(2)To NOT be self-responsible for having to ‘read’ or understand all the rules !
(3)For backing & support ! Over what ‘could’ happen, whether it be with the vendor or a personal situation.
(4)Cause in most cases, professional guidance, insight, and managing, incurs NO CHARGE. These folks are taking advantage of … FREE !
Just this week, a girlfriend asked me … Can internet sites ‘take back’ their promised confirmation price to you, later ? We were talking flights.
My response back, did you read the rules ?
She in turn, listened to me. Did not buy from an internet provider & bought directly from the airline sight ! Good girl ! (smile)
(2)Vendor chat groups. Personally, I can't believe these vendors don't have a professional employee monitoring & only one allowed to give advice.
(2)Every cruise line handles groups different than just one cabin
(3)Rules are often different with groups
(4)There are many cruise lines offers at each cruise line.
(5)Taking a cruise is NOT the same as booking a cruise ! All the red tape ! Back-office expectations, etc !
(2)Listening to these consumer chat lines !
(3)How many wrong decisions have you made ? How many times, could you have made better decisions ?
(2)Cruise Line employees come/go ! They can only provide you the info they can read on their computer. Reading the info to consumers, does not mean they have company experience nor travel experience.
(3)We all know (apparently these chatters don't know), cruise lines give lower rates to Top Cruise-Only agencies. Not even their past guest can call the cruise line & receive these lower rates/amenities ! Could it be, these chatters work for the cruise line, yet acting like a consumer ?
(2)Buy your vacation from a travel professional
(3)Be selective, what ‘consumer advice’ you listen to ! You could get this confused with the advice your travel professional gives you. AND … What experience does this consumer really have ? AND KNOW … You doubtfully will be able to suit them, if you take their wrong advice !
