Default Does cruise compete work?

I picked up a cruise guidebook last week and read about a web site called cruise compete. Seems legit. Anybody used this site before?

Yes I have, you can access here on CruiseMates.
Go near the top of these boards and look for "Cruise Shopping" and scroll to "Cruise Quotes".
Fill in all the information required. An e-mail will be returned to you with links for the quotes.

The agencies do not get your actual e-mail address unless you respond back.

A co-worker booked his honeymoon cruise in July through an agency on cruise compete and still checks around for lower prices. He hasn't been able to find anything less than $300 more than what he got. He asked why I haven't used them and it boils down to the fact that I have had the same wonderful TA for 13 years and she has booked every last one of my cruises. I have a loyalty to her that far exceeds the extra I pay to have her watching out for me.

He sits in the cube next to me and we are driving everyone crazy with our cruise talk and countdowns. We compare notes, chat about the ports and just enjoy taking a break from the everyday work load to discuss something we both love.

I booked two of my last three cruises using cruise compete and have been very happy.

Yes, just follow Kuki's helpful suggestions. It doesn't cost anything and no one gets your email until you contact them directly. Hey, I bet there are some good prices and you're not obligated.

I booked my cruise with Cruisecompete last week. Agent has been very helpful. Our first four cruises, we used a travel agent and the last three I have done online - this is the first with Cruisecompete. Very easy to use and got quick replies and a good price. I won't mention which agency I used because it might be against site rules.

Just an FYI - the people who are responding with quotes are travel agents from all over the states. Be careful and do your research just as you would for any travel agent. Get everthing in writting if you can.
