TRAVELOCITY? It is awful. If you are planning a cruise vacation, use a good travel agent. My first cruise (1999) my wife and I booked through a travel agent. Our flight connection was delayed and we got to the ship in San Juan three hours after scheduled departure (10pm). Our agent, RCCL and we were in constant communication (before everyone had Cell phone - Pay phone booths). We made our ship with only a little stress.
2005 Booked through Travelocity an "Airport Hotel" in Miami for a plane departure the next morning at 7AM to St Marteen. Need to be at the airport at 5:30. We found out the "Airport Hotel" was 45 minutes from Miama Airport. That the airport shuttles started at 6am. I called Travelocity to book something that could get us a few hours of sleep but to the plane on time. Could not help us and no refund, they did offer to call the hotel for us to let them know we would not be there....HELLO! if we are paying for it and not showing up I do not care if they know about it! Thank goodness Continental got us a room close to the airport at $250 a night (Miami was sold out because of some event), but we made our flight. Travelocity was not only no help but cost us real $$ because they are not real people looking for future business like a real travel agent.
I am not selling pro or con any means of travel but for big trips it is worth a little for human contact.
So in conclusion, SONNY! I agree. There are no bargains with internet sites for vacations. I use them for a flights from A to B for business, ect. but when your vacation is at stake go for the real deal.
