Share this:

Disney Cruise Line has taken home the gold in 2 of US News & World Report’s 2022 Best Cruise Line Rankings – Best Cruise Line for Families and best cruise line in the Caribbean.

The global authority in rankings and consumer advice evaluated 162 ships from 17 top cruise lines across a variety of categories. The rankings help travellers select the best cruise by brand, region, traveller type and budget.

Disney Cruise Line remains at the top of the list for Best Cruise Line for Families, a spot held since U.S. News began ranking cruise lines. Additionally, for the eighth consecutive year, Disney is also the top Best Cruise Line in the Caribbean.

Mari Mendez, External Communications Manager at Disney Cruise Line said, “We’re honoured that U.S. News & World Report has recognized us with these two awards for eight consecutive years, and are so proud of our amazing cast and crew members who make awards like this possible.”

U.S. News surveyed travellers to understand the effects of COVID-19 on cruiser sentiments and found that cruisers – both first-time and longtime – are booked at higher levels than before the pandemic. U.S. News survey data also revealed that of the frequent travellers who indicated that they would cruise again, 20% are already signed up for their next sailing.

Overall, Disney Cruise Line’s ships maintained a respectable ranking. Out of the 162 ships ranked, the Disney Fantasy is in a tie for 8th place with 5 other ships. The Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, and Disney Dream are all tied with 11 other ships for the 14th spot.

Each ship is scored by experts, travellers, and given a health rating based on the survey’s methodology. Below are the scores for each of the Disney Cruise Line ships along with the cruise line’s overall score on a 5-point scale.
