These surveys are new. They asked a number of questions. You answered Carnival better/Disney better or the same. I answered pretty much the same as I've stated on these boards. I think DCL excels with kids, teens and Entertainment. Service is the same. Food is worse on Disney. It's not that I don't like the food on Disney. It's just very repetitive and there are not enough options. The menus, trivia questions and entertainment options never change on DCL. I haven't cruised other cruiselines enough to know if this is normal. The Sept 4 Alaska cruise never went up in price from opening day. I booked it in May with an OBB. I never saw GT or MTO rates offered. I will say there was a large number of people on the cruise from the Orlando area. Cast Members? I don't know. Many of them were worried about getting home. We disembarked the day after Irma hit. I don't see the number of GT rates I saw I few years ago. I'm not a person that books months in advance. I always relied on those rates. I've noticed the the European cruise prices are rising pretty quickly where the last couple of years they did not. The economy is good right now, but Disney seems to always get hit pretty hard when there's a down turn. I remember the great deals we got after the housing crash.
