The numbers are definitely skewed! We were always told that statistics can be made to show anything you want them to. With small enough numbers in this poll the accuracy is really questionable.
Tauck which is probably better that all those listed did not even make the top ten!
There is also the element that "you get what you pay for" and at a low price expectations may also be low..
So much for polls.
Not sure why you found this survey so upsetting? Just because something cost more does not always mean that it is better.Don't shoot the messenger please.I doubt very much if Travel and Leisure has an axe to grind. I don't see how anyone can compare something that they have no experience with!
I am also surprised that Avalon and Amadeus are not on the list. At least this list gives us several companies to consider that others have been happy with.
Steamboats we do appreciate all your valuable input but do you think you are perhaps a little bias because Deilman is a German company and you have cruised with them but not the others?I have not cruised with Deilman and would not even begin to judge them at this point.I guess I could eliminate them just based on the fact that it is a cruise that requires people dress up a lot?
Carhut thanks for posting this,very interesting.
