All our cruises, except the last one and including our next one, was with a TA. Our last cruise taken was booked late and direct thru Celebrity. We would probably not book with a Internet agency. You don't have a category for TA and cruise line direct so we checked TA. :smiley: :smiley:

So far, all of our cruises have been booked through a TA. One day, I may get the guts up to book on-line :undecided:

All of our recent cruises have been booked online with no problems and great savings.

After 42 cruises we know what we want and really don't need a TA's "hand-holding" through the process. If we were doing something really complicated, I'd probably go back to a TA.

There is even a site where you can post your cruise details and have various agencies compete through a bid process and you pick the one you want. Used it on our recent Legend of the Seas cruise and it worked great.

I used to shop the internet to get a benchmark of prices and then call the TA. Usually they could match or nearly so, but usually provided us with a bottle of wine or something that the internet agencies don't. However, now I am a cruise TA, and book my own :grin: .

Hey Skip, try that site with Royal Caribbean again LOL. I posted on there a few weeks ago for the Mariner of the Seas, and with the new rules in place, all 4 of the replies were exactly the same. Now if they would only increase their Princess listings on there.

I like the thought of using a TA - someone to vent to if necessary - face to face. Mind you our ta called the house while we were away on our Glory cruise - to see how we liked it - go figure. She booked the flights too, so she should have know when we were coming home lol. TTFN Jennifer

My husband and I will be enjoying our first cruise in early February. We are going with a group of 17 others, and our trip was arranged through a travel agent. This being my first cruise experience, I felt good about booking through a travel agent entrusting that they know a whole lot more than I do. :cheesy:
