And that's a horrible decision by the company, and honestly I'd never deal with them.
I'm Canadian, and haven't dealt with a Canadian cruise agency since my very first cruise. I advise all Canadians to look for the best deals they can find, and those are sadly normally south of the border.
The good news, they are a phone call, email, or click away.
However you can have issues if something happens such as the Conquest fiasco this week.
If you book with an American agency or direct with the cruiseline you have absolutely no recourse.
Out of curiousity Kuki, do you buy insurance and if so, where? Insurance bout from an American carrier actually doesn't cover you for anything.
I also don't agree that all the best deals are found in the states by far.
