Question HAL fares

I'm very confused abt cruise fares. Two travel agents have quoted fares that are LOWER than those from online ticketing ("direct") which seems strange since a commission must be paid to the travel agent that could be passed along to the traveler willing to use the online purchasing function. Is there any reason for the higher fare by skipping the travel agent

My last HAL cruise presented the same issue. I contacted HAL who told me to go with the online travel agent with the best rate as HAL cannot match their own low rates that they broker to other agencies.
