Shopping Around For Prices

I'm going to Bermuda in June and have been checking prices and there is almost no difference between AAA, the .com agencies, and local agencies around town. Is this because of the cruise location I've chosen.

Try the really big .coms, like cruise.com.

Believe it or not, that's the one I called. Needless to say I was very surprised that they all came in so close together. I always felt that AAA was higher but maybe they are feeling the competition from others and are becoming more competitive with their prices?

Dot Com's are in trouble. Many are folding. They are raising prices to make up for the shortfall.

Also if one has a problem on a vacation, do not expect any help.

Try cruise411.com, it generally has the best prices and great service. I used them this summer and couldn't have been happier. Let me know how their prices are on the Bermuda cruise.

Good Luck.

Frank, just to let you know Cruise411 quoted me 1,359 for everything including port charges and insurance and AAA was 1,417.51 for the same thing. For the small amount extra I think we'll go with AAA I guess for the peace of mind.

Our AAA office has always been very expensive (retail price of the cruise line).
