The Cruisers' Choice Awards are based solely on the ratings of everyday cruisers who post ship reviews on Cruise Critic. Awards are based on reviews submitted for cruises taken during 2013.
Seabourn Cruise Line's Seabourn Quest also was a big winner, winning Best Ship in the Small Ship Category, along with Best Public Rooms and Best Value-for-Money.
"The Cruisers' Choice Awards are a fantastic honor for cruise lines to receive as they're based on personal experiences shared by cruisers themselves," Carolyn Spencer Brown, Cruise Critic editor in chief, said. "This list of winners serves as a seal of approval from consumers who have sailed on these ships over the past year."
Cruisers' Choice Awards are given in three ship classes: small (1,199 passengers), midsized (1,200 - 1,999) and large (2,000+).
Other winners this year include:
Carnival Liberty -- Best Large Ship for Value for Money
Oasis of the Seas -- Best Large Ship for Fitness
Oceania Riviera -- Best Midsized Ship for Cabins
Norwegian Sun -- Best Midsized Ship for Value for Money
Regent Seven Seas Navigator - Best Small Ship for Cabins
Crystal Serenity -- Best Small Ship for Dining
Celebrity Silhouette - Best Cruises to the Mediterranean
