Celebrity Cruises is the best cruise line for the money and the best in the Mediterranean, Crystal Cruises is the best for luxury and couples, and Disney Cruise Line is the best for families, according to new rankings from U.S. News & World Report released this week. The winners are ranked on ship quality, reputation among travelers, U.S. CDC health assessments, price class and itinerary offerings, among other criteria.

Celebrity’s win as the best value was its first time taking the gold.

Disney’s top rank as best cruise line for families, along with the best cruise line in the Caribbean, marks the fourth consecutive year it earned the top spot.
