I’m hoping next year to go on a cruise, and if you share my love of traveling and love that idea for yourself, here are the best cruise lines for 2023.

It’s amazing to me that of all the traveling I’ve done, I have yet to go on a cruise. I have some friends that have gone that didn’t care for it, but for the most part, it’s been mostly rave reviews. It’s easy to see why cruising is so popular—there’s something for everyone! Whether you’re looking for relaxation or adventure (or both!). You can visit multiple destinations without having to worry about packing and unpacking your luggage each time you move locations. Plus, cruises offer plenty of opportunities for fun excursions and onboard events such as game shows and karaoke nights.

U.S. News & World Report have put out their 2023 rankings of the best cruise lines. They looked at 17 cruise lines and considered things like ship quality, ratings by travelers, ratings by experts and health ratings based on sanitation scores. They ranked cruise lines in six categories: Best Cruise Lines for the Money, Best Cruise Lines for Families, Best Cruise Lines for Couples, Best Cruise Lines in the Caribbean, Best Cruise Lines in the Mediterranean and Best Luxury Cruise Lines.

Especially being in Florida with so many port options, cruising is a great option when it comes to planning your next vacation. With lots of ships to choose from, heading out on the open water allows travelers of all ages to enjoy an unforgettable experience at sea! So what are you waiting for? Start planning your dream voyage today!
