Best Way To Browse?

The DCL website is a nightmare, IMO. Maybe other people don't feel the same, but it takes a ton of work to compare cruises. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

The most important thing right now is price, I would like to see the best cruise I can get for the lowest price. At the same time, Alaska is our #1 choice for destination and I want to compare prices of all the DCL Alaska cruises.

Is there another site I can use to weed through the DCL cruises?

TIA

I haven't found it all that cumbersome, but you may want to contact a travel agent as they can present you with the different costs. However, they may want you to give them a couple of dates as well along with your cabin type preference.

You could try a site like Expedia and see if it helps. Or maybe share some of your frustrations specifically and see if someone here can give you some tips for narrowing your search.

there is a website I use for planning "vacations to go dot com". that lets you browse time of year and cruise line and area to cruise. I haven't found the prices to be better than you can get get on your own or through any other travel site, but I find it easier to use then going to the different cruise line websites.

I find the dCL website one of the more frustrating websites. I agree with what you are saying and haven't found a way around it. I wish it was easier to do a broader search than it is. Instead I spend way too much time on the website to find information I can get in one search on other cruise lines websites.
If you find an alternative please let me know!!

I use the DCL to look at destinations and dates. I also write down several prices and then I call my travel agent (TA). I asks my TA to find me the best price for a particular destination and let them do the rest. I'm sorry this doesn't really answer your question but using a TA seems to be the best solution.

I use www.cruisefish.net to compare prices. Its easy to navigate once you set Disneycruiseline as your primary search. They also use red/green to tell you if the prices went up or dropped.
Select the finder tab to start your search.
