Default Re: Travel Gent said HAL is the worst Cruise Line ?

There is unfortunately NO governing body, and no certification necessary to become a travel agent. For a few hundred dollars, pretty near anyone can buy in, and work as a travel agent.

This does set up situations where people are selling cruises who know nothing about them, and may have never been on a cruise.

These days spending some time interviewing prospective travel agents, and getting a feel for their level of expertise is pretty important.
