Putting on my professional researcher's hat... it would be interesting to have a ranking of the number of cruises on each line taken by the survey participants. I'll bet that these figures would be skewed toward Celebrity, just as the poll results were.

JMHO.

ChucksOk- f-mattox pretty much summed it up.. the rankings webpage that Shanghai pointed to said the rankings were done from their members inputs.. So I assumed it was a subscription membership thing...

So, if what f-mattox says is true...that it is a magazine targetting more affulent people, then my original comment still holds.

What travel magazine do the younger crowd read? Not many if at all...

I've subscribed to CNT for years. I don't know if I would go as far as saying it is a snob magazine. The Perrin report is quite good and applies to people across the income spectrum. Granted, their polls do appear to be skewed towards higher end stuff. I also like the ombudsman section where they help people who got hosed while traveling.

Well I didn't mean to imply that is was a snob magazine.. But honestly, there are not too many mid-class or even upper middle class families that would choose it for a magazine subscription. I can see it for us cruise tekkies, but most people would probably only grab an issue from the news stand when they were think of a vacation.

I also didn't mean to imply it is a magazine for snobs. I think I offended ChucksOK once with a reference to "cruise snobs". Let me state here and now I don't equate money with snobbery; snobbery is an attitude that sometimes accompanies wealth, but a product or service targeted to wealthy people is not a"snob" product.
I love nice things; but I know which ones are within my grasp and which will forever be whimsical fantasies.
There is only so much time and I'd rather spend it daydreaming about the things that are possible--like my next three cruises.
Am I rambling? Sorry!

f-mattox,

As long as you bake your corn bread in an iron skillet, you'll fit in with us southerners....even those of us who get CNT!
