Since indicating my interest in a cruise on Carnival's website, I've gotten several emails and voicemails from someone who calls himself a "Personal Vacation Planner" . He is apparently an employee of Carnival.
I wouldn't mind having someone to ask questions, but I've had very negative experiences in the past where my "helper's" sole purpose was to try to get me to spend as much money as possible, regardless of my needs or desires.
Has anyone used Carnival's personal vacation planners? Are they helpful or just pushy salesmen? Would it be just as good to book myself via Carnival's online system (I'm doing a cruise only, no flight or hotel arrangements necessary)?
Thank you in advance.
