If the travel agents disappeared, the cruise lines would be forced to invest millions in additional call centers, equipment, and staff to handle all the traffic that the TAs currently handle for them.

We discuss this issue frequently "in the industry" and all agree that we do not want to even get near this hot potato.

When the auto companies stop using dealerships to sell autos, the cruise lines will stop using TAs to sell cruises.
