The winners of the 14th annual Cruise Critic Editors’ Picks Awards, the cruise industry’s most comprehensive honors, have been announced.
The awards recognize the best cruise lines of the year as determined by the site’s international staff of cruise experts. In recognition of the huge expansion of the expedition cruise business in recent years, this year’s awards also include a special category for expedition travel. The first ship in Norwegian’s wholly new Prima ship class, Norwegian Prima, was selected Best New Ship of the Year, ushering in a new era of Norwegian ships. Customers will value Norwegian Prima’s upmarket décor and contemporary accommodations, which are all matched with fresh thrills, entertaining shows, and superb dining options, according to Cruise Critic’s editors.
