Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! The holidays are here, and so is our weekly round up of this week's Royal Caribbean news.

The gifts came a little early for Royal Caribbean this week, with Royal Caribbean being named Best Cruise Line Overall by Travel Weekly for 14th consecutive year.

Royal Caribbean also claimed the top spot in a few other categories including Best Cruise Line in the Caribbean, Best Cruise Line Sales & Service, Best Overall Individual Cruise Ship (Allure of the Seas), and Best New Cruise Ship (Harmony of the Seas).

Travel Weekly honored the winners of its Readers Choice Awards at a gala dinner and ceremony on December 15 at the Conrad Hotel in New York. Winners were selected in 78 categories, ranging from hotels to tours to airlines to GDSs to cruise lines, represent the best of the best in travel.
