Carnival Cruise Lines Wins Readers’ Choice Awards

By Mark Edward Nero

Carnival Cruise Line has taken top honors in two categories in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards, earning accolades for “Best Cruise Line” and “Best Cruise Ship For Dining” (Carnival Breeze).

The awards were based on nominations from a team of cruise industry experts and the winners were determined by an online vote by USA Today readers.

Carnival earned “Best Cruise Line” honors for its vacation experience, which offers a variety of onboard features and facilities, including the “Seuss at Sea” program in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, spas, and comedy shows at the Punchliner Comedy Club.

Carnival Breeze was named “Best Cruise Ship For Dining” based on a wide range of culinary options, including sushi, a steakhouse, a family-style Italian restaurant, and hand-crafted burgers and fries at Guy’s Burger Joint developed in tandem with Food Network star Guy Fieri.

“Receiving this recognition is a wonderful validation of all the hard work our shipboard and shoreside teams put into providing our guests with fun, memorable vacations,” said Carnival Cruises President Christine Duffy. “We would also like to thank our travel agent partners for their support in sharing the myriad benefits and exceptional value of cruise vacations with their clients,” she added.
