Have any of you fellow cruisers used this TA? I got a great rate for the Golden Princess for Thanksgiving. Please feel free to give me some feedback.

With this type of post we request all those wishing to respond do so through private e-mail.
Then the poster can determine on their own the authenticity and reliablity of the the respondant, and how much weight they choose to give it.

While you may or may not agree with our reasoning, it's really quite simple. With the anonomity of forums such as ours, we have no way of knowing if recommendations are sincere, or coming from the agents themselves, self promoting.
Getting recommendations on TAs before using them is a good idea! However getting them from anonymous sources is not that great idea in my view. When someone posts that XYZ agent ALWAYS get the best prices, it's a pretty clear tip off that something isn't right. Quite clearly NO agent ALWAYS has the best prices. There are way too many variables.

I'd suggest trying CruiseMates Bargain Finder... <http://www.cruisemates.com/findcruise/index.cfm>
This is a free service provided by CruiseMates, where you post information about a cruise you're interested in, and agents can reply with a quote. HOWEVER, your privacy is protected, as the quote is sent to you through CruiseMates. You have no contact with the TA unless you choose to respond to their quote. I believe this levels the playing field.
