Cruise summer 2021 - best on board credit

Hi, I am eagerly waiting for the DCL prices to be relased for everyone tomorrow so we can get a quote for our first cruise!
I am weighing up where to get quotes from, one option mentioned is a US TA, there is also on board credit with them. Do all TAs give the same amount and what would the amount be?
It would be a 4 night cruise.
This would be tagged on a trip to WDW which we did as our Once in a Lifetime in 2017 😀.
As a backup in case the prices are silly money I am also looking at RC which seems much cheaper. Any idea when they are released for summer 2021?

Thanks for any advice.

I booked my September DCL cruise with Dreams Unlimited. As far as I can see they give the best onboard credit. I'm a solo cruiser and I got $100 on board credit.

They calculate it as a % of your cruise cost.

With Dreams Unlimited they give you a profile and login to to their site. I have been paying off my cruise in installments.

Another benefit of using an American Travel Agent is that when I log in to the DCL App I can buy all the stateroom gifts and drinks packages. Europeans who book direct with Disney or through a European Travel Agent don't have access to this on the App and have to phone DCL about 6 weeks before departure to buy any stateroom gifts or drinks packages

This is their website dreamsunlimitedtravel/

They will book your WDW package as well.

This is their terms and conditions page dreamsunlimitedtravel.co...ruiseterms.htm

All notifications of cancellations must be received in our offices prior to 5 pm Eastern Time to be processed the same day. Any notifications received after 5 pm Eastern Time will be processed the next business day.

Cancellations may be made by telephone or in writing. Changes to the vacation commencement date or changes of Guest names are subject to cancellation fees, stateroom and occupancy availability and prevailing rates at the time of the change. For cancellations, amounts paid, minus cancellation fees and other amounts owed, will be promptly refunded. No refunds will be made in the event of interruption or cancellation by the Guest after vacation commencement date. All appropriate refunds will be made directly to the Guest's credit card account or through the Guest's Travel Agent if the reservation is made through a Travel Agent. Disney Cruise Line is not responsible for the receipt of refund monies by Guests from their Travel Agents. When applicable, monies are refunded based on exchange rates at the time of cancellation, not the exchange rate at the time of payment. All travel documents including airline tickets must be returned before refund processing can begin. Certain Travel Agents may withhold an agency cancellation fee. Disney Cruise Line reserves the right to restrict any changes to a reservation. All changes are subject to availability. Please note that changes made to overall party size may result in a change to the rate. For your peace of mind, we recommend the purchase of the Vacation Protection Plan. Premiums for the Vacation Protection Plan must be paid by the final payment due date, and the Vacation protection Plan is not effective until final vacation payment is made.

We've booked all of our cruises with Dreams Unlimited before - I did it to pay back for all the entertainment they've given me over the year with the DIS Unplugged podcasts and vlogs.

I'm silver, so if you want some indicative prices now, let me know and I'll get them for you.

This is wrong. I booked drink packages and stateroom gifts with the app for our last cruse. Have just checked and am able to do it for our cruise in November
