2014 Cruisers' Choice Awards

(8:43 a.m. EST) -- Disney Cruise Line's Disney Fantasy was named Best Large Ship for the second year in a row in Cruise Critic's 2014 Cruisers' Choice Awards. The ship also took the top spot in the Large Ship Best Cabins, Best Dining and Best for Families. The line took home nine other first place awards including Best Midsize Ship for Disney Wonder.

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
