Gur (pronounced "Gore") is especially helpful, always trying to get the best deal, etc. I do not have his extension # with me now, but try to post it later.

The agents may be helpful, but I think you will get a better deal price-wise by using a travel agent. Shop around to local agencies and the internet and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Cheers,

We talk to Thomas Burke, he promises to get you the best deal, I like dealing directly with Carnival. I hear alot of people don't but so far so good!

When I booked my cruise I did everything on-line through the Carnival web page. Granted, I don't go on my cruise until Aug. 2 so I may have booked a janitor's closet for my cabin assignment!lol

But I did shop around on other sites and called several travel agents, no one came within $100 of the price I got going directly through Carnival.

I used Topsailcruises, looked at 10 others, Carnival and TA's couldn't come close to the price I got. Then when the price dropped I go a really good upgrade, then the price went back up higher than what I originall purchsed it at, all in all worked real well and Nancy is really great!

Robin Rosenberg at Carnival is awesome. I book way ahead and she automatically checks for price drops once a month for me. I booked a cruise on the Fantasy last year and when I found the price cheaper at Icruise.com Robin transferred the res over to them.
ROBIN ROSENBERG 1-800-819-3902 x82413 (rrosenberg@carnival.com)
not only is she awesome but I think I want to marry her!
You can tell her that if you talk to her.

Thank you Everyone!!! I will definitely be using your advice to find the best price for my cruise. We are thinking between a 4 day and a week and I want to be able to compare the prices. Thanks again! Leslie

Cheryl--

Have you had good luck with that site? I believe it's the same as cruisesinc.com as well. I've been shopping around online and finding some great deals. But I'm nervous b/c of mixed messages I received from experienced cruisers about booking online vs. through a TA/cruiseline. Any advice? Bad or good experiences involved?

Thanks a lot! Looking to be a first-time cruiser!

FlyingJs--

I hadn't heard of topsailscruises.com. I looked at their site and the price they listed is the lowest so far. How many cruises have you booked through them? I've been shopping online, but I'm wary to book b/c of advice on both sides--online booking vs. TA/cruiseline. Any advice you could give would be really helpful. Looking at going in February with a couple friends to Cozumel on 5-nighter.

Thanks for your help!
