I read where we cannot ask for a travel agent's name, and then I also see many travel agents posting and some travel groups.

The TA's that post or advertise are sponsors of CC, posting one's own TA would be competing with sponsors. That's how I understand it.


Also, welcome to Cruise Critic!

As I see it, allowing names just opens up too much possibility of fraud.

If I own X Travel, I could pretend to be a very satisfied customer of X Travel, and write rave reviews of the outstanding service I got.  Maybe I actually give terrible service, but could generate a lot of business by continually giving fake glowing reviews.

There are posters that admit that they are travel agents, but they do not link to their agencies.  Travel agency ads are a source of revenue for CC.  EM
