The hotels, cities, islands, and cruise lines that have placed at least 10 consecutive years in Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards.
All those honored by Travel + Leisure’s annual World’s Best Awards are winners — but some are more winning than others.
Every year for the World’s Best survey, T+L asks readers to weigh in on their travel experiences around the globe, to share their opinions on everything from airlines and cruise lines to cities and spas. And every year, the survey reminds us of why we love to travel, of the ways in which being taken out of our comfort zone — in comfort — can return us to our best selves.

But it is one thing to achieve excellence and another to sustain it. This list honors the airlines, cruise ships, cities, hotels, and more that have been named to the World’s Best list for at least 10 consecutive years. Some are grande dames: Singapore Airlines has been lauded as the Top International Airline since the list began 22 years ago.
All of these entries speak to what it means to be the best in the world — in service, style, and sophistication.
