The 2017 Cruise Critic UK Cruisers’ Choice Awards are based entirely on UK reviews posted to the Cruise Critic website.

UK editor Adam Coulter said: “Overall, the cruise industry excels in its offerings to travellers – from phenomenal entertainment to exceptional service – and these awards highlight the cruise lines that travellers rank as particularly outstanding, in order to assist those planning a cruise.

“Travellers increasingly consult consumer reviews and photos for guidance when researching, and these awards aim to streamline this process further.”

The three ship classes are based on passenger capacity (Large: 2,000+ passengers; Mid-Size: 1,200 to 1,999 passengers; Small: 1,200 or fewer passengers).
