I echo everyone else here, we use a PVP. We have been using the same one since 1995, so he knows us pretty well and he is very experience.

They do get a commision on each cruise they book, and probably a cut of any shore excursions, but I would have to ask him that.
Ours is not pushy nor has he ever had to be, as long as he has been at Carnival, he must had a big client base built up. I could see a new PVP seeming to be pushy while trying to drum up new clients, but you can't fault them for working hard. The most I get is emails for the weekly/monthly specials.

Actaully, I perfer the PVP... I can tell him what I am interested in and he calls me or emails me when he sees a special for that kind of cruise.
