Home/Cruise news, Family cruises/Your survey says . . .

Specialist travel agent cruises.co.uk has published a survey revealing which ships are best and worst, according to its customers.
The results are based on cruise reviews and ratings provided by passengers – everyone who submits a review to their website receives a copy of the Berlitz cruise guide.
Of their one million customers, more than 12,000 have offered their opinions.
Cunard comes out on top as the best cruise line, and Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas – one of the three biggest cruise ships in the world, and sailing out of Southampton during the summer – was named as best for families and best for entertainment.
All five Thomson ships featured in the top 10 for entertainment, and niche operator Oceania’s boutique vessel Insignia won the categories for best ship, service and food.
A word of caution, though. Sorting the survey results on the company’s website puts a ship called F3 at the top of the pile. The ship, which will be the Norwegian Epic, it was announced last week, is still being built, and it was just one user review which put it top of the heap.
Treat the survey results with care, then. But take note of those with large numbers of reviews, such as Queen Mary 2 ( 514), Navigator of the Seas (362), Ventura (538) and Island Star (302).
At least you can see who has been voting with their feet, and their wallets.
