How are the cruise lines scored?

U.S. News & World Report compared 17 different cruise lines based on the following:

  • 50% of the overall score was based on verified cruise reviews from Cruiseline.com.
  • 30% of the score was based on ratings of atmosphere, facilities, activities, cabins, cuisine, and service assigned by U.S. News & World Report editors on a scale of one to five.
  • 20% of the score was based on surprise inspections by the CDC’s Vessel Sanitation Program for cruise ships that sail to and from the United States.

“This year has seen a tremendous resurgence in the popularity of cruises,” said Nicola Wood, senior travel editor at U.S. News. “After the unprecedented cruising shutdown during the peak of the pandemic, people are eager to sail the world’s oceans and tour multiple destinations in a single trip. The Best Cruise Lines rankings provide a variety of cruise recommendations, making it easy for cruisers to choose the best options for them.”
