Celebrity Cruises Celebrates Third Year at Number One

On the heels of announcing its industry- first Lawn Club on its new ship, Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Cruises today celebrates its first-place ranking in the prestigious Conde’ Nast Traveler magazine’s annual “Top Cruise Ships in the World” readers’ poll.

For the third consecutive year, Celebrity Constellation earned the number-one slot in the large-ship category. Sister ship Celebrity Summit tied for the second-place ranking, Celebrity Millennium came in third, and Celebrity Infinity tied for the sixth slots. The rankings effectively place every Millennium-class ship in the brand’s fleet in the top 10, and retain Celebrity’s position as the world’s top-rated premium cruise line.

Celebrity Century and Celebrity Galaxy tied for number 13 among the 27 ships considered the world’s best in the large-ship category.

“We’re thrilled and honored that the knowledgeable travelers who subscribe to Conde’ Nast Traveler continue to appreciate the Celebrity experience, and the service with style the extraordinary staff on every ship is dedicated to offering our guests,” said Celebrity’s President and CEO Dan Hanrahan.

Conde’ Nast Traveler subscribers rated a total of 298 ships on a 100-point scale in seven categories: itineraries, shore excursions, crew/service, cabins, food/dining, activities/facilities, and design/layout. Only ships that received a required minimum number of responses were eligible to be included in the rankings.
