cruise.com -- Has anyone bought a cruise through them?

I found good prices on a cruise that I want, but I want to know if it's safe to buy from the ff:

1. cruise.com
2. cruise direct.com
3. leisure leaders.com

Can anyone share their experience? I just want to know that they're legitimate.

Thanks,
Lizette

I have been very pleased with cruisequick.com You might get a quote from them, as I find they are usually less expensive.

Yes, I would try cruisequick and ALL others before booking. We got a great deal on an upcoming Celebrity cruise through them. Many hundreds less than any other site. But then they were many hundreds higher on a transatlantic cruise we have planned.

My daughter is looking at a late year RC cruise and found the best price at cruisevacationcenter.com.

But after searching all sites, if cruise.com can't be beat, I certainly would have no qualms about booking with them. I have never seen any negative write-ups about them.

PS I would try to follow my son-in-laws advice about online 'shopping'. Use one CC that has nothing else on it. That way if there is a problem or dispute you don't have alot of other charges on there to wade through. Most of these sites say that all payments go right to the cruiseline and they give you a cruiseline booking #. Then you can go to their site and verify all particulars...date, cabin #, any dining options etc etc.

Good luck on getting your best deal!

I vote for having you try cruisequick too.
I have 2 cruises booked with
them right now and their prices can't be beat.

You should know what you want, though. They don't hold your hand.

Just a word of warning with cruisequick.com:

I used them to price a cruise I'm taking in the near future, and they were $1,960 MORE expensive than the quote I received from my travel agent. Same exact deal, except actually a better room with my TA.

I couldn't find any online cruise site to beat the deal she gave me. Just my two cents.

I have used cruise.com without any problems. When the price of our cabin went down and we notified them, they promptly sent a check for the difference.On the cruise I just booked they could not come close to cruisequick.com, so I went with them.

I've booked three cruises through Cruise.com and had excellent service. However, the other posters are correct--you need to shop around, as you never know who will have the lowest price.

An easy way to do this is through www.CruiseCompete.com

You pick your cruise, then agencies compete to offer you the best deal. If you already have a price quote, put that in the comments so the agencies know what they have to beat.

Good luck!
