Booking with a Travel Agent can be very beneficial. I don't know how many cabins you need, but the TA may start a new group for your party or add you to an already existing group they may have spaced block. Groups usually have added benefits of some type of amenities such as On Board Credit. The Travel Agent will be your one point of contact to speak with the same person each time you have a question. They also will have inside tips for you, and provide information on booking insurance and shore excursions through third party sources rather than through the cruise line. They will help make your organizing this cruise as effortless as possible.
