Default Where do you go before you go

Active Cruise Mates use the internet well. What websites in addition to all the helpful information do you use in your cruise planning?

Some of the ones I use are:
Insure My Trip - for travel insurance
Kayak - for flight and hotels
VRBO - for longer pre or post cruise stays
and of course searching for destination travel sites

Good question!

After booking my cruise, I head to the sites that will get me a good fare.I just heard of another one, called Momondo. So next cruise I will add that, to Orbitz,or Travelocity.

Then to insuremytrip.com to get that taken care of.

Then to try and get my hotel at a price I can live with. I have used Hotwire,and Priceline in Lauderdale, with great results....bidding downtown 4 stars, it's worked for me.

I also check sunny.org to see whats cooking in Lauderdale where we precruise.

Then I wait
