Default Cheapest Cruise site?

Other than Smartcruiser does anyone have suggestions on the most reasonable online travel agencies? Having a hard time with Smartcruiser and may need to book through another

I HIGHLY recommend trying some of the agencies who advertise on this site. They're all well established agencies with long histories in the industry.

DON'T rely on using their online booking engines. With cruise line pricing policies these days, you can't find their real best price without direct email or telephone inquiries.

Honestly - anyone who does NOT go to our "cruise shopping" area above and read our "cruise bargains" page regularly is missing out on a lot of potential bargains they probably never would have thought or known existed.

Read our classifed ads - we have one of the biggest listings of cruise bargains you can find anywhere on the Internet!

I'm not completely sure about all those agencies being reliable. Just remember you are NOT buying the cruise from cruisecompete... just through them. Agents pay them for using their database.

No doubt some of their associated agencies are fine, but some are not so reliable. A blanket endorsement of all the agencies involved is a big mistake.
