By being introduced to this blog and reading/hearing about MEI Travel and how knowledgeable and accommodating they are in booking future RC cruises I would like to reach out to them and see if we can put together many more cruises on the books.  My current travel agent is alright, I guess, she is very difficult to get a hold of and is slow at returning correspondences.  With MEI Travel do you guys use a specific person? One that you work with over time and really gets to know you and your preferences?  I like having that kind of relationship.  One where I am not just a number. You know what I mean?  If this is the case, could you please recommend someone, someone you have had good experiences with? I would greatly appreciate it.

I second @michelle,   she's had my first reservation with MEI for almost two years now (leaving in 41 days) and has my second which i booked with her about a year ago, leaving April 2020.   I've in the works on a few more which she will definitely handle for me as well.  Very personable and has been able to rebook my reservations to save me money and/or get me more OBC.   Many folks here on the blog us her along with others at MEI.    While I'm biased since she's the only one i've used,  I would venture to say you can't go wrong with anyone at MEI

Another +1 for @michelle -- we've got 3 booked through her ..... her patience with the most mundane questions we throw at her has been invaluable.  And her response time?  Considering how busy she is, it amazes me how she takes the time out of her day to take care of everyone.

After becoming addicted to this blog I switched my HOS reservations, that I initially made through RC, over to MEI. My agent is John Ames and he has been amazing. This is the first time I have ever used a travel agent and I will use MEI, and John, for any future travel needs. I have had a hundred questions and he has been patient and answered every question. When I email him I get a reply within minutes in most cases and he always follows up to ensure I have a great understanding of what is happening. I would recommend John and MEI to anyone!

I am sorry to jump on this post, but how do you switch it to a TA AFTER you have already booked your cruise? I am 105 days out from our cruise and we have one $71 payment left. Is it worth it to switch at this point? Thanks in advance!!!

When I inquired about switching mine I was told that they could only switch it to the TA if I had reserved my cruise in the past 60 days. Since I was in that window the switch was easy and the TA took care of everything. I am not sure if they have the ability to work around that 60-day rule or if the 60-day rule makes it easier for them to get the reservation switched. I do know they had to send a request to RC asking to be able to switch the reservation. Of course, RC approved the switch within minutes of the request and the entire process was very easy. I would check with an MEI agent about being able to switch if this is something you are interested in. I know I am very happy that I switched. My TA has already saved me money and made a few reservation changes for me and I didn't have to deal with any of it myself.

The official rule is 60 days however Michelle has managed to switch reservations for us that were WELL over 60 days old.  You just have to get a TA who knows all the tricks !!

thanks for the thumbs up!
