Default Looking for a Travel Agent

Going on our first cruise and wondering if anyone might have a recommendation for a travel agent in the Portland, Oregon area? I've tried cruising.org but there are many out there and it can be a little daunting trying to find a good one.

This is an awesome site with a wealth of information. I've become addicted and I haven't even gone on a cruise yet!

Thanks for all your help guys!

Jeff

Hi Jeff,
You can look at the ones that handle our group cruises here, just go into that section. She can help you will all your questions, although she's not in your area, but is always available to call or e-mail with concerns.

My advice is to go with Donna's advice!
Finding a local agent really doesn't matter any more. The only thing I use a local one for is to go in looking for brochures. But, any place that has to maintain an office has overhead costs that get added into what they sell, they have to. So, even though I am more than willing to hear what they have to offer, its been years since one gave me a competitive price. So, I have no clue where my TA is physically located....but I do know her phone and email #'s.

This ta, is a cruise specialist too, which can really make a difference, when discussing the right ship, ports, and insurance questions. Good luck!
