I have been getting prices from firstname.lastname@example.org that seem like realy good deals, but I have always used a local travel agent and I am nervous about signing up from Web page ad and e-mail. Has anyone used cruise club? Someone suggested I-cruise, but I have not been able to find it.
Travel Agents normally offer better prices than the cruise line themselves. I'll go one step further and offer you a great TA. Her names Valerie, (but anyone can help you) and she works for Carlson Wagonlit. Unlike most travel agencies, Carlson Wagonlit's employees aren't paid on commission. Atleast I don't believe they are. So, whether you want to cruise for 7 days or 3 days, they're not going to force you into something that's over your budget. I'm sure that there are several CW's around the world, but I only know of one. It's located in Killeen, TX (Fort Hood, Army Base). And don't worry. My wife & I booked our third cruise (travel date June 24) from Virginia. We received all of our papers 2 weeks ago. Also, a lot of times they have really great deals.
