines overall,” said Karl Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line. “Our cast and crew members are passionate about surprising our guests with a magical experience at sea and exceeding their expectations, and that is why families return to Disney Cruise Line again and again.”
Disney Cruise Line pioneered the family market in the cruise industry, providing a high seas experience that is uniquely Disney, but also full of activities for all ages. The fleet has grown to four ships, enabling guests to sail to more destinations with Disney than ever before and making it easier than ever for guests to sail from a port close to their own backyard.
The annual “World’s Best” list recognizes the best in travel for hotels, cities, islands, cruise lines, airlines, car-rental agencies, spas, and tour operators and safari outfitters. Winners were selected by readers who participated in a survey and rated cruise lines on criteria including cabins, food, service, itineraries and destinations, activities and value.
