    Crystal still tops in cruise line rankings with Travel & Leisure

    Travel magazines all want to play the "who's best" game and are always coming up with Top-10 lists to rank the world's best hotels, airlines, museums and so on.

    While readers know these lists are strictly the opinion of the magazines, they want to know who finished on top.

    Travel + Leisure magazine surveys its readers every year on a variety of travel topics and has just published the latest results including their rankings of the top cruise lines.

    As one reader pointed out, this year's results seem to be from a demographic that has some big bucks to spare since they rate ships in the luxury and deluxe categories near the top.

    While cruise lines move up and down the Top 10 charts every year, there are some which fall off completely to be replaced by new ones. This year, there are three additions, two from the small ships and one from the large ships categories. Dropping off the large ships list this year was NCL and departing from the small ship category was Peter Deilmann and Star Clippers.

    New to the list of large ships was Azamara, although their ships only carry about 700 passengers. In the smaller passenger category, Avalon and Tauck moved into the Top 10. Tauck and Avalon's appearance indicates a growing interest in the riverboat sector.

    The magazine divides its rankings into large and small categories with small being cruise lines that have ships that carry 400 passengers or fewer.
