It also depends on where you live. You don't have anything showing in your profile but if you live in Canada you are better with a Canadian Travel Agent not an American one. If you are in Ontario, Quebec or BC you have additional coverage should something happen to the cruiseline or travel agent you use.
The cruiseline (no matter which one you book with) is protecting itself. Their staff are not out to protect and do what's best for you.
(As per my usual qualifier when saying anything like this, I am a Travel Agent).
