Default Buy online or not?

Hello, Last cruise I did through AAA and everything worked out fine, but this time I was looking online so I would have something to compare it to when I talk to my TA.
I found a 7 night Mexican Riveria cruise on Carnival Pride for about 900 per person including tax and a online bonus of prepaid grituities for guests 1 & 2. ( I think that a value of $140.00)
What do you think? Good deal, or keep shopping...?

Default Ooops I forgot, very important...

900 was for a guaranteed balcony, also I found the price drop about 50.00 when I looked for october instead of Sept.

I would visit carnival.com and click that box to have them call you. When booking online there are certain fees that you have to pay that you don't when you talk to a Carnival Personal Vacation Planner.

When I booked my cruise for this coming March, I found a room online and it was a total of around $2550. I called my PVP to see if he could give me a better deal, and we wound up with the exact same room I requested for $2200; $300 cheaper!

I can PM you my PVP name and number if you would like.
