Didn't even think to ask the agent! I guess I figured they are only good for tickets.
You don't ever want to book directly with the cruise line because if you have any problems, who do you think they represent? That's when an agent can be worth their weight in gold because they have contact information you don't have and often more clout.

Plus, an agent will get you the same price as the cruise and often even better prices. They charge nothing for their services, so it makes sense to utilize their expertise, knowledge, and experiences - it'll definitely make your planning less stressful and make your trip more enjoyable.

Find yourself a reputable agent, preferably a Cruise Specialist, and let them do all the work for you.
