I have used American airlines to book my last 4 cruises. Surprisingly the service is better that any other agency I've ever used. Pls I get more freebie perks that booking direct with the line or a smaller agency.

I started the booking process with AAA for my first cruise and 3 hours later I almost paid for it when I realized I was a member of RCI and stopped the booking with AAA.

I got a mid ship balcony for $150.00 less than AAA $200.00 less than Carnival's cost.

I can say that AAA was very helpful and they didn't buffalo me on any part of the process.

We usually get our travel insurance through our AAA, and have used their services for land trips, but never booked a cruise or flights because we have found better rates elsewhere.

I'm thinking you mean American Auto Association (AAA) and not American Airlines so...

AAA = only for road trips so far. We've looked at their other travel offerings and have not been persuaded to book through them thus far.

We have not used American Express at all.

I have used both and both were fine. There were no problems at all.

We are tempted to try Amex because they award double points

AAA has a solid organizational reputation. With all the competition for cruise booking outlets, I'd not be worried about trying them, especially where points are concerned.

We use United Cruises for simple bookings because they award 7x points (conditions apply). Those points add up and we use them to book flights for subsequent cruises. It's all good :)

American Air has a deal going that if you are paying with a Citi/AA credit card, you get miles 3X the price of the cabin + an extra 5000 miles. So a balcony on the Oasis and taking my daughter gives us about 1/3rd of a flight.

I save the miles until we have enough to fly business class to Europe or hopefully Australia one day. For us, that gives us the most value for the miles earned.
