Question Looking for TA

I know Iíve seen a cruise travel agent mentioned on this site. Can someone tell me how to contact her. Were having trouble with cabin categories and I find the cruise lines really donít know about the rooms.
Were trying to book for next yearís southern Caribbean and could use an experienced TA.

You can ask on this site, quite a few people have as much if not more experience than a TA. I can't recall about on here, but some sites will not allow TA recommendations.

Hi Aerogirl,
If you go into the section where all the Cruisemates group are listed, you will see all Nancy's contact information...I'm sure she can help you with the cabin question.

The person who picks up the phone at s cruise line is simply an order taker. Possibly has never been on a cruise,and often does not know the answers to the questions put to them.

Having a ta , to be pro active for you, is so important..there job is not over till you get home...Aero, did you get my pm?

Yes I did Trip ,thanks! The more I look the more confussed I get. I will call for sure. I would like to look at all the cruise lines. My friends will not do RC. I would give them another chance since we cruised with the so long ago. I'm intrested in Atf or extended balcony rooms. Which one of the two are bigger? we have three of us and have only sailed in the penthouse suites. I'm sure she will be of great help. Thanks once again.

Outside of the food issues,which is just sooo subjective, to my mind, RCI has beautiful ships, and, a wide range of activities.I too would like to hear why not RCI....

It was in 2000! . We were on Majesty of the sea and thats pretty old. I don't need a brand new ship but another class. I'm going to get my info together and pass it along to my group. I'm pretty much up for anything as long as it's on water.

Too bad your friends won't sail on Royal Caribbean; the new class of ships, Oasis and Allure of the Seas; it''s a wow factor; I will try and change your mind. Go to this website and look at the videos of the new ships Royal has to offer. Cheers

WOW that looks really fun!
I think their thinking about giving it another try. I myself didn't like Majesty of the sea either but will give it another try on another class of ship. Thanks for the video, another tool for me to work them!

Hi Donna,

Greetings from a new Aussie user.

Can you be more specific about how to find Nancy's contact info.

I know the subject of Aussies paying too much has been flogged to death, but I would absolutely love to find a wonderful TA in your neck of the woods.

Sick and tired of being taken advantage of down under!!

Many thanks.

Nicki
