Actually, The phone calls come from the same cruise line, which happens to be one we have traveled many times. They have our info already. I never provide more than is needed. The calls come from more than one cruise sales planner. Several years ago we were a bit harassed by one and after trying to get to the right contact person I finally found someone that put us on a no call list. That helped then.
But I think it might be starting again. We do like the cruise line and don't need a hard sell.
I want to be able to look at their website and explore options without generating a call.
But you spoke of what encourages us to buy a cruise.
We look for A new itinerary, the ship and then the cost is considered.
