if you use a Travel Agent who specializes in cruises, it may cost a lot less. Travel Agents who book $100,000 or more in cruises per year are in a position to negotiate the best rates for their clients. They can also command upgraded cabins and amenities like fruit baskets or free drinks, at no charge.
Many people are afraid that because the Travel Agent earns a commission, the rate will be higher. Unfortunately, when you book a cruise directly from the cruise lines website, you usually pay full price. And, they don�t even rebate the commission back to you! The cruise line simply pockets the commission as extra profit. So, it may actually cost you less to use a Travel Agent.
Many travel agents have websites where you can request a quote on a cruise, just to shop around. Remember that having a good relationship with your Travel Agent is more important than saving a dollar or two. If something goes wrong, your Travel Agent is your best friend. If your Travel Agent suggests a different cruise line with the same destination, listen to them. They have the inside scoop, and may be steering you away from a big mistake, like a cruise line that�s about to go into bankruptcy or has lousy service.
