I’m a big fan of using a travel agent when booking cruises—especially if it’s your first time. If you don’t know which agency to use or which one has the best deals, make sure to check out CruiseCompete! It’s a quick and easy way to get independent travel agencies to compete to offer you the best cruise deal. Here’s how it works. You:

1. Choose a cruise
Use our Cruise Search, browse by Cruise Line or Specials Category, or use Live Agent Help.

2. Create an account
Set-up a CruiseCompete account so you can request and receive quotes anonymously.

3. Request quotes
Select the ship, sail date, passengers, and the number and type of cabins. More than 500 travel agencies will immediately have everything they need to provide custom responses for your cruise

4. Compare quotes
When new quotes are available, they will e-mail you a notification including a link to your account. There is no obligation to buy, and travel agents will NOT have your contact information unless you give it to them.

5. Contact agents
You may contact agents by phone or e-mail for more information or to book your cruise.

It’s that easy. Have you used CruiseCompete? Do you think it’s the best way to find a cheap cruise?

    what is best when using points to travel.
    buy econ ticket and use points to upgrade to bus class or
    just use points for bus class?

      I would just use points for biz class since not all economy fares are upgradeable.
