Azamara Tops Cruise Critic's 2013 Cruisers' Choice Awards On Both Sides Of The Atlantic

Fireworks

I’m delighted to share with you the results of the 2013 Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards.

  • Both ships tied for the #1 “Best Overall” position in the U.S./Canada markets!
  • In the U.K. the Azamara Journey scored the #1 “Best Overall” position and the Azamara Quest the #2 position!

Also we’re tops in “Value” with the Azamara Journey scoring the #1 position in both the U.S./Canada and U.K. markets, and the Azamara Quest the #2 position on both sides of the Atlantic.

Again we’re tops in “Service” with the Azamara Quest scoring the #1 position in the U.S./Canada and the Azamara Journey coming in at the #4 position. In the U.K. the Azamara Journey earned the #1 position and the Azamara Quest the #2 position. A complete scorecard for both ships in both market areas follows below. Also, you can find the full list of Cruise Critic winners here.

Carolyn Spencer Brown, Editor of Cruise Critic (www.cruisecritic.com), which is the industry's most prominent outlet for consumer-oriented cruise travel news and information, stated, "These awards are based entirely on reviews submitted by cruisers, so they offer a terrific insight into what consumers think of the ships they have sailed on."

Methodology: The 2013 rankings are based on Cruise Critic member reviews submitted during 2012. To be included, ships must have a minimum number of posted reviews and ratings in each category to be included in the top 10 list. Awards are given in three ship classes: small (no more than 1,199 passengers), midsized (1,200 – 1,999 passengers) and large (more than 2,000 passengers). The minimum number of reviews varies by ship size class. You can click here to read Cruise Critic’s complete methodology.

These latest awards validate the immense transformation that Azamara Club Cruises has undergone since our April 2010 rebranding. Loyal and seasoned Cruise Critic members in the U.S. and U.K. participated in the voting, and these Cruisers’ Choice Awards are significant recognitions for Azamara in two of our key source markets.

Furthermore, not only did Azamara Club Cruises win the top two Best Overall positions in the Small Ship category on two continents, we have garnered 35 top-5 awards out of a total of 40 possible Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards.
