I've shopped on-line for the best cruise prices for a long time. I've had many quotes on cruises, and most of them the cruise price would be the same, but the travel agent would offer credits and ammentities for on board the ship. I've been told that RC does not give credits on certain cruises, and that if the agents give credits, they must be giving up their commissions.
My question is this...how and when do you receive these credits, and why would an agent give up his commission just to book the cruise? I've been offered up to $200. per cabin...is this for real, or are these people trying to rip me off just to get the booking?
