2022's Best Cruise Lines of the Year Named by Cruise Critic
According to Cruise Critic's Editors: "Norwegian Prima continues what the line does best and made the entire experience more upscale. Guests will appreciate Norwegian Prima's high-end décor and modern cabins – all paired with new thrills, fun shows and fantastic dining choices."
According to Cruise Critic's Editors: "Fresh and modern, Virgin's dining program has something for everyone. Virgin caters to all tastes, at all hours -- and best of all, every venue is included in your fare."
According to Cruise Critic's Editors: "Carnival offers a moderately priced cruise vacation that doesn't nickel-and-dime passengers. Popular venues are provided free of charge, drinks are reasonably priced and much of the line's entertainment options are entirely free."
According to Cruise Critic Editors: "It's hard to beat this western Canadian homeport for sheer beauty and convenience. The city's vibrant dining scene and historic attractions are easily walkable from the pier."
According to Cruise Critic Editors: "If it's pampering you want, Silversea delivers. From the spacious and beyond comfy suites, to the personalized butler service, Silversea treats you to an all-inclusive luxury experience, even before you board."
According to Cruise Critic Editors: "With Emerald Azzurra, Emerald Cruises has staked its claim in the world of luxury cruising -- with sleek, modern spaces, gorgeous outdoor enclaves and staterooms that are decked out with anything a guest could need."
According to Cruise Critic Editors: "The line's World Cruise and its segments maximize time in marquee cities, while European, Caribbean and other cruises bring you to the next cool port you've yet to discover – all complemented by a new shore excursion program."
According to Cruise Critic Editors: "The ships offer the right balance of exploration, learning and comfort, and Viking doesn't miss a detail – even creating one-of-a-kind Special Operations Boats."
According to Cruise Critic Editors: "Quark Expeditions specializes in maximizing your expedition adventure. Kayaking, mountain biking, trekking – even Arctic hot-air ballooning: However you want to be active at the poles, Quark will make it happen."
According to Cruise Critic Editors: "Hurtigruten has specialized in Arctic and Antarctica travel for decades, but what's new is the line's upgraded expedition fleet members, which combine terrific science offerings and sustainable hybrid battery power with more inclusions and greater comfort."
