I ordered the Genie Bra from an informercial and was told that I won a free cruise. I was transfered to the senior travel coordinator of Caribbean Cruises, Rachael Rizer, who gave me the particulars. It was for a two day cruise out of Palm Beach Florida. The cost to me was $59 per person, double occupancy, to cover port taxes.
That sounded reasonable. I was told that meals and all drinks are free except for alcohol and tips. That also sounded reasonable, having gone on cruises in the past. I gave my address, so they knew I also lived in florida, near Palm Beach. I had not been on any vacation in 4 years and I needed a "get away". I was told that the ship was the Celebration. I was transfered to another person who tried like heck to upgrade me for $199 for an outside cabin. I declined, since I only use my room to shower and sleep.
I could see he was getting frustrated and I was transfered to another person. This female tried to offer me an extended vacation for after my cruise. Two days at a hotel in Fort Lauderdale and the normal sight seeing stuff. I declined that because I live in Ft Lauderdale and I would rather sleep in my bed. Having lived here since 1965, I have seen it all. I just wanted my two day cruise!!!!
I had given them my credit card number to pay the $118 to cover port charges for two people. They got so mad at me I was told that this was not for Florida residents. It should not matter where I live...if I won something they should honor it. A thump on the head for the Genie Bra people for associating themselves with this scam...they have their own problems anyway from what I read....
