Default Travel Agents for QM2 bookings?

Do travel agents give better rates for QM2 bookings versus booking directly with Cunard? I have requests for rates out to several agent but still haven't heard.

Any recommendations? I normally use Bestpricecruises.com when I sail Celebrity, but they don't handle Cunard.

I originally booked through Cunard and then decided to contact AAA. They got me a cabin on the same deck for about $200-300 less. The only problem is that if you book through Cunard they tell you the cabin number, while through AAA, I got a "guarantee." That means I will get that type cabin and that deck- or possibly better. I'm not counting on the "better" but I've heard that sometimes you do get upgraded. The other travel agent I contacted had the same price as AAA.

We're going on the westbound crossing in July.

We booked through our Travel Agency for much less than Cunard. We're going on the July 11th trip through the Fjords and got a really good deal. I checked around with Cunard and several agencies but this one had the best deal. World of Travel out of Columbus.

Hi My husband and I are traveling in July -New York to Southampton with my 82 year old Dad..i am too excited..He is in 6th floor atrium cabin..i hope that he will not have too much noise as it is near the elevator..The prices seem so much higher than was is advertised and i was wondering if my travel agent can get any kind of upgrade..i am fairly new to the cruise industry..We did alaska on Infinity and it was marvelous..I have never traveled across the Atlantic in the summer ever...Do you have insights on $$ and the crossing? Thanks PAm

FYI - I just booked the 11/26/04 Caribbean cruise from NYC through AAA. Their price matched the best I could find out there, but they also had a cruise sale this week that saved an extra $100 per cabin.

So, a B6 balcony cost $1968/pp. An added bonus is that my Travelguard trip insurance cost $50 less because the price after the sale fell into the $1500-2000 category instead of the higher category.

I'm sure I lose ten times what I saved in the casino, but it just feels good to get a bargain price on a vacation.
