Has anyone used smartcruiser.com to purchase cruises?
Looks like they have a lot of reduced prices.
I am thinking of booking a cruise with them but dont know anything about them.
Thank you

I looked at this website and found that I was able to get a better rate through a T/A though they ARE cheaper than booking through the cruise line themselves. Hope this helps.

Many of the big on line 800# cruise agencies are better at marketing than they are at good customer service. They're good at making you believe their prices are deeply discounted. Often the taxes and fees aren't disclosed until the end of booking. Most of their reservation agents are sales people and order takers, not cruise specialist. A Travel Agent can help you in all aspects of your cruise like pre/post hotels, air, and excursions.

I've heard "some" of these services (no names mentioned) have miss-credited people's cruise payments. I know of one in particular that uses Upper/Lower Cabins as their lead in advertising rate. Just saying, be careful when using them.
