It would be interesting to find out the number of travel agents who actually bothered to vote. My guess would be less than 60%
Be interesting to see how tight the voting was.
These votes are not really really for us the consumer....they are more a well done slap on the back for the cruise lines benefit (IMHO)
There are so many different organisations giving their version of the best in cruises....some very biased and yet others are honest & independent views that it is almost meaningless to me.
I'm guessing that most British/Spanish or German cruise lines were probably excluded and even though I have never been on an Aida ship they are meant to be pretty good.
so maybe it would be fairer to show all the cruiselines voted for in this traveltrade awards so we can judge the bias ?
Oh and I do realise that this was the readers awards but do they not take an interest in all cruiselines or is it just the mainly american ships they get used to ?
I would be interested to know the cruiselines voted for in "the best cruise line in europe." I wonder if they could think of more than six ?
