Oceania Cruises Takes Top Honours In Cruise Critic's 2013 Cruisers' Choice Awards

The 2013 Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards for the U.S. and the U.K. were announced on February 27 and Oceania Cruises sailed away in the mid-sized ship class, winning in a dozen categories.

The company’s newest ship, Riviera, (pictured) took seven top awards in the U.K., including Best Overall Mid-Sized Ship and Best Value for the Money, along with top honors for Best Cabins, Best Dining, Best for Embarkation, Best Public Rooms and Best Service.  Additionally, U.S. cruisers placed Riviera at the top for Best Cruise to the Mediterranean.

Marina took away three top awards in the U.S. for Best Dining, Best Public Rooms and Best Cabins and won Best for Fitness in the U.K.

“As the 2013 Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards are based entirely on reviews submitted by consumers for cruises taken in the past year, it is an honour to receive this recognition from guests the world over,” said Kunal S. Kamlani, the line’s president.  “It’s extremely gratifying to know that our brand proposition to deliver an exceptional cruise experience at an incredible value resonates with travellers.”

Bernard Carter, Oceania Cruises' MD for UK & Europe, said "This is an exceptional accolade for Oceania Cruises in this, the year when we celebrate our 10th anniversary. We are delighted that cruise clients have recognised our efforts with Riviera being voted top honours in 7 out of the 11 available categories in the Cruise Reviewer Awards - and with her sister, Marina also featuring strongly. We very much appreciate that the efforts of our founder and CEO Frank Del Rio and his team to create a truly unique experience have been acknowledged by our UK guests".
