Carnival made the following announcement in a press release 1/11/16 (also see my other posts on Carnival and the Carnival Breeze):
Carnival Named ‘Best Cruise Line’ And ‘Best Cruise Ship For Dining’ In USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards — Carnival Cruise Line took top honors in two categories in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards, earning accolades for “Best Cruise Line” and “Best Cruise Ship For Dining” (Carnival Breeze). The awards were based on nominations from a team of cruise industry experts and the winners were determined by an online vote by USA Today readers.
Carnival earned “Best Cruise Line” honors for its affordable, high quality vacation experience that offers a variety of onboard features and facilities, from the exclusive Seuss at Sea program in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises to luxurious spas and hilarious comedy shows at the Punchliner Comedy Club presented by George Lopez.
Carnival Breeze was named “Best Cruise Ship For Dining” for its wide range of tantalizing culinary options, including Bonsai Sushi, the elegant Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse, the Cucina del Capitano family-style Italian restaurant, and hand-crafted burgers and fries at Guy’s Burger Joint developed in tandem with Food Network star Guy Fieri.
“Receiving this recognition is a wonderful validation of all the hard work our shipboard and shoreside teams put into providing our guests with fun, memorable vacations, which, of course, includes offering an array of delicious dining choices that are considered a highlight of a Carnival cruise,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president.
