TOP 10 CRUISE SHIPS

Last week’s post by australiancruisingnews.com focussed on Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas, the world’s 6th largest cruise ship, which will spend her first summer in Australian waters.

Within hours of that posting readers were asking which other cruise ships are rated in that Top 10 list.

As it happens, the international cruise line Royal Caribbean is the list’s major player with eight of its fleet in the Top 10. The only other player is Norwegian Cruise Line which has two of its growing fleet, Norwegian Escape and Norwegian Epic, on the list. That cruise line was last month named Europe’s leading cruise line for the ninth consecutive year by the World Travel Awards, and gained the world’s best cruise spa award.

Norwegian Cruise Line, which has two of the world's largest ships on the Top Ten list, is renowned for its distinctive hull design.
