Default Ever hear of "My Cruise Getaway"?

Hello,

I have been doing research for an upcoming cruise, and I found this web site called My Cruise Getaway to quote me a price $150 less than any other company... is that fishy? Anyone know anything about them?

Thanks!

When pricing cruises, make sure that the quote you get includes everything: cruise price, port charges, government taxes, fees and fuel surcharges. Different sources will organize these charges in different ways to make their deal sound better. I don't know anything about the one you mentioned, but always ask for the total bottom line. Also, some automatically include their choice of travel insurance and even airfare in their quotes, neither of which I buy as part of the cruise package deal. So, ask questions.
Good luck. And good deals to you!
Marty

Never herd of them. I see they get their picing from Revelex. Are you talking about thier booking engine or the prices quoted over the telephone. people don't know it in many cases, but phone prices actually can be lower than "online" prices.
This is true of any agency -
