    We book directly with the cruise line. That way we have complete control of the booking and do not have to rely on anyone else's working hours or restrictions.

    You get better pricing from the agents than from the cruise lines.

    You typically will get a better deal from a travel agent - but they are not all created equal. Royal Caribbean, for example, requires agents to list the same price as RCI. Agents will offer you other incentives to get you to book through them - onboard credits, extra-fee meals, wine, etc. To see for yourself, try www.cruiscompete.com for a selected ship/date.
