Princess is Number Two!

Recommended Posts

The new Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards are out and, rather surprisingly, in the large ship (2500 to 4000 pax) category Princess is number 2, behind Disney but comfortably ahead of perennial favorite Celebrity (at #6). In the medium ship category PCL lags behind bunch of luxury lines and Disney but still outranks Azamara, RCI, HAL and X.

 

Yeah, it's just a popularity contest and CN Traveler appeals to a niche market, but it's still nice to see. After all, in Cruise Critic polls Princess often trails Carnival and NCL and Celebrity gets all the glory. Looks like the Royal class is a hit. I do wonder why X didn't score well: gone down in quality? Or maybe the folks in Santa Clarita bought votes? (Just kidding.)

 

Anyway, congrats to you all for being such discerning travelers.

Never heard about a campaign. They never contacted me. Did they you?

Like a political election by the sounds of it, who campaigned best.

Sounds something like the Oscars.....he who campaigns the most wins!

On the other hand, we did find 2018 Princess much better than 2016 Princess.

Azamara is not a fair comparison since it's 690 passengers and all inclusive, it's a better cruise experience and is not a mass market line.

Well the results followed our opinions.  Disney is our fave followed by Princess.

Disney is much more expensive than Princess though?

Yes it is. Plus it’s apples and oranges. 

But extremely well  organized.

Yes . A number of times. It may have something to do with the identity crisis Celebrity is experiencing. IMHO, the cannot figure out whether they want to be a luxury line or a mass market line.
