Disney Cruise Line Ranked as No. 1 Cruise Experience for Families
CELEBRATION, Fla., (July 19, 2011) – Disney Cruise Line was recently recognized as No. 1 in the Large-Ship Cruise Line for Families category in Travel + Leisure magazine's "World's Best Awards 2011."
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.
In addition to taking top honors as the best family cruise experience, Disney Cruise Line was also ranked No. 4 in the Large-Ship Cruise Line category.
"It is an honor to be recognized by Travel + Leisure magazine as the No. 1 cruise line for families," said Karl Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line. "We strive to deliver an unparalleled family cruise experience for our guests and this recognition is a testament to the commitment our cast and crew members have for making the Disney experience the best at sea."
Disney Cruise Line established the family cruise market in the cruise industry providing a unique vacation experience where families can reconnect, adults can recharge and children can immerse themselves in worlds of fantasy only Disney can create. From a theatre featuring live musical performances to a luxurious spa for adults and nearly an entire deck dedicated to children's activities, Disney ships offer something every member of the family can enjoy.
Disney Cruise Line continues to raise the bar on the family cruise experience with its newest ships, the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy, scheduled to launch in March 2012, with new technologies and innovations designed to make guest experiences even more magical. Featuring the cruise industry's first-ever onboard water coaster, Aqua Duck, French-inspired, gourmet cuisine for adults in Remy and Enchanted Art that magically comes alive as guests pass by, Disney Cruise Line delivers a vacation experience that every member of the family feels was created especially for them.
