Prices are the same with the cruise line or a good travel agent. I would never book a cruise with any internet agency. I like the personal service I've been getting with my travel agent for the past 6 years. If I didn't have her I would probably deal directly with the cruise line.
f-mattox, wish I had the vacation time to join y'all. Just got back from CO, visiting the folks the first week of this month and already booked on Adventure of the Seas in Sept. That leaves me only a few days I use one at a time for taking my boys to a ball game or something else they want to do.
Sorry for the delayed response. My weekend is Tues and Wed so with all the voice and emails I have to get out of the way on Thurs I miss almost three days of chat each week.
I'll catch the next one if it becomes a tradition. Would really like to meet everyone.
