At a ceremony at the company’s Miami headquarters, Carnival Cruise Lines was presented with its six Porthole Cruise Magazine Readers Choice Awards from Editor-in-Chief Bill Panoff. Carnival’s awards included Best Value for the Money, Best Entertainment, Best Mexican Riviera Itineraries, Best Casinos, Best Web Site, and Best Theme Cruises.
Since the Porthole Cruise Readers Choice Awards were established in 1999, Carnival Cruise Lines has earned 115 individual honors – the most of any cruise line.
The annual awards are based on on-line and mail-in surveys of Porthole Cruise readers who are asked to rate their favorite cruise line in a variety of product- and service-related categories.
