Do your homework on vacationstogo.com. See if you can do better using cruise compete. I have booked with vacationstogo.com and had a good experience. Prices went down after we bought the cabin. We let the TA know and we were credited the difference.

I like watching cruisecritic.com , but I have always gotten the same or better deals directly with the cruise lines. I just booked our 15th cruise. I never come up with any great deals on the various online travel agents. Book early or late. Look for a deal that suits your needs. For us, 3rd/4th reduced/free in q cabin is always a seller for me. Some people prefer the "free perks" of drinking packages, dining and wifi.

Travel Agent.
The refund is not always cash discount -- sometimes an onboard credit that can be applied towards expenditures and gratuities.

For sailings out of the NY area I've had good experiences with Direct Line Cruises. From what I understand they buy up blocks of rooms very early on so their prices are often lower then others. I don't know if this applies to outside of the NY area.

I've done okay with Cruise Compete or other TA giving me something more than the cruiseline -- same price but maybe an onboard credit or a bottle of wine.

What are you really looking for? large cruises or small cruise ships. I prefer small cruise ships. I always like to cruise towards Carribean islands. Recently we went to Tortola island (adventure trip). We really enjoyed it with scuba diving, surfing. Actually, we planned a budget trip with our children. For our luck, later we got a travel voucher from Mortgages.ca for $2750.https://mortgages.ca/promotion/.
We kept children with his parents and booked Blount Small Ship Adventures Carribean tour package.Wink

Have had great luck with all 3. sometime each will have a different offer, weigh them all out and see which suites your vacation best! If you're cruising out of Port Canaveral make sure to get a hotel + transportation afterwords https://www.goportcanaveral.com takes care of all that in their packages for a great price

I recommend Cruise Sheet:
https://cruisesheet.com/

It's made by a friend of a friend who blogs about best ways to hack cruises and get the best prices:
