Well, instead of asking a travel agent who has never been there, I figured I would try to find somebody who has actual experience. Find out the things they loved, just stuff you can not get from a travel agent. So allthough a nice reply, not much help. I am looking for people who have been there and see what they really liked. Thanks in advance.
bcfisher, while it may be true that an agent has not visited every port you are looking for, a good cruise agent continues their education concerning the ships and ports of call. Everyone can give you recommendations based on thier experiences, but a good cruise specialist agent will be able to qualify you based on your likes and dislikes and exactly what you are looking for as far as excursions. They also can tell you the differences in the ships some people love the Costa lines, others wouldnt step foot on it, some people are die hard Carnival fans, others wouldnt step foot near it. A good agent can help you sort out these areas and make sure that you have a great cruise.
Just my $.02
