(Relaxnews) - New York City’s largest cruise ship, the Norwegian Breakaway, has been named the world’s best new cruise ship for features like The Waterfront -- an open-air deck that allows for al fresco dining by the sea -- and its Big Apple-themed concept.

According to the Cruise Critic, billed as the world’s largest site dedicated to cruise reviews, experts lauded the new liner for putting New York City on the high seas with paintings of the Statue of Liberty, NYC murals and even workout classes created by the world famous Rockettes.

In the luxury category, Regent Seven Seas Cruises took the top spot for its all-inclusive feature that includes free unlimited shore excursions, open bar concept and fine dining options.

And because passengers travel together they're more likely to bond, critics wrote, contributing to a friendly and more social experience.

For the third year in a row, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line took the top spot in Best Entertainment for putting on elaborate Broadway performances of “Hairspray” and “Chicago,” as well as ice skating and aerial shows.
