what is covered and under what circumstances.
Travel agents do not usually charge the client for booking cruises. So if you are not sure what cruise line you would like to use or what trip you would like to take an agent could be a great help. A good agent becomes familiar with the personalities of the different cruise line and ship. They can steer you towards the trip of your dreams. Shore excursions can add a pretty penny to your total price. The ones provided by the cruise lines are usually very expensive. But, choosing local providers can be risky. An agent can help you choose safe excursions that may be more interesting and/or cheaper. Agents can provide good information on travel insurance and tell you in plain language what you are getting for your money.
