I just wanted to add my two cents to this thread. After reading this thread I decided to contact MEI Travel. Now, I already had booked on my own back on 4/1. After I was contacted by Danette from MEI

Thumbs up for Michelle at MEI

Not an MEI customer (not yet anyway),  but I was pretty impressed on how fast [email protected] responded to the initial question

I looked on MEI website and there is no one near me. Do you serve clients that are long distance? How do you do that? 

WE have agents all over the US - even more than you saw on the site.  You can fill out the quote request and ask for someone near your home location or if you want to email me directly with how you would like to be contacted and a few details, I can match you up with an agent that will respond in the style you like.  Some people prefer text, email or phone calls and I have agents that have those preferences as well.

I just wanted to add my two cents to this thread. After reading this thread I decided to contact MEI Travel. Now, I already had booked on my own back on 4/1. After I was contacted by Danette from MEI and had given her all the info, not knowing that RCCL doesn't allow a transfer to a travel agent after 60days of booking, I received a e-mail from RCCL stating this fact. I e-mailed Danette thanking her and apologizing for wasting her time. She then said hope was not lost and she was going to contact another dept and see what she could do. Low and behold about 10 days later, my reservation transfer was approved and on top of that, she got me a price drop of almost $500 off my original reservation price, 4 months after my initial reservation and first payment, along with a OBC as a gift from her. The savings would have been more than enough. 

That's what I call service! I will never go it alone again and always recommend MEI Travel!

Thank you for giving us a try!

So glad that Danette was able to save you money along with a little extra gift!

I filled out the contact form on this website and have been communicating with Stephanie from MEI. She has been helpful. Now I just have to decide on which cabin we want. Either a OVB or a JS. We just had a JS on our very first cruse on Symphony a little over a week ago and we want to take advantage of our casino royal offers. $1250.00 off combined between both!

Stephanie has helped us with our last 4 cruises on RCCL. She has saved us each time and is so easy to deal with. Our latest booking last week for January was great and she took care of the reservations through Casino Royale. It is so much easier letting her do this plus gave us some OBC.

Hello everyone! Has anyone else been able to transfer a cruise to an agent after the 60 days or is that some kind of rare thing that can be done once in a while?

I booked an Alaska cruise back in November and after seeing this post I decided to check the price again. The difference was $350 so we called Royal Caribbean and they matched the price. Has anyone else had any luck with doing that?

Is there a limit on the number of times the price of a cruise can be changed if there is a difference with each sale that happens?

Thank you!

There is no limit to how many times you re-price as long as it is prior to final payment. 

As far as transferring to a TA after 60 days, I have heard that MEI agents have had luck in that department.

Hey there!

We will not have any issues taking something over after the 60 day mark.  It may take a couple of days, but we can accept the transfer and start looking for discounts for you right away!

So many people in this thread talk about how responsive and great Stephanie is. While I agree that she was extremely responsive leading up to my booking and forking over my down payment, she has not been since. With the exception of what I assume to be automated emails talking about new cruise deals offered by RCCL with a tag that states she is continually looking for better offers, she has not responded to me yet. I’ve sent two different emails weeks apart and have heard nothing. This has been my first experience with a travel agent, and I hope to not be my last. But, the lack of responding to emails is very disappointing. Particularly since it was so great on the front end...while trying to get my business.

Oh wow, certainly a different experience.  I just spoke to her and made a payment, quick and easy.

Hello,

I would love it if you would contact me directly with some examples and feedback so I can work with her on this.  I would be happy to move you if you are unhappy with your agent to another agent.  Just email me at [email protected] and I will jump in to make sure you are happy.

Stephanie has done a fine job for me and my family also.  Our first MEI experience was the group cruise last November and Stephanie handled ours and my daughter's reservations.  Since then we have booked two additional cruises with her.  The last, just a week ago on the Celebrity Edge.  The day after booking the price went down and when I received my confirmation it reflected the new lower price.  I've found her to be responsive and helpful.

If you ever get the chance to take one of the group cruises do it. Annette does an amazing job organizing the activities and herding the cats.

We had a few issues with her also but it was on the front end.  I've booked another cruise since then but just chose not to use a travel agent and do it on my own.
