True North adventure cruises named as one of the world’s top cruise lines

Cruise Critic awards the top cruise lines in 18 regions across the globe in its annual Cruiser’s Choice Destination Awards

Cruise Critic®, the world’s leading cruise review site has announced the winners of its fourth annual Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards, naming the world’s most popular cruise destinations – as well as the best cruise lines in each region. The awards are based entirely on consumer ratings that are submitted with reviews on the Cruise Critic site.

True North Adventure Cruises was named as one of the best cruise lines in the world, winning Best Small Ship Cruise Line in Australia and New Zealand.

Winners of these respected awards stand out amongst the lines that sail in each region, receiving the highest ratings from guests who sailed with the line over the past year and shared their experiences on Cruise Critic.

“For most travellers, the decision of where to cruise is made before they think about all the other pieces of the cruise planning process,” explains Colleen McDaniel, Editor-in-Chief of Cruise Critic. “And for those looking for incredible cruise destinations and experiences, there’s no better way to narrow your options than by seeing which destinations and cruise lines are rated most highly by cruisers who have already been there and, done that.”
