Default booking multiple cabins

Hi CruiseMates Staff,

Next year my in-laws will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary and we will be celebrating our 25th. We are considering a weekend cruise on Fantasy or SoS out of Port Canaveral. My two daughters (17 and 20) and my brother-in-law (35, single) will also be going. Am I going to better off using a local travel agent since I need four cabins near each other or can I book with an on-line agency such as Travelocity.

Thanks,
Jerome

Jerome... whether for individual cabins or group bookings, you should shop around for price.

If you're booking for a number of family, I think you're going to be best off talking to a knowledgable cruise agent!!! Whether that's face to face with a local agent, or a good online agent who you can contact at will, and have your questions addressed doesn't matter.

On a personal note.... I don't find Travelocity pricing to be all that great! If looking online, I'd still be looking for cruise only agencies.

Thanks Kuki,

I'm checking with Bargain Finder and a local agent. I'll take your advice and get several quotes from different sources before booking. And, by the way....thanks for a great site. The information is great and keeps my appetite for salt spray and the sound of gulls from fading!

There isn't a "local" agent alive that can beat the price of the online agencies. You can go ahead and limit yourself to the Bargain Finder and your local TA, but you'll be sailing with people who have paid less than you. If you go to any of the other top message boards, you'll find references to what I would call the top five online agencies.
