awarded Variety Cruises
at the number #3 of the best Intimate Ocean Cruises. Thank you to all who voted- we celebrate our staff and the communities we visit, who allow us to go deeper!
“A new classification designed to honor the smallest oceangoing vessels, the best intimate-ship ocean cruise lines category recognizes ships with fewer than 150 cabins. More nimble than their larger counterparts, these petite ships often take travelers to farther-flung and less-frequented ports, from tropical destinations to both poles.
Every year for our World’s Best Awards survey, T+L asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Readers rated individual cruise ships on their cabins and facilities, food, service, itineraries and destinations, excursions and activities, and value. Those assessments were combined to generate results for the cruise lines in six categories, including river cruising.
In third place: the eight-ship Greek-owned line Variety Cruises, which another reader lauded for its “relaxed, very friendly manner.”
