Default Can you recommend an agent for an Alaskan cruise?

My family is taking an Alaskan cruise next June. Our local Travel Agency had a spokesperson from Princess Tuesday night that we went and listened to. It sounds like we will be going with Princess. Today my mom spoke with the TA and got pricing for the entire trip, she then went home and compared it to the pricing in the Princess book we received and it was about $880.00 pp higher then Princess's prices! We are a group of 10 and this trip is for my parents 50th anniversary, they are treating us kids & spouses to the majority of the trip.

We are looking at a 10 day north bound voyage of the glaciers with a land tour. Is a group price the way to go or maybe individual since my parents are over 55 and could get their rate cheaper? I guess we're looking at our options for booking this trip or at least doing our homework to go back to the agency with to see if they'll work with us before we decide if we need to search elsewhere for booking.

Thanks for your help.

Try cruise compete. It will show you a few different offers and then you will know where your current travel agent stands.
