only problem with booking through an agent is you have to go directly through them if you have any changes to the booking. When I booked my last cruise they knocked off 800 dollars off the total price and gave us an on board credit.
Make up your own minds I that.
Well of course you do. That is why the Travel Agent is your advocate. Why should you spend time on hold waiting to speak with the cruise line, not getting the same person, and half the time the person you speak to doesn't understand or can give you the correct answer? You make a quick call to your TA and she handles everything. Including getting you the $800 OBC. $800 ???

Diamond status is 10 cruise credits. Even if that was only five cruises (2 credits for suites or longer cruises), you don't think someone can form an opinion? During that 15 years Dave also went on many other cruises on different cruise lines. I think he is qualified to make an informed opinion.

As I said before you need to find a good agent. Many people go to several Doctors before they find the right one.

Then you had a bad agent.

I haven't cruised exclusively with RCI over the years, but have done 8 cruises with them - 4 in the past two years - which I feel allows me to offer an informed opinion. Are we going to start requiring someone to have X number of cruises with a line before they can voice their opinion here? No, we aren't going there.

Looking back at the original post, the person was not asking where to fine the cheapest prices. They were asking what time of year has the lowest prices.

dave I didn't mean it like that. Yourself and sonny have some great opinions and to be honest this site probably wouldnt be the same without yourselves. Just try and stick to giving great opinions than comparing on the no. Of cruises you've done.

Wouldn't think about going any other route than an experienced TA in the cruise line business to help me with my cruising, (Did I do spell check?) and we have been cruising only for 10 years. I know that if I have questions, she will be there for me and SHE is looking for my repeat and referral business.
