Default all these cruise sale ads

Have any of you bought your cruise from one of these pop up ads on this board? We are looking for a great deal for July on Carnival from Galveston for 4. Has anyone gotten a great deal from these pop ups? If so which one?

I clicked on all the pop-up ads here before booking our latest cruise a few days ago but the sites weren't as good, IMO, as Travelocity. Also, Travelocity has the $150 Master Card cash-back that I couldn't find on these sites. Plus, since I had previously booked with Travelocity, I felt comfortable using them again.

I would prefer to make arrangements through this site since it is so helpful, but I haven't found the price or "comfort level" with these pop-up ad companies. However, if CruiseMates would add a link to Travelocity, I would use it.

First off .. There should be no POP UP ADS, when using CruiseMates. I would assume you're referring to the banner ads.

If there's a specific agency who you've received a quote from, it's probably best to ask about people's experience with them.

In the RED bar near the top of the page, you may want to click on Cruise Quotes".. this will allow you post asking for quotes on a trip you're looking at. Agents respond to your request for the quote, through CruiseMates, so they do not have your direct contact information until you find a quote that interests you, and you choose to contact them.

I strongly suggest going to Cruise Bazaar to see the best deals our advertisers offer here. Travelocity may be offering a $150 coupon for Carnival, but a couple of oiur advertisers are offering $300 Coupons on ALL Carnival cruises.

I believe our advertisers, which are among the biggest cruise ONLY agencies in the country, offer you far better value that Travelocity. Not only do you get a better price many times (or as good as), you also get the benefit of working with an agency of cruise specialists rather than oder takers.

I wouldn't book a cruise through a TA just because of Carnival's $300 coupon booklet. We had one of those coupon booklets and sailed the Glory in January. One of the biggest valued coupon was for a ' free work of art' valued up to $95.00. The art auctioneer would not accept the coupon. So much for a $300 value coupon booklet!!!
