This is not just another World’s Best list; LTI – Luxury Travel Intelligence has spent a year creating the perfect assessment process for the luxury cruise industry, to help you sell the best option for your clients.

Knowing each and every cruise line your agency sells in depth can be quite overwhelming and it can be even tougher staying up to date with all the news, reviews and future developments.

Thankfully, LTI has you covered with up-to-the-minute reporting and well-researched world’s best lists, using a rigorously defined algorithm that analyses 124 significant touchpoints, each having its own weighted score value. The maximum accumulative score is 4511, which is then reflected as a percentage, making up a clear, informative list of luxury.

World’s Best Luxury Cruise Lines 2019

Regent Seven Seas

Michael Crompton, Founder of LTI explains, “Our 124 touch points relate to the overall company performance, rather than its individual ships. It’s all about the cruise line’s ability to deliver: its passion, commitment, ethos and values, as well as the quality of its management and staff. Investment and how well it is executed are also major factors, particularly in new ships and the refurbishment of existing ones.”

Let’s take a look at the leading companies in luxury cruising, from LTI’s findings…

1. Seabourn 79.6%

2. Crystal 77.8%

3. Regent Seven Seas 76.9%

4. Silversea 75.4%

5. Viking Ocean 73.8%

6. Oceania 71.0%

7. Azamara 69.4%

8. Cunard 67.7%

LTI’s next luxury cruise report, produced exclusively for media and due in June 2020, will focus on rating individual ships and this could produce a very different outcome.

From January 2020, LTI members may access detailed, live reports on individual ships, from our onboard researchers.
