The US News & World Report has announced its annual ranking of best cruise lines for 2022. These rankings are intended to provide up-to-date information on major cruise lines for future travelers. This year’s report also included a survey that indicated a desire to navigate among regular travelers.
As the United States and the world begin to reopen to international travel following pandemic-related restrictions, U.S. News surveyed travelers to understand the effects of COVID-19 on cruise ship sentiment. The report found that cruises, both for the first time and for many years, are booked at higher levels than before the pandemic.
In a good sign for the continued recovery of the cruise line industry, the survey data also revealed that of the frequent travelers who indicated they would cross again, 20% are already registered for their next navigation.
“While most travel routes have been affected during the coronavirus pandemic, the cruise industry has seen most challenges,” said Nicola Wood, travel editor at US News.

Disney Cruise Line was once again recognized as the best cruise line for families. DCL has won this award every year since US News began classifying cruise lines. In addition, for the eighth consecutive year, Disney is also the No. 1 best cruise line in the Caribbean.
The ranking of the best cruise lines is based on the level of service of each cruise line determined by the editors of US News & World Report, the scores given by travelers and a health score based on the inspection scores of the Centers for to U.S. Disease Control and Prevention.
