Which cruise line is the best? It's a question that shows up in our inboxes and on our Facebook and Twitter pages all the time. So, for the second year in a row, we're naming names -- and highlighting the best of the best -- in the U.S. in our 2009 Cruise Critic Editors' Picks Awards.
For 2009, Cruise Critic has picked the world's top cruise lines in 31 categories. With more categories and more winners than in 2008, we'll tell you who's the "Best Family Cruise Line," "Best for Romance," "Best for First-Timers" and best for you -- whatever your travel passion may be.
