I booked with a cruise line once,and immediately transferred it to an agent.
We hear this question often, and I have to wonder, what services does a cruiser get from booking directly with the line, other than booking the cruise?
Since the services of a travel professional are free to you, and, often offer you price reductions, upgrades, incentives, etc, why would anyone settle for less than having all that, plus,having an advocate in your corner?
Trip, with her book & tea!
