Frequently asked questions
Why Should You Use A Travel Agent to Book a Cruise?
Beyond the excellent advice and onboard perks cruise sellers can provide, one of the greatest things about working with our company is that we will have your back if something goes wrong. Because a cruise line is typically an enormous entity, making sure you're satisfied is not always the most important thing to a cruise line sales rep. While the line would love to have you back as a repeat customer, its reps won't lose sleep if you move on because of a bad experience.
Our vacational specialists, on the other hand, have much more of an incentive to keep you coming back, as our customer list is significantly smaller than the cruise lines. If something goes wrong with your booking or on the ship itself, we will be on the phone with the contact at the cruise line immediately to try to get everything fixed.
Our vacation specialists can help with any special arrangements, whether it's organizing a wedding ceremony in a port of call, ordering gluten-free meals, or dealing with accessibility or medical issues. We can also help with pre- or post-cruise travel, such as booking hotels and flights or arranging tours.
Lastly, our vacation specialists will monitor your cruise fare and if the price drops, alert you to the difference and try to get you a refund, onboard credit or an upgrade.
How Much Money Can I Save If I Use a Travel Agent to Book a Cruise?
Simple... we can save you hundreds of dollars!
We are almost always running some type of promotion that includes a booking perk. It can be as little as $50 of onboard credit for the cheapest inside stateroom to free drink packages worth over $350 a person, or even more freebies for certain cabin types. But, to get the most out of booking with us, and save the most money, you can maximize the travel perks by combining our promotions with cruise line promotions.
Once you have submitted a quote, we work diligently to keep an eye out for cruise line based promotions. Once we see a cruise line sponsored special, we get the info, we find the price for your cabin category, and then we call Carnival to update the promotions. Guess what? We call you immediately after to share the good news. You might be shocked at what additional goodies we can give you. We could easily save you hundreds of dollars by doing just a little extra digging.
Can’t I Get a Better Deal Booking Directly With a Cruise Line?
Getting a deal also means knowing that you’re getting the right cruise for you - a lower price isn't the only measure of value. While it’s true that 10+ years ago there was far less information out there on cruise line, hotel, and rental car websites – making the role of a travel agent more essential if you didn’t know exactly what you wanted, the amount of information on the internet today can be overwhelming.
Yes, cruise lines put their information out there on the web, but like any other business, they control the message – so Princess Cruises may have a ton of information, but they’ll understandably be slanted to make their own line seem to be the most logical choice no matter what your preferences may be.
