Disney Cruise Line Takes Top Three In World's Best Ships Poll

When Condé Nast comes out with a readers' poll, cruise travelers worldwide take notice. To be mentioned near the top of their list is a sought-after award worth bragging about. In the February edition of Condé Nast Traveler, Disney Cruise Line found plenty to be proud of as three of their four ships ranked in the top three places in the large cruise ship category.

Beating out Celebrity Eclipse and Celebrity Equinox to round out the top five, classic Disney Cruise ships Disney Magic and Disney Wonder took the first and second spots, respectively, followed by 2011's Disney Dream in third place.

"With four ships in our fleet, more families than ever before can set sail on a Disney Cruise Line vacation filled with imaginative fun for the kids and exciting family time for all," said Karl Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line in a SILive report. "We're thrilled that the experiences our cast and crew members deliver at sea continue to be recognized as outstanding by our guests."

It was all a part of Condé Nast's 100 Best Cruise Ships In the World, a reader poll ranking travel experiences with categories of small ships, medium ships, large ships and river cruise ships.

Interestingly, it was Disney Cruise Line's two older ships, Disney Magic and Disney Wonder that took top honors followed closely by 2011's Disney Dream with the latest, greatest version of what Disney does at sea, Disney Fantasy trailing in eighth place. Not that eight place is bad mind you – just not quite as magical.
