The cruise industry has made a triumphant comeback since pandemic restrictions were lifted, with the industry expected to generate $25.14 billion in revenue by the end of 2023.

And according to a new report by Conde Nast Traveler, it looks like cruising is still a top vacation choice.

According to a new survey by the outlet, 47% of people said that they would be interested in setting sail on a ship, even though only 27% of readers went on a cruise last year.

Conde Nast Traveler readers ranked the top cruise lines of all sizes:

  • Norwegian Cruise Lines took the top spot for Mega Ships (over 4,000) passengers, with Royal Caribbean International coming in second place.
  • In the Large Ships category (2,500-4,000 passengers) the top spot was Virgin Voyages, followed by Disney Cruise Line, and the luxury British line, Cunard.
  • Viking cruises secured the top spot in both the River Ships and Expedition Ships categories.

Viking also earned top honors for its food and beverage service in a new Food & Wine report, where it was ranked the No. 1 cruise line for foodies — as each ship comes stocked with an onboard herb garden, cooking classes, and no extra fees to dine at the fancier restaurants on board.
