As a faithful reader of Jerry Hulse's column each week, I note with an eager eye his recommendations. I noted with interest recently the name of a "cruise only" travel agency. I found it even more interesting that he would choose a company whose sole basis of operation is discount, not service. A discount is important for all of us, but a cruise customer usually needs more than just a price--knowledge and service.
On our recent cruise into the Pacific we discovered a company that provided both. CruiseMasters in Los Angeles provided the good price, but more importantly to us, the service and knowledge that we needed to make our vacation perfect. (I am not connected with CruiseMasters in any way.)
