I’ll admit it: Even though there are, at last count, 4,386 reality shows that share the premise that fashion is the most important thing in the whole universe, I hadn’t really been paying attention.
Experience tells us that if an RFP arrives unexpectedly without any prior involvement from us we stand a very small chance (10% -15%) of winning the business. We might be better off chucking it in the bin and going back to cold calling rather than taking the trouble and time to respond. In these cases the buying firm will have already researched the market, may well have met with one or more of our competitors and, worse case (not that uncommon), already have a chutes parts in mind. But nevertheless they need to go through the motions of a procurement process, searching the market and getting competitive quotations. Hence your RFP, you lucky salesperson!

Your local newspaper will have a cruise travel section with lots of ads for cruises and will list discount fares. Or go to your local bookstore and browse the Magazine section for Cruise related publications. And of course the Cruise lines all have websites where you can book directly. But if you are a new cruiser it is best to go to a Travel Agent that knows cruising and can answer all your questions including the pro and cons of each and every cruise line.
Cruise Tip: If you are strictly looking for price, go to travel agents that have booked large blocks of rooms on a particular cruise and they will be able to give you a good discount. Just make sure that this is the type of cruise you want to take. Consider the ships “personality”. There are ships that are completely casual all of the time, or ships that promote partying, and ships were people are elegantly dressed all of the time. Choosing your cruise style is one of the first things you should decide, this will help the Travel Agent find the ideal ship for you.
My point is that you may want to take expert advice with a grain of salt, and maybe the whole shaker. Some fashion experts can be positive and wonderful, and some can really mess with your head, whether they mean to or not. By all means, read or watch them, but if you’re starting to feel worse about yourself as you do, pull out. The most useful fashion experts are the ones who start with the premise that you’re a babe and then work to help you become the most fabulous version of yourself.
