Disney Cruise Line Takes #1 Spots in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Cruise Line Rankings for the Seventh Year in a Row

bdcl1

For the seventh year in a row, Disney Cruise Line has earned number one spots in the Best Cruise Lines for Families and Best Cruise Lines in the Caribbean categories of the U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Cruise Line rankings.

These annual rankings celebrate the very best of the best and recognize how our fantastic teams continue to outdo themselves each and every year. In the words of our Disney Cruise Line President Jeff Vahle, “The energy and enthusiasm our Crew Members bring to their roles is the driving force behind why Disney is such a trusted name in cruising.”

U.S. News & World Report rates more than 150 cruise ships based on an analysis of expert and user opinions that factor in traveler type, overall cruise ship quality, reputation in the industry, types of itineraries, approval ratings and more.

There is so much passion and planning that goes into creating the perfect ocean-going vacation for each member of the family, but what is the best thing about a Disney cruise for you? Is it seeing the Broadway-style shows in the Walt Disney Theater or splashing along our amazing “water coaster” at sea? For me, it’s watching the waves roll in from the comfort of a swaying hammock at our island paradise, Disney Castaway Cay. And, I will never miss an opportunity (and you shouldn’t either) to indulge in a delicious brunch at Palo, our chic adult-exclusive restaurant.

Hope to see you around the ship real soon!

Since we first set sail in 1998, Disney Cruise Line has delivered incredible family vacation experiences that combine the magic of Disney with the wonder of exploring different parts of the world. From Broadway-style productions inspired by classic Disney tales and dedicated spaces for kids and adults to signature dining and spa experiences, Disney Cruise Line offers something for every member in your family. For a full list of this year’s U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Cruise Line rankings, visit U.S. News 2020 Best Cruises Guides.
