THE 2017 “BEST AT SEA” AWARDS

Seabourn Dining Legend B

Searching the internet does not enable the consumer to truly differentiate between the quality claims made by the top thirty cruise lines. Our “Best At Sea” Ratings ratings have been designed to make this task easier. Our Awards are based on evaluations from the most respected industry and consumer media sources, our own personal Churchill & Turen Ltd. ship evaluations, and written evaluation reports from our exclusive CSI Inspection Corps, each of whom has sailed multiple top-tier lines. The opinions or comments of unknown or unqualified web site visitors are not used in any of our evaluations. Our ratings are not reader-generated opinion polls. We believe that they represent the best synthesis of professional industry evaluations and reports from a carefully selected roster of discerning worldwide travelers with five star cruise experience.
