Welcome to the Cruisemate family! I urge you to do two things....absolutely book with a travel agent...you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. in case of any issues that might arise, the ta can help you, the line cannot.
Two...get travel insurance for your crusie....go to insuremytrip.com and plug in your pertinent info, and you can get side by side comparisons of the plans. Medical evac is what you need to put at the top of the list for coverage. Take it from someone who used it last year.
Anytime you need help along the wait, jump in, and, ask us anything you need help with.
Trip, with her book & tea!
