So, you have decided to take a cruise and are ready for the best vacation of your life. All you need to do is actually make a reservation and put a deposit down on this trip. You decide to go to the cruise line’s website to find an available cabin and book it online or call that nice lady pictured on the company’s website. You will make a reservation and be on your way. Even though they are telling you that you are getting a good deal on the cruise, how can you be sure?
In fact, it is more than likely that you are NOT getting the best possible deal! Why? Because you are not taking advantage of the best ally you have when trying to score a great cruise deal, a travel agent. Here, we outline why we use a travel agent and why you should too.
I whole heartedly agree that that you should consider using a travel agent to help you book a cruise. I also have found that the prices the cruise lines show and what a good travel agent can get for the same cruise are vastly different.
I have booked cruises both directly with the cruise line and also with a travel agent. I know better now and only use a travel agent. I like saving money and many times the travel agent has additional perks available like onboard credit or free room upgrades.
You should give the travel experts at Cruiseable a try and see what they can do for you.
