If that's the case, you were very likely overpaying on the price.

Travel agents don't make that much in commission on sales. There may be some added incentives on certain sailings. But on a $1000 cruise sale, their net doesn't get over about $150.

From that net, the host agency takes a percentage, and then there's associated expenses to the booking as well.

Again, the important point I believe... as a travel agent I wouldn't risky my business for a customer, and even more so, not for a irregular customer.
