With the search for that perfect Instagram shot becoming an increasingly important driver of travelers’ vacation decisions, Seahub has released a study on the most popular cruise lines on the social media platform. The organization has released an analysis of more than 1.8 million Instagram posts tagged on cruise ships and ports around the world to discover the most-Instagrammed cruise lines. They are:
- Royal Caribbean
- Carnival Cruise Line
- Disney Cruise Line
- Princess Cruises
- Celebrity Cruises
Seahub also broke the data down further to determine the most Instagrammed cruise ships for each line.
For Royal Caribbean that’s Harmony of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. For Carnival, it’s Carnival Vista, Carnival Breeze and Carnival Glory. Celebrity Reflection, Celebrity Eclipse and Celebrity Solstice were the top three for Celebrity Cruises, while, for Disney, the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy and Disney Wonder were most popular. Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Epic and Norwegian Breakaway were the most popular, while for Princess, passengers picked Regal Princess, Royal Princess and Crown Princess.
Seahub also analyzed the most popular cruise destinations on Instagram. The Caribbean was the clear winner here, with the British Virgin Islands and Havana, Cuba, taking the top spots. The Bahamas and Nassau came in next, followed by Florida and Miami. Other popular destinations included Cozumel and Mexico, as well as Greece and Australia.
