Cruise Lines – Can’t Decide Which Line to Take? See How They Rate

27 October 2017 | By admin in Cruise Lines, Reviews and Ratings

When you’re looking for Caribbean cruise deals, I’m sure you’d like to know how the different cruise lines rate. The following ratings were derived from published cruiser reviews and government documents. Each cruise line is rated in 12 categories, so you can see which ones rate higher in areas that are important to you.

The list covers 22 carriers that travel to the Caribbean. In each category below, I’m listing the top 8 cruise lines. Some cruise companies didn’t make the list because they had less than 10 passenger votes. Those names with *** attached had more than 10 votes but less than 50, so the data could potentially have a higher error rate.
