The most recent scores were released earlier this month, and the Regent Seven Seas Mariner became the only cruise ship ever to earn a perfect score of 100 three times in a row. (We love Regent, by the way, and the Mariner has excellent Alaska itineraries every summer.) Other ships that scored a perfect score:
