This 2019 saw the triumph of Celebrity Equinox, the diamond point and expression of the luxury of the Celebrity Cruise company. The flagship launched in 2009, but completely renovated in 2018, was awarded the prestigious "Best Cabins" award, as well as "Best Fitness and Leisure Cruise Ship" and "Best Food on Board". It has also stood out in the "Best Cruise Ship for Travelers at their First Time" ranking. A victory due to her enchanting sophistication and endless comforts that go hand in hand with countless entertainments. The Celebrity Equinox has ten dining rooms, a real lawn and spacious and well-equipped cabins. Its AquaSpa wellness centre, inspired by exotic cultures, allows direct access from the cabins for total relaxation.
Of course, there are many different awards in the cruise sector, but one of the most important is the "Best cruise line for families", i.e. the best cruise line for families, which is awarded by the authoritative magazine Pick Awards. In 2019, the Symphony of the Seas by Royal Caribbean took first place, thanks to its battle horses such as the ten-storey Ultimate Abyss courage test and the hilarious twin surf simulators. From November you can also battle in the cosmic darkness with Laser Tag guns, and play in the revolutionary Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade room. On board you'll even find the reproduction of Central Park, a 45-metre slide and a climbing wall, in other words, the almost 7,000 passengers it can accommodate will be able to indulge in a thousand ways.
Last year, however, the best company for families was the MSC Cruises, thanks to the launch of its new flagship Seaview that has one of its strengths in the elegance shown by the vast external promenade that surrounds the entire perimeter of the ship. This allows the lucky passengers on board to enjoy an innovative experience of contact with the sea. Seaview has also thought of the little ones with the Family Explorer Club creating a virtual treasure hunt to better know the destinations to visit in a creative and exciting way. Entertainment on board is guaranteed for all 5000 passengers.
Then there is the latest pearl of the Costa Cruises, the Costa Smeralda. The ship is 337 m long and has a total of 2,612 cabins to carry up to 6522 passengers. It has a video game room, a two-storey theatre, saunas, the renowned Samsara wellness centre, 19 bars and 11 restaurants to enjoy the culinary specialities of the areas of the world you are visiting. There is also a disco, casino and an impressive water park. It is also the first ship in the fleet to feature a museum completely dedicated to Italian design called Co.De.
