Free Cruise to Bahamas+ Ft Lauderdale, Orlando

I received a voucher for $1300 for a free 2 night cruise to the Bahamsa, 2 nights in Ft Lauderdale and 2 nights in Orlando.

Bahamas Celebration Cruise Line.

Does anyone have any experience with this? I know they want to sell timeshares.

Thanks !

In my book, if it sounds too good to be true, it likely is.

This is the fleabag hotel they will have you stay in- you will see many references to the promotion in the dreadful reviews

bk said it, but it bears repeating. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

Repeat after me " If it sounds too good ... "

The company behind most of these offers is advertising for salespeople in our local paper today , promising them $100 for each sale- so they have ample motive to lie about everything to make their commission

Sounds like a good paying job with the number of people who post on the forum after falling for the scam. I couldn't live with myself though, so not for me.
