Carnival Cruise Line earned a Silver Award for Best Cruise Line for Families and a Bronze in the Best Cruise Line Onboard Entertainment categories in Recommend magazine’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards, the publication announced today.

Recommend’s audience of travel advisors voted for their favorite destinations, hotels and resorts, tour operators, cruise lines, rail vacations, car rentals, airlines and host agencies to determine the winners in each category.

“A Carnival Cruise Line vacation is ideal for families — from our exclusive Seuss at Sea program and WaterWorks to SkyRide and Hasbro, The Game Show — and to be recognized by the readers of Recommend, who know travel better than anyone, for this and our entertainment is an incredible acknowledgement,” said Adolfo Perez, senior vice president of sales and trade marketing for Carnival. “Receiving these awards tells us that our strengths resonate with those who sell cruises as much as it does with those who buy them.”

The recognition from Recommend’s Reader’s Choice awards is especially meaningful to Carnival Cruise Line as it finalizes its $2 billion fleet enhancement program begun in 2011. The fleetwide investment has brought a consistent level of experiences, from WaterWorks aqua parks, specialty dining, entertainment, to enhanced accommodations and amenities, to the more than 5 million passengers who annually sail with the line. The program has extended the line’s popular culinary, bar and entertainment innovations and completes an “any ship, any port, any itinerary” level of service and offerings across its fleet of 26 ships that is unparalleled in the cruise industry.

For 50 years, Recommend has been helping travel agents sell travel by providing them with in-depth destination and product information. Its editors travel the globe previewing, reviewing, and crafting experiential articles that make for some of the most informative and engrossing destination content available today.

Recommend magazine is distributed to more than 50,000 travel agents throughout the United States and Canada.
