Best-of-the Best Luxury Cruise Awards 2019: Ocean ships (251-750 passengers)

It’s a hat-trick for Regent Seven Seas, which has won this category for three years in a row.

Judges likened the onboard experience to an exclusive club, akin to being on a private yacht.

In a very close contest, Silversea rated well for its suites, service, wellness offerings and itineraries.

Finalists: Azamara Club Cruises, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, Oceania Cruises, Paul Gauguin Cruises, Ponant Yacht Cruises & Expeditions
