Results of 2012 Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards are derived from a survey of the magazine’s subscribers. This year, 46,476 readers responded to the survey, which asked them to rate the world’s best cruise lines, cities, hotels, airlines, and more. In the river ship category, readers rated their experiences based on the ships’ activities/facilities, cabins, crew/service, design/layout, food/dining, itineraries/schedule, and shore excursions.
