Princess Cruises Continue to Receive Awards
Each year it seems that Princess Cruises picks up their fair share of awards. And 2008 was no exception. As the various awards are doled out, the Princess name pops up again and again.
The 2008 Cruise Critic Editor’s Picks Awards were announced a short time ago and Princess was a big honoree.
Of the 10 categories that are awarded, Princess took home three – "Best for Romance", Best for Weddings" and "Best Multi-Generational" (which explains our Golden Princess cruise vacation with our parents and our kids!). Honoring the top cruise lines in the world these awards point out the top performers.
As well, the travel agent readers of Recommend magazine again awarded Princess the "Best Cruise Line – Itineraries" prize having previously received the honor for the last four years running. This award recognizes the dedication Princess places on taking their passengers to interesting and exciting destinations all over the world.
The Travel Weekly readers have honored Princess with the "Best Cruise Line in Alaska" award. Princess has received this award five times in the last six years!
As I had mentioned earlier, a couple of years ago we had taken a cruise on the Golden Princess with our parents and our grown-up kids. This was a Southern Caribbean cruise with fabulous port stops and great weather. The reasons for the Itinerary and the Multi-Generational awards were experienced here.
This year we just completed a cruise on the newest jewel in the Princess Cruiselines’ fleet the Ruby Princess. We sailed on a Western Caribbean itinerary that offered ports with fantastic beaches – the reason we cruise the Caribbean in the cold and snowy Canadian winters. Although the weather was not terrific to start with, the cruise ended up with great weather and some fantastic beaches. Itinerary definitely played a big part here.
As well, we saw that there had been at least three weddings take place on this cruise. That’s pretty amazing for any cruise. There were also a few honeymooners on board. I guess that exemplifies the awards for Best for Romance and Best for Weddings.
