Proving popular with UK cruisers, Norwegian Cruise Line sailed away with eight awards. Of the line's Large Ship category award wins, Norwegian Spirit took four, including Best Overall, while Norwegian Escape, which launched in 2015, won Best Entertainment. The line's three Mid-Size Ship awards all went to Norwegian Sun, including Best Entertainment. These successes follow Norwegian Cruise Line's recent announcement that from 2017, for the first time in seven years, the UK will receive a dedicated ship sailing from Southampton.

Oceania's Riviera created big waves amongst UK cruisers, not only holding onto its five Mid-Size Ship class wins from 2015, including Best Overall, but also added a sixth award for Best Dining. MSC Cruises' MSC Lirica was highlighted as being the Best Value Mid-Size Ship.

In the Small Ship category, Regent's Seven Seas Voyager was named Best Overall and also awarded Best Embarkation and Best Shore Excursions. Viking Ocean Cruises, which launched in 2015, has already made a significant splash with first ship Viking Star, which won seven accolades including Best Dining and Best Service.

A new award for 2016, Best for First-Timers, went to P&O Cruises' Arcadia, which offers a variety of itineraries including destinations such as San Francisco, Auckland, Hong Kong, and Cape Town as part of a new world cruise offering in 2016.  

"These awards offer a valuable stamp of approval from travellers, and celebrate the lines which are truly excelling," explained Adam Coulter, UK editor, Cruise Critic.  "The feedback and reviews shared on Cruise Critic help travellers to be better informed and feel more confident about their decisions, making it easier to plan a great cruise holiday."

The UK Cruise Critic Cruisers' Choice Awards are awarded in three ship classes, based on passenger capacity (Large: 2,000+ passengers; Mid-Size: 1,200 to 1,999 passengers; Small: 1,199 or fewer passengers) and are calculated using the ratings submitted with each Cruise Critic member review.
