I had the same thing happen to me as the other reporters of this company just wanted to add that I called the Bahamas ministry of tourism and No cruise line by that name ports at Any of their islands!!!!   This is a complete scam.  I checked out their website...they claim that their "flagship, the Bahamas Celebration, has been selected as the

Best Bahamas Getaway Cruise in 2010 by the Chief Editor of the prestigious Porthole Magazine - the worlds leading cruise travel magazine!"  this is also a lie...i went to the porthole website and a cruise line by the name of Celebration cruise line won this award not them.   Over the phone this "company" said that they were a partner of Ramada inn...checked out their official website and they are not listed as a partner....yet another lie.  Don't give them your credit card number they will deduct the money from your card on the spot.  I'm not sure how to go about reporting them to the authorities yet but as soon as i find out who to call I am and I suggest you do the same :)  lets help others not to get ripped off!

So the money you paid was not really there?

AUTHOR: ANON - (United States of America)

So what you are saying is that you tried to scam the cruise ship out of the fare? Then you want to report them to the authorities....I'm wishing you the best of luck in that endeavor.

update

AUTHOR: Mrs. Stone - (United States of America)

still haven't gotten the corporate number for ramada and the porthole magazine..honestly haven't had time but as soon as i do and talk to them ill add another update letting yall know what they say.  Lucky i gave them a pre-paid creidit card number that did not have enough money on it for them to deduct from it.  After looking around this site for similar reports I'm so glad i didn't give them a diff credit card number cause they will take the money right then even if you tell them to wait till after you get paid and can afford it....i haven't seen one good thing written about this company yet.  Another person posted on this site that they have pretty much ripped everything off of the Celebration cruise line.

refund issue

AUTHOR: mio - (United States of America)

They just called me this morning, they knew my name and the place I dropped the lucky draw(dont remember if boat cruise was one of the prizes) so I thought it shouldnt be a scam. They sent me an email and told me to have a look at their website and I was convinced by the video of Carmen Electra also with the real business registered licence in Flordia(I checked the government website). After thinking that my family hasnt been on a vacation for a long time i decided to buy the whole package of $665 plus insurance coverage. However after I did the audio receipt, I figure out that its not such a good idea to spent that much money for a vacation, plus I need to pay for a plane ticket to get there. I called them to get a refund but this manager said they can only refund back 582 + insurance because they have a cooperate policy that states after a transaction is complete they need to hold a $83 deposit of some sort if I want a refund....

Do they have the right to keep a $83 deposit in state law? And their claims about the "Best Bahamas Getway Cruise in 2010" and teamed up with Bahama Ministry of Tourism being false, do I have the right to ask for full refund since their imformation was misleading?
