I booked a cruise aboard a Celebrity ship. I thought I would get a discount, but the agent said they could not sell the cruise cheaper than the TA.
I wanted a particular cabin but Celebrity aboard ship could not get it.
I booked the trip, but later got my TA and she got the cabin I wanted and I had the booking transferred. I had a $200 ship board credit for booking the cruise on board. My TA got that ship board credit for me also, charged me the same thing that Celebrity on board was charging and got the cabin I wanted. Made the Celebrity agent mad, but I think I got the better deal.
