We booked our Cruise over a year ago, May 2007. We will be leaving 10-19-2008. We try to live within our means, we got an cabin cat 6a with a Military discount. About 6 months ago our TA called and said she was just checking prices. For a total of $70.00 we could upgrade to a Balcony 7a. We jumped on it and paid the difference.
Today we get a call and she said we could upgrade to a Cat 8g and get about $90.00 back.
(I love to get money back) So we went from a 6a to and 8g and got $20.00 back.
I know there are allot of really good TA's out there but ours has to be one of the best. One of the reasons we use her. Her office does not have to pull our file and check for better deals, but they always do. This is not the first time we have been upgraded, or they have saved us money. Using a good TA like her we just book our cruise and let her do her thing, no more worry for us.
I would post the TA business name but that is a no no.
BTW, she got our hotel to move us from an inside to an oceanview at no extra cost also.
That is why we love our local TA
