Princess Cruises Named Best Large Cruise Ship and Family Cruise in USA Today’s ‘10Best” Readers’ Choice Awards

Awards Based on Online Surveys of Experienced Cruisers in a Wide Range of Categories

Nominations for the 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards were selected by a panel of cruise experts, with USA Today readers asked to rank cruise lines in a variety of product and service-based categories.

Ranked No. 1 as “Best Large Cruise Ship,” 3,660-guest Sky Princess was recognized for its stunning interiors and array of onboard choices that include a wide array of balcony staterooms, culinary options for every taste, its signature European-style multi-level Piazza, inviting jazz club and one of the best wine bars afloat. Sister ship, Enchanted Princess, also earned the No. 3 spot in this same category.

Regal Princess was ranked No. 1 as the “Best Cruise Ship for Families” for its numerous kid-friendly features, including Camp Discovery Youth Center with dedicated kids’ spaces for three different age ranges, dozens of connecting staterooms and expansive Family Suites applauded with plenty of space to watch over the kids while also enjoying some privacy. Also popular with kids and adults alike is SeaWalk, a glass-bottomed walkway extending 28 feet over the ship’s edge and providing spectacular views.

Princess Cruises is the world’s most iconic cruise brand, known for its co-starring television role on “The Love Boat.” Millions of guests every year enjoy dream vacations in the most sought-after destinations on the largest ships that offer elite service personalization and simplicity, customary of smaller ships.
