We want to book a cruise for the fall and have received what looks like a very good quote from an online cruise booking service. Has anyone had good (or not so good) experiences booking with www.cruise.com or www.cruise411.com? Are there any
drawbacks to booking with such an outfit? Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
Re: Question on Booking with Online Cruise Services
There are big differences between the two - not to say one is better, just different.
Cruise.com is a conglomeration of many independent agents, so if you book with oneof their agents you are not booking with Cruise.com, per se, you are booking with that independent agent who uses Cruises.com as sort of a clearing house.
Cruise411 is not like that - they are a single company and all the agents work for and represent the parent company. Cruise411 is a reputable agency.
But with cruise.com agents being independent agents does not imply they are not good by any means, it just means that it doesn't mean anything to ask the question unless you specify WHICH cruise.com agent you are talking about.
