Booking with a travel agent has many great advantages from price monitoring to extra onboard credit just to name a few things. Even for the seasoned traveler, booking with a travel agent can give you peace of mind. All travel agents are not created equally. Make sure you take your time and go with your feelings. I like someone who is easily accessible and as you will find, Jason definitely fits that bid for me!
