6 benefits of booking your cruise with a Travel Agent

But booking a cruise vacation on your own can be tricky. Compared to a resort or hotel booking, there are more moving parts and logistics, which is why it pays to enlist the help of a professional travel agent and we are here and happy to help!

A Cruise Specialist helps determine the best cruise for you

Not sure where you want to cruise to, but you know you are in desperate need of a getaway!? No problem!

There are numerous cruise lines to choose from, each with their own style and amenities and as your trusted travel agent we are knowledgeable of all carriers and can best advise which cruise line is ideal for your vacation vision and budget.  

Perhaps you’re looking for a luxury cruise in the Mediterranean, or maybe you’d prefer a more intimate Norwegian cruise line. Either way, as your cruise experts we can help you determine which cruise line (and even the specific cruise ship) that’s best for you. Taking all of the guesswork out of your travel planning. 

A Cruise Specialist helps you choose the perfect itinerary

Just as there are numerous cruise lines to choose from, there are also numerous itineraries to consider.

What is the best cruise for a trip to Alaska? What’s the best cruise that departs from Miami before sailing around the Caribbean? What’s the best cruise for a far-flung getaway, like a trip to the Galápagos Islands?

Tons of questions and we have the answers. As your trusted, cruise specialist we can help craft the perfect itinerary for your cruise getaway!

A Cruise Specialist helps navigate pricing for you

Pricing for cruises can be a bit difficult to navigate. Most cruises are all-inclusive, but what this rate entails can vary between cruise lines. On a Virgin Voyages cruise ship, for instance, all meals, non-alcoholic drinks, gratuities, entertainment, Wi-Fi and even group workouts are included in the upfront lump sum.

Princess Cruises, in contrast, offers distinct packages, each of which includes different amenities. Higher-tiered packages unlock extras like fitness classes, unlimited juice bar access and “premium” dining options.

As your cruise specialist, we can help delineate which package offers the best price for your specific preferences.

A Cruise Specialist helps you choose the best cabin

Not to mention,  there are cabins to think about, too. Although one can typically view the cruise ship’s layout beforehand, it’s difficult to know which accommodation category is the best for you during your trip — because to be quite honest, not all cabins are created equally.

Opting for the wrong type of cabin can potentially ruin a traveler’s cruising experience. It’s better to rely on the expertise of someone who knows which quarters to book, and which to avoid. We can do that for you. 

A Cruise Specialist can help you make the most of shore excursions

One of the best parts of the cruising experience is seeing different locations around the world. Shore excursions are BIG part of your cruise travel, and as your cruise specialist we can help you make the most of these (brief yet enjoyable) land-based adventures.

First-time travelers, and even returning cruisers, may struggle with ports of call, where passengers disembark before exploring a certain location. It can be nerve-wracking to budget enough time to enjoy a shore excursion and return to the ship before it sails to the next port.

That’s an added benefit of having us as your cruise experts, to have someone walk you through the process makes all the difference.

A Cruise Specialist takes the stress out of travel planning

As your Cruise Specialist we are here to help and can  eliminate much (if not all) of the stress that can accompany cruise travel planning, especially with so many variables to account for.

Many cruise ships often require guests to choose specific dining times. Did you know that?! See! No worries if you didn’t but having us by your side we can make sure no detail is left uncovered.

Although cruises don’t offer traditional perks and upgrades that many hotels and resorts do, having us as your Cruise Specialist with a direct line of contact with the cruise ship will inevitably enhance your cruising experience. Allowing you to be treated like the VIP that you are and not considered a number amid the masses.

Plus, as your Cruise Specialist you can receive access to exclusive deals before anyone else depending on the cruise line offerings and availability. 

Ready to travel? Let's get you booked for the cruise getaway of your dreams.
