Many don't realize Travel Agents don't have the flexibility to just set any price and give someone "a deal". Support your local Travel Agents. If you don't want to use the same one as before then check the CLIA site Lisa provided. A Travel Agent is there to answer all your questions. They are there before, during, and after the cruise if problems arise. They are your advocate to write letters to the cruise line or make phone calls if needed. They will go over your docs with you when they come in. Travel agents attend conventions, trade shows, seminars, and take ship inpections to keep up on changes with all the cruise lines. They will give you unbias information and help you choose the right cruise line and ship.
