Frase,

Crystal, RSSC, Seabourn, and Silversea are considered luxury lines not premium lines. Hence they are not listed in this poll.

They are, however, listed in the "Best Luxury Cruise Line" Poll, along with Cunard.

Walter,

it depends. As far as "brochure rates" go, Oceania is significantly more expensive than e.g. Celebrity and HAL, which tend to be not much more expensive than the big standard market lines. However, Oceania has regular specials including 2-for-1 rates, sometimes even with air included.

Would "Disney Cruise Lines" be considered a Premium or Standard Market cruise line?

Disney's prices are comparable to the prices for Premium cruise lines.

Hi Frase,

indeed, Disney has premium prices, but I would nonetheless not consider them a premium line.

Many smaller niche operators have higher prices than the mainstream lines, yet that doesn't necessarily make their products any better. It's actually like comparing apples with oranges.

So true. My favorite cruise line is not included in the poll because it is a "niche" line, in the small-ship category.

Hi Karen,

may I ask which line you are talking about?

Hmmm, maybe we should include more categories? Like sailing, river boats, niche small ship? I didn't want to try to do too many the first time and simply selected the major contenders thinking that some of the smaller lines probably would not garner the votes necessary to win the category. What do you think?

Starting out with just the 3 categories you have is a good idea. If there is lots of response, then perhaps later on we could do a poll on other categories, such as luxury, sailing, river cruises, small ships, etc.

I think you are probably right about it.

Tom,

I do agree with Karen.

Enjoy the rest of your (likely sunny) cruise.
