Carnival Wins ‘Best Domestic Cruise Line’ Award for Eighth Consecutive Year

MIAMI, Dec. 14, 2023 – Carnival Cruise Line was a big winner in Travel Weekly’s Readers’ Choice Awards, taking home top honors in four categories: Best Family Cruise Line, Best Group Program, Best Short Itinerary and Best Domestic Cruise Line for the eighth year in a row.

To accept the awards during a ceremony in New York City on Wednesday, Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy was joined by Ken Tate, Carnival’s chief commercial officer, and Adolfo Perez, senior vice president of global sales and trade marketing, at the awards ceremony in New York City on Wednesday.

“As America’s Cruise Line, we are honored to be recognized for the eighth consecutive year as best domestic cruise line and best family cruise line, along with other great accolades that align with our mission to deliver memorable cruise vacations for millions of guests who sail with us throughout the year.  What makes these acknowledgements even more remarkable is that they come from Travel Weekly readers – experts in our industry,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “These awards underscore the work of our dedicated team of 40,000 employees who consistently deliver the unforgettable experiences that our guests cherish on each voyage.”

Carnival’s honor of Best Domestic Cruise Line speaks to its wide range of itineraries across 26 ships, with a variety of sailings from 14 convenient homeports across the United States. Carnival operates from more homeports than any other cruise line, and roughly half of the population is within a five-hour drive to one of them.
