Default Book a cruise from Italy

Hi everybody!
I come from Italy and I want to book a cruise with an American travel agency but I want to make sure that I'm allowed to, since that in some cruise lines websites there's written that prices "are only for US Residents".

Fares are so much convenient than Italian fares, so where's the trick?

Travel agencies said that they "Believe" that I can book... but "Believe" doesn't satisfy me... I want to be SURE!

Can someone help me?

Thanks to everybody!

I have never booked from Italy, so I can't say with 100% accuracy, but.....

I'm not a US resident, and have never had trouble booking with a travel agency based in the United States. Therefore I can't imagine you having a problem. They sell lots of European cruises, and I never found anything stating they wouldn't sell to non residents.

I think that they mean that the prices are US dollars. And, government fess, for example may be different. Probably not a problem. We've met lots of folks on cruises who were from Europe and booked from there. Good luck!

Ok Thanks. I think I have found the right cruise for me! It's a NCL Cruise and the travel agency website, in the reservation form says that the full payment is due by today, is it possible that they require the full payment in advance?

And also how and when will I receive the travel documents? Which documents do I need to have besides passports?

Thank you

Hello everybody! I've booked the cruise!!

For the documentation, it's not clear if I will need a visa too, it seems strange, Italy is a member of the VWP (Visa Waiver Program), and in all the cruise destinations visas are not required for Italian residents. So why in the guest registration page at Ncl's website I read:

"Non-U.S. Citizens (other than Canadians or alien residents of the U.S.) traveling to Alaska, Bermuda, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean require the following documents:

* Passport
* Visa(s) as required by the cruise itinerary and your specific nationality"

Someone can help me?
Thanks in advance
