booking online
Hi everyone,
so I decided and was trying to book one online and ran into a few problems. the travel agency site I'm using is down for a bit so I have to wait. But I do have a question regarding cabins.
The site had 5 cat AB cabins listed for selection and the Guarantee option.
I checked on the deck plans and they're not my favorite location but that's all they showed. So I checked for availability and they had the same cabins availabe for alot more.
So I checked another website and they have the same cabins for selection.
I'm a bit confused now. would all travel agency have the same cabins available. Does this mean princess releases a few cabins at a time?? would more cabins be available this week??
if I do choose the Guarantee option can I pick a cabin later before I make final payment?? if prices have gone up would I be responsible for the difference if I pick the cabin??
I'm trying to book two cabins and don't want to end up on different decks.
please advise.

who not to use
All I know is don't use Smartcruiser they have bad personal service. And if your cruise goes down in price you can't change!

I wouldn't book via the online booking agency. No doubt they have a toll free number. CALL and discuss your options.

JHearty - I have 2 cruises booked with smartcruiser - i saved alot compared to other online and TA's in my area. Have you had trouble with them? I didnt see any complaints about them when I googled them.

Often times cruise websites only show a very small number of the cabins that are actually available. As another poster suggested, I would give them a call and see what they say.
