Can you recommend a good travel agent?

    I'm thinking about booking Princess for Alaska next summer, and I'm looking for a good travel agent who knows Princess and knows Alaska. I'm located in Wisconsin, but I don't have a problem working with someone long distance. The local agents I've called don't seem very knowledgeable at all.

    It sounds from reading this board like a good agent can be important to a good cruise. So if you have someone you love, let me know.

    Thanks for your help!

    I have to second geejay's suggestion for Kim's Kruises, she beat everyone else's rates and she is very quick to respond to your questions. Another good one I have worked with is Lee and Diane at Cruise Holidays.

    I highly recommend Lori at Skyscraper Tours <http://www.skyscrapertours.com>. She is another of the advertisers here, and not only has fabulous prices, but also exceptional service. :)

    I, too like Kim at Kimscruises. She always gets right back to me and really stays on top of things. She is always looking to get you a better rate, too.

    Just for the record.... I use Kim too and she has very very good prices and service.

    I do want to vent here for a minute. Has anyone noticed that buycruises.com has really gone down the tubes? Buycruises.com use to have really good service and prices and now they really suck big time!!!

    JD and Todd (the owners) in the old days would go out of their way and give you good prices, etc.. but now they pawn you off on these people that don't know near as much about cruising as I do. I'm just really dissapointed with them right now.

    Anyone from buycruises reading this please hear this. You've lost a good customer and a lot of recommendations!

    I will stick will kimskruises.com any day!!! Used her before and never had a problem.

    Kitty555,

    I am very sorry you have had a bad experience with buycruises.com
    I have dealt with them for the last 4 months and they have been great. They have done things when I asked and with minimum hassle. The only thing I can complain about is that their invoicing system is slow. But that could be my impatience on having proof of what I have paid.

    I'm glad that the person who's used buycruises lately has had good luck.
    I however haven't and apparentely I'm not alone for the emails I've received on my home email address.

    They do not offer good prices any more. What you see on their website is what you get. KimsKruises and 3 other online agents beat them by over 1000 dollars on my up-coming trip to Alaska.

    Buycruises needs to listen up to this message because you've not only lost me but a lot of other people too.

    My vote is for Lori at skyscrapertours.com
    She owns the company... gives great prices, pays attention to detail and returns calls promptly. What more can you ask for!

    Lori Cunningham, owner of Skyscraper Tours, has done a great job for us! I highly recommend her! Marty Rehbein

    I agree with the others - give Lori Cunningham a try. Her service is excellent and we always received our docs early.

    Shop around and you will get a good rate. However, Lori does monitor all the cruise lines - if there is a drop in price, a new promotional rate offered, Lori will make certain you get the new rate and your charge card will be credited accordingly.

    She gets my vote and has saved me a lot of money! :dance

    Happy New Year and Happy Cruising
