Did you know that utilizing a Professional Travel Agent can:

1. Save you time and money. 
2. Insure all trip components are confirmed, coincide and paid up to date.
3. Make sure you have all possible bonus amenities when available.
4. Insure that your trip is hassle free. 
​5. Get you multiple “non age related” travel insurance options.
6. Offer you optional shore excursions.
7. Offer pre- and post-cruise packages, tours and excursions.
8. Have all the proper travel documents prepared for you before you go.
9. Give you the personal service you deserve.

10. Employ Cruise Specialists that can also provide...

...non biased professional cruise reviews.
...insider information on ships, cabins, dining, excursions, and more.
...insider tips on cruising to save you time and money.  
...first-hand knowledge of cruising and ports of call.
...more negotiating power with cruise lines if needed.

With the invention of the Internet, it's not surprising when I here people say " I don't know how booking through a travel agent works" or " I didn't think that travel agents even existed any more."  But with the increasing number of online travel sites, many cruise and vacation shoppers are beginning to seek the advise of "Travel Specialists" more and more to help them see through the muddy waters of the Internet.

And why not... many agents today are Specialists in a variety of destinations or types of travel... they are paid commissions by the travel suppliers so their services are free... and in most cases they can save you a great deal of money, time and frustration.
