Anyone had any nice big surprises from TA?

So, word on the street is that if you book through a Travel Agent/Company, you can find some very nice surprise perks that come along with it. Has anyone had any experience with this? I guess I'm picturing getting to your stateroom and finding chocolate strawberries or a cake if you are celebrating something, or maybe extra credits for something (excursion, dining, etc)?

i've received a very nice welcome packet with coupons and onboard credits. the best was one time she treated for dinner at one of the steak restaurants on the ship! it was absolutely lovely!

We had a fruit basket in the room that I believe came from TA. With free food on board not a great gift but did give us something to snack on in the room.
