Hi all, quick question...we are ready to book our second cruise and everything I heard was to use a travel/cruise agent and not book directly through RCI for the best cost. RCI sent us (gold member) an invite to allow us to book on Allure in a few days before the general public. Go with them or agent? Suggestions? We really want to go on Oasis or Allure around Christmas 2010 ( schedule not out as of yet). I know the Christmas cruises our expensive but with the kids in school our options are limited. Thanks in advance.
