<p>Princess Cruises is ranked 5th with 177 monthly searches for every 100,000 people. The cruise line is smaller than most but has 15 different ships that go anywhere from <a rel="noopener noreferrer external nofollow" href=" target="_blank">Alaska to Japan</a>.</p>
<p>According to the report from Cruise Mummy, "Princess Cruises have a wide variety of activities on board including enrichment shows due to their partnership with Discovery."</p>

<p><strong>Average monthly searches: 240.43</strong></p>
<p>Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), which is ranked second, has seen a dramatic increase in the number of searches per month. Norwegian Cruise Line has four ships more than Princess, and some of them can hold up to 4,000 passengers.</p>
<p>"NCL has a selection of destinations, including Africa, Asia, and Europe, and offers additional onboard activities, including go-karting and laser tag," according to Cruise Mummy.</p>
<p>The cruise line also offers <a rel="noopener noreferrer external nofollow" href=" target="_blank">various deals</a> including on-board dining credits, alcoholic beverages, special WiFi packages, and discounts on excursions.</p>
<p>"Cruising is still seen as more luxurious than flying to a hotel, and depending on factors like the cruise line, itinerary, and cabin, it's cheaper than most package holidays," says Fielding.</p>

<p>It's not surprising that Disney Cruises takes third place, as it's a popular option for those traveling with young children.</p>
<p>Disney Cruises offers four- to six-day trips, which is ideal for children. While Disney <a rel="noopener noreferrer external nofollow" href=" target="_blank">only has six smaller ships</a>, the onboard experience is sure to be a magical one, with plenty of kid-friendly entertainment.</p>

<p><strong>Average monthly searches: 669.77</strong></p>
<p>With their transatlantic and transpacific offerings and a good mix of <a rel="noopener noreferrer external nofollow" href=" target="_blank">adult-only and kid-friendly entertainment</a>, Carnival Cruises takes second place.</p>
<p>"It wasn't until the 1960s that cruise lines started to put an emphasis on the entertainment aspect and today a cruise ship is a hotel, cinema, theater, and holiday resort all in one," explains Fielding.</p>
<p>And if entertainment isn't enough, Carnival's beverage packages are priced at $59.95 per person per day, with a reasonable service charge added to the total, according to Cruise Mummy.</p>

<p><strong>Average monthly searches: 868.77</strong></p>
<p>Royal Caribbean is the top of the list, with an average of 868.77 searches per month. Not only is the brand the largest cruise line by revenue, according to Cruise Mummy, but it also utilizes <a rel="noopener noreferrer external nofollow" href=" target="_blank">Coco Cay</a>, its private island located in the Bahamas, as a popular destination.</p>
<p>"Companies are now looking to make cruising more environmentally friendly and accessible to more passengers," adds Fielding. "Ships are getting bigger and though some ports are restricting access, cruises are still a popular choice for those who want a luxury experience."</p>
<p>Royal Caribbean has some of the biggest ships out there, and they're still growing. They have ports in North America, Europe and the Caribbean.</p>
