A good argument for using a TA.
One couple that is going on this Alaskan cruise (friend of a friend) decided to bypass the TA I had set everything up with and book directly with Norwegian. When the TA called them they said they had booked with the cruise line and saved $300 off his price. Long story made shorter... they booked them selves on a different ship. LOL
So instead of the cabins just being down the hall they will now be MILES apart.
Fortunately the final payment has not been made so there is still time to fix things.
