Largest Luxury Cruise Brands by Region
Largest Luxury Brands By Regional Deployment
I was reading articles in my feed reader a few days ago and came across this interesting article from the folks at Cruise Industry News.
There are 19 key sailing regions around the world, and for 2019, these companies are the largest operators by region when it comes to the luxury cruise market:
- Caribbean: Viking Ocean
- Mediterranean: Viking Ocean
- Asia-Pacific: Silversea
- Northern Europe: Viking Ocean
- Alaska: Regent
- Australia: Viking Ocean
- West Coast: Crystal
- South America: Silversea
- Canary Islands: Hapag-Lloyd
- Indian Ocean/Red Sea/Middle East: Seabourn
- Bermuda: Regent
- Trans-Atlantic: Viking Ocean
- Canada/New England: Seabourn
- Hawaii: Crystal
- Africa: Ponant
- Panama Canal: Windstar
- U.S. Domestic Waterways (Great Lakes): Ponant
- Antarctica: Ponant
- World Cruises: Viking Ocean
While this likely falls into the “interesting things to know” category vs. some great shedding of light from on high; I did find it interesting to see what cruise lines are dominating the various regions of the world.
And, I suppose if you are interested in sailing one of these regions, this list might come in handy as a “first place to look” tool. Biggest doesn’t always equal best, but frankly, these are all excellent ocean cruise lines.
