Default Cruise411.com

Maybe an "unfair " question to ask...

Has ANYONE booked thru this online company ? Their rates (discounted) was about $400 less then what my local agent quoted me..for Summer 2003.

I would hate to book online with a company who could (? )be unreliable--should a problem occur...I live in Florida..they are in Pennsylvania....

Thanks for your imput !

Proceed with haste..............s-l-o-w-l-y!

Talk to your agent and tell them what you have been offered..............

I have heard good things about them and they are cheap; however, a good cruise-only travel agent (I found mine through the Bargain Finder feature here on CM) can usually beat them.

Regular local TA's usually don't have access to the tools that cruise-only TA's have.

Also, I've heard that with the on-line agencies, you can call them directly (and if you can't, don't book with them) and get a live associate to talk to and work with, sometimes with better prices than what they advertise on their sites.

Try a quote there and then the Bargain Finder ads here, they're totally confidential and no one gets your Email address unless you respond to them. The one I found has beat every price I've seen on the internet for the sailings I wanted, and is a total sweetie to work with as well.

I've booked with Cruise411 four times and find the prices great and the people very helpful. You can reach them by phone, too. The number is on their site.

WARNING - Read on another board how Cruise 411 really screwed up - booked the passenger for 2003 instead of 2002 -

I'd watch out for them and check my booking with the concerned cruise Line - sounds as if they are not that reliable!!!!!!!!

I've found them very reliable. It's always a good idea to double check your booking no matter what travel agent you use. You're quoting a second hand "source" which might not be reliable in and of itself, so you really shouldn't start your reply with a big warning when you really don't know the facts for yourself!
