I have been researching our Alaska Cruisetour since January. I have spoke with a few different travel travel agents local to us and did not get a good feeling. I was actually telling them things I had found out through my research that they didn't know (simple basic things). This did not give me a good feeling. After more research and several conversations with Princess themselves I decided to book direct through Princess. I felt confident with them! Now I am wondering if I made a mistake. I still feel confident with Princess but I just don't want to miss anything important that I need to do before leaving and am not aware of. Have any of you booked direct with Princess? What were your experiences? Do you think I should have booked with an agent???
