Hi jsheridan, welcome to Cruise-Chat. I hope you will decide to book a cruise. Just a little advice. If you have a good travel agent, that is CLIA certified or at least specializes in cruises, that is the way to go. Booking through an on-line "agency" is not the best way to book. A good travel agent is worth their weight in gold. They will be sure you get the best price available. They don't charge anymore than booking directly. In fact, more times than not, they can get a better price than what the cruise line offers. A lot of agents have blocks of rooms they book and can sell at a group rate price. They also have all the promotional information.
I use the internet to find pricing, then either book directly or use an agent. Dave has his own agent as well as others on the board. As Dave stated, we don't advertise their names, locations, etc.
I do want to warn you, cruising is addictive
We hope you'll visit us often and let us know what cruise you decide to book.
