Default RCL & Celebrity no longer allowing agencies to discount

Has anyone else heard that Royal Caribbean and Celebrity are as of 8/14/04 not going to allow travel agencies to discount their cruise rates? Is this true or not?

Not true. They "say" they are not going to allow TAs to advertise lower than "normal" rates.

TA can still actually sell the cruise for whatever price they like.. even at a loss. Like that's going to happen.

Indeed. The new restrictions affect advertising only. The intent seems to be to give TAs that wish to provide a service a chance to compete against TAs who's only interest is to sell cruises on thin margins to make profit solely on volume.
