This happens on every sailing of every ship of every major cruise line:

Cruiser A, after checking prices at several or the nation's largest travel agancies and directly with the cruise line finds they all have the exact same fares on offer. But once on board he finds out that the couple with the exact same cabin next door booked with an independent agent who works from home and got the same (or better) fare along with some nice additional perks (pre-paid gratuities, onbard credits, free shore tours, etc. Cruiser A thinks "How is that possible? And how can I find those same deals?"


It's all in the power of groups.

Every seller of cruises books blocks of cabins for groups traveling together. They get reduced fares and additional perks and amenities for their group members. They often have extra cabin space they can offer to others looking at that same sailing. The problem is finding the agent/agency who has blocked space on the sailing you want..
