wife and I just returned from a cruise we booked on Travelocity and the
trip was amazing, from beginning to end. We had been wanting to take a
cruise to Mexico for awhile and some friends recommended we use
Travelocity to set it up. We did and could not have been easier. Plus, I
was able to plug in my Travelocity cruises promo code I found on
CouponPal to save a bunch of money.
I first went to their site, right in the top menu bar was the word
“Cruises,” so I clicked on that. That led me to a menu where I could
enter the destination, length of the cruise, the month we wanted travel,
where we wanted to depart from, and even the cruise line. I wanted to
compare the various amenities and prices, so I didn’t enter a specific
cruise line. I hit “Search Now” and a bunch of different options come
up. Time to compare.
select the three that look the most promising and up come all three,
side by side, so I can easily scan which ship has what and how much it’s
going to cost me. I know I want a casino onboard. I know I want a pool.
I know I want to shoot some skeet. I know I want a room with balcony.
Also, my wife mentioned she wanted to try scuba diving.
was able to view pictures from the various ships and read reviews from
other passengers. I mull this all over, click on the cruise that fits
the bill, and then I get to pick what type of cabin we want to stay in,
which deck, etc. I do that and I’m taken to a page that has all my
reservation info, as well as the trip’s itinerary and ports of call
listed all together. It had an option to email this to friends or
family, so I send it to my wife for her approval. About 30 seconds
later, she writes back and says “Book it!” So I do. I enter my credit
card info, my Travelocity cruises promo code (and see my savings) and
print the confirmation page.
time from when I first went to the Travelocity website until I was
finished? Maybe fifteen minutes. I was able to get all the information I
wanted, compare prices, compare what the shipping lines had to offer,
make my choice, and pay for it with no problems at all. No phone calls,
no travel agent, no middleman – just me, my computer, a glass of wine,
and Travelocity. I wish everything was this simple. So, if you’re
thinking about booking a cruise, give Travelocity a shot. It worked out
great for us.
